Interview

How long did it take to make your short?
About a year.

Was it difficult to get financing?
No, we are lucky to have a good financing system in France for short films.

Which thoughts come to mind concerning a “European cinema community”?
We have produced several non-French European directors and until now, it has been an extremely pleasing and straightforward experience. Although we each have our own culture and experience, the communication is quite easy and it's quite obvious that we have a lot of common ground.
We also have the chance to have so many festivals screening our films all over Europe and visiting them is always an incredibely rewarding experience.
