I love the art direction of these images. They are centred on a very particular sense of place, and the palette and lighting are truthfully based on the Scottish landscapes of highland and island.

The visual development was initiated by Evgeni Tomov, and Bjarne Hansen is credited as Art Director.

There’s an interview with Sylvain Chomet here, (Here’s the YouTube version), and a mini portfolio of stills here

Full cast and crew credits on the IMDB site.

Sylvain Chomet’s previous credits as director include “Les Triplettes de Belleville” and “The Old Lady and The Pigeons

The poster for the film.  It reads: The Illusionist.  A Film by Sylvain Chomet, based on the script by Jacques Tati.
