Production I.G and Geneon Ent. (USA) Inc. announces the signing of a creative partnership between the two companies in the creation, development and production of an animated music video for French music diva Mylene Farmer.

The animation staff includes top creators from the team that made INNOCENCE, such as director Kusumi Naoko (METROPOLIS), character designer/animation director Kazuchika Kise (OTOGI ZOSHI) and background artist Shuichi Hirata (XXXHOLIC - A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM).
