Designing and directing the film}} This film was conceived in collaboration between Isabel Toutaud, General Delegate of the Afnic Foundation, and Benoît Labourdette.
  • The commission consisted of a graphic film with voice-over.
  • The starting point was the writing and recording of the voice-over by Isabel Toutaud.
  • Joint work on the vocal intentions, recording in the Afnic offices using a mobile studio sound recording system.
  • Then the choice was made of a square image format, to remain in the aesthetics of what had been conceived for the first series of films to promote projects supported by the Afnic Foundation in 2019.
  • And finally, the choice to use simple pictograms to illustrate the successive themes addressed by the voice over.

The challenge was above all the clarity of the speech, and the realization, within a limited budget, of an aesthetic object that was held.

I produce and direct corporate films and their possible projection sets, articulating the work with the exact needs. Invent methods of work, often collective, which will enable the project to meet its objectives better both in its content and in its way to be conducted, its budget and technical requirements.
