The director's words

"I have been directing musicals with teenagers for 6 years. During all these years, I have met great young people. Some of these young people have seduced me with their sensitivity and their complexity but especially by their "joie de vivre", their nature, their energy. Those years are mixed moments of high and down phases, where everything is to be build and when dreaming is still allowed. it is the age where everything is to be built, when dreaming is still allowed, age where you still believe.


Beyond the night  is a slice of life, sixteen hours of an eighteen years old boy, who is just leaving the high school life.

The film is showing the truth as it is, in order to be naturalistic..

"Beyond the night seduced us with its simplicity and its accuracy. The experience of Philippe as an actor allows us to think that he will give the film a real authenticity. Directing many plays with young comedians Philippe has showed us he knew where to find talent in these teenagers and get a rare sincerity from them." The producers.

Why fund it?

Coproducing will allow us to complete the budget.


Trampofilms, Renaissance Eye Productions (Paris/New-York) and Sandgate productions will finance the major part of the film Beyond the night.


The money we raise will finance the transport of the film unit (24 technicians, 10 actors + extras) to the set, the setting and accessories of the film, as well as lightening equipment for the 8 days of shooting.

Without this part of financing, the film will not reach the artistic requirements we expect. This is why we rely on your cinematographic curiosity and on your good will to help the film being made in the best conditions possible.
