Presentation of the project - Note of intent
This project was created to promote new Belgian talent and provide them with experience. This short film will be presented in competitions and distributed very widely. The screenplay has been studied in order to gradually understand all the links between the characters. Tensions and intrigues will lead to an unexpected end, to say the least. The story makes it easy to get into the characters' skin in the face of today's society. Inspired by exercises from my acting classes, this story, after the introduction, leads to the plot before a surprising final fall. In addition to this short film, this project has the long-term goal of forming a tightly knit team that will give rise to other creations. –

Once upon a Time...
All stories, whether told or filmed, begin this way. It's these stories, these points of view and the emotions they emanate from the cinema, in particular, that fascinate me and make me vibrate. Cinema has always been a part of my life. The worlds of De Palma, Scorsese, Spielberg, De Niro, J-J Annaud, Jeunet and Caro, among others, cradled my adolescence. Then, beyond the content, the technical and aesthetic aspects appeared just as fascinating to me. The barber scene in "The Untouchables" piqued my curiosity. Cinema, second nature!

Far From The Crowd is a universe that could be qualified as "instrumental-doom-gothic", there are sometimes slow riffs giving melancholic ambiences, but also more peachy structures. The compositions are mainly made available to directors of audiovisual projects, whether short or feature films, in order to embellish them; and to be in perfect harmony with the story, the theme and the meaning of the project.
