With the help of a masked rebel driving a blue R8 Gordini, Mister R and his wife plot a radical clothing revolution to overthrow monochromic orange totalitarianism.
Jean-Christophe Lie was born in Tarbes, France in 1970. After studying at the School of Fine Arts in Toulouse and at the CFT Gobelins in Paris, he began his professional career at Walt Disney Studios in Montreal, as an assistant animator.

After seeing a film by Sylvain Chomet and Nicolas De Crecy, he left Montreal to work on Chomet's next production, "Les Triplettes de Belleville," in which he supervised the animation of the Triplette characters.

Later on, Jean-Christophe entered the team of Michel Ocelot and Bynydicte Galup to create reference animations for "Kirikou and The Wild Beasts".

Following this, he supervised part of the animation in the Franco-Spanish feature film "Nocturna," directed by Victor Maldonado and Adrian Garcia.

He gained his first experience as assistant director for Blutch in the Prima Linea Production of the feature film "Fear(s) of the Dark."

In 2008, he directed his first short film with Prima Linea Production, "The Man in the Blue Gordini," which he also wrote/designed/co-animated. The film was an official selection in Cannes and Annecy and will be shown on Canal+.

In addition to his other work, he also illustrates in the magazine Sine Hebdo, a crime fiction serial called "Les Furieuses," written by Serge Quadruppani.
