Dopff, Paul
(1948, Colmar, Haut-Rhin, France - )
   After studying decoration at the Beaux-Arts of Nancy for three years, he learned cinema (editing and direct­ing) at the Paris-based Conservatoire Indépendant du Cinéma Français in 1969-1970. He already had worked as a cameraman with his cousin vulcanologist Maurice Krafft, who filmed the Etna and the Stromboli and made Super-8 cartoons at age fifteen. From 1970 to 1972, he directed commercials and created some credits titles. Then he shot three animated shorts and founded his own production company, Pink Splash Pro­duction, which financed and released many animation movies from 1971 to 1981. Between 1978 and 1983, he showed his films in New York (Carnegie Hall Cin­ema and Cornell University), Minneapolis (Art School), Los Angeles (University of California, Los Angeles), San Francisco (Pacific Film Archives), and various European countries. He also was an animator and special effects technician (1979 Gros Câlin / Cocco mio, Jean-Pierre Rawson, France / Italy) and creator of sound effects (1986 Le Bonheur a encore frappé, Jean-Luc Trotignon).
