Clips Conscience / Grandir

For the release of my first EP, we are preparing the shooting of several clips that will transcribe my universe in pictures.

Creators and the origins of the project

After studying cinema and theatre, I started working as an actor on various projects (SKAM France, Lavande, Mauvais Genre...). In parallel, I have been writing and making music for several years, and I started posting my first compositions and covers on the networks two years ago.

I started working on this EP almost a year ago, alone in my apartment. I recorded a few demos, then I met the composer Jonathan Galby with whom I collaborated on these 5 tracks. We worked several months as freelancers to record the EP in the best possible conditions. Very quickly I wanted to make clips on some of my songs, especially "Dorian", which I self-produced and which will be my first video clip shot in early July.


Patxi Arsa (@patxiarsa) is a director and photographer with whom I have been working for a year. After various collaborations, we had the desire to work together on this project.

He has made various projects, has already collaborated with different artists (Petit Biscuit, Shy'm) and his work revolves around the sensitivity of the people he stages, in an often dreamlike universe.

 
After listening to my EP, Patxi shared with me his artistic vision of these two tracks and we worked together on these clips.

 

The project in detail

I wanted to make this EP an open door to lots of different emotions : mixing melancholic ambiences and more frontal ones, on lyrics that are sometimes slam, sometimes sung.

"Conscience" and "Grandir" are two tracks that are very close to my heart and are the first ones I wanted to include in this project. These are personal texts, but in which I hope everyone will hear a piece of their story.

They are a diptych, they complete each other. One in a rather dark universe, the second proposing another vision, towards a brighter path.


Clips presentation :

Clip 1 - Conscience

"Conscience explores the inability to break our chains.

It is a sequence-shot, imagined as a painting, whose content is gradually discovered. In this painting, insomnia materializes in the form of a mattress on which Sohan is trapped, alone, on a beach.

The sequence-shot makes it possible to represent Sohan's psychological state in real time.

Playing with the frame allows the viewer to gradually reveal the setting and the story of the character. In this unique sequence we move from the close-up isolating Sohan's face to a larger landscape, representing his mental environment, conducive to introspection. The shooting is already set for the end of July."

Clip 2 - Grandir

"Grandir is thought as the continuation of Conscience, in a world where, in opposition to the first one, chains are broken, loneliness and inability to act are no longer at the centre.

It's a nocturnal wandering, accompanying Sohan until the early hours of the morning. A wandering during which he will cross paths with other people, bearers of hope, like messengers.

The shooting is set for August, with the same crew as for Conscience."

Allocation of funds

Ideally we would need 4000€ to shoot the 2 clips in correct conditions:

  • 1500€ for "Conscience", and 2500€ for "Grandir", distributed as on the graph above.
  • If we were to exceed this level, we could have better technical means, more shooting time, and pay the people who will work on these projects.

Each participation or sharing is important to us and we hope with all our heart that you will like our project.
