I have travelled to Arles way back before CGI existed. Arles is an ancient town with Roman ruins, medieval stones, Van Gogh's ear and modern coffeehouses. It's a gateway to Camargue, where I went chasing wild white horses with a camera. It was a film camera, born before me, but sturdy like my car, I remember following the French (when in France and all that) driving through salty Mediterranean shallow seawater to get to remote beaches.
Time-traveling to today, Arles has CGI schools with branches in India and creative acronyms. Supinfocom (école SUPérieure d'INFOrmatique de COMmunication, roughly University of Communication Science) is a computer graphics university with campuses in Valenciennes, Arles (France) and Pune (India). i09 featured shorts from Arles here and here.
