Adieu is a poetic short animated music video created by Jean Jullien and his brother Nicolas (Jullien Brothers) for Coward’s (Nicolas Jullien) track of the same name. The film was released to mark last year’s International Women’s Day and is a bittersweet study over the milestones that a woman goes through in her life.
Jean and Nicolas Jullien are two French directors from Nantes, living and working in London. Jean did a graphic design degree in Quimper before coming to London, graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2008 and the Royal College of Art in 2010. His practice ranges from illustration to photography, video, costumes, installations, books, posters and clothing to create a coherent yet eclectic body of work. In 2011, he founded Jullien Brothers, specialised in moving image with his brother Nicolas. Nicolas alongside his activities as a director and an animator, is an electronic musician under the name Niwouinwouin & The Coward. He’s played live in London, Paris, New York, Barcelona and many other great cities. In 2012, Jean created News of the Times with Yann Le Bec and Gwendal Le Bec.
