Little did Gondry and Doucet know that the process itself would be the film, and theyd soon be starring in a reality comic and film of their own devising. They settled on a process that involved inserting the real Julie into a landscape of her own drawings. After meeting and filming with Gondry in Brooklyn, Doucet returned to her native Montreal and created dozens of drawings for the scenery, while Gondry, in New York, worked on editing the footage itself. Over time, these two elements were combined, and the result is a magical, funny and touching 20-minute film. My New New York Diary contains all of Doucets drawings for the film, as well as the DVD containing the film itself. Both the film and Doucets graphic novella are being released only in this deluxe, hardcover volume from PictureBox, which does full justice to the richness and warmth of Doucet and Gondrys collaboration.
