Gary Levesque

Wizz / Quad Group

Teasing out the new game Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy from Eidos-Montréal, French director slash metalhead Gary Levesque of Wizz serves us some rockin’ 80s nostalgia in this animated music video for the Star-Lord band’s track “Zero to Hero.” Straight from a VHS tape, this is the classic song by the Star-Lord band. The animated music video amps up the nostalgia factor to 11 and gives viewers a taste of why superfan Peter Quill was inspired to adopt the “Star-Lord” moniker in the game.

When Gary Levesque graduated from the French animation university Supinfocom Valenciennes and joined Wizz as Flying V, he immediately started to work on a range of projects producing art toys, illustrations and directing commercials. While his 3D skills are highly developed, Gary likes to maintain a hand-drawn effect in his work, inspired by the subtlety and colours of traditional animation, cartoons and poster design. He has won awards at Eurobest, Epica, the Art Directors Club of Europe, been shortlisted at Cannes and recently had a very successful run with an extremely crafted film for SNSM that tells the story of a very frustrated mermaid!
