The short feat. Jean Claude Rimbert is a tribute to The Marx Brothers and to the French filmmaker Jacques Tati known for Playtime and Monsieur Hulot’s Holidays…
It was shot in Silent 16 mm
For this film shot by the DP’s Georges Colinos, Nicolas Colinos and Elie Arié, I had to find an universal language with the use of a specific sound design as Tati did. Combined with frequent long shots of scenes with multiple characters, I wanted the results to focus audience attention on the comical nature of humanity when interacting as a group. Also, I wanted to do a comedy in these terrible times.
The score was written by Joel Diamond known for Danny Balint / The Believer (Sundance Award Winner), Dead Man Walking, Oleanna, Welcome to the Dollhouse
