<p>This is not a film about gastronomy, or even cooking.</p> <p>The history of life paths,... the birth, the family, the territory, the schooling, the professional path(s), the encounters and the moment that triggered the ENVY. The characters in this film have had, in their life stories, a triggering element that makes them brilliant, happy today... but the path to eXcellence is not without obstacles!</p> <p>2 women and 5 men, on 3 continents, &nbsp;<br /> &quot;Seven characters, seven lives, seven lives, seven eXcellences&quot;</p> <p>Gastronomy, made up of rigour, knowledge, creations or madness, is highlighted to illustrate what is being said. Because the team that surrounds these great chefs is very similar to our society: Excellence is made of honesty, truth and a perfect awareness of what is right. Finally, this Excellency can be a way to multiply these little moments of stealth, happiness and well-being.<br /> This film highlights, men and women of the kitchen, to give some keys to the spectators, some answers to all those who do not dare, who have not succeeded in letting their desires dominate their fears.<br /> A motivating, beautiful, smiling, human film, carried by Alexis Maingaud&#39;s musical compositions, with seven emblematic and charismatic characters of gastronomy who share the poster on a field where we hear them only too little.</p> <p><br /> 7 emblematic characters of French gastronomy, on 3 continents... They share, they transmit their experiences<br /> Where did they come from?<br /> Where does this strength, this desire come from?</p> <p>A film about the perpetual battle between fears &amp; desires!</p> <hr /> <h3 style="text-align:center"><strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/335307930" target="_blank">Trailer</a></strong></h3> <hr /> <p><br /> With :&nbsp;<br /> <strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/album/5502674" target="_blank">Virginie BASSELOT</a></strong><br /> M.O.F - 2 Michelin stars<br /> Le Negresco - NICE<br /> FRANCE</p> <p><strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/album/5502674" target="_blank">S&eacute;bastien BRAS</a></strong><br /> Excluding Michelin ranking<br /> The SUQUET - LAGUIOLE<br /> FRANCE</p> <p><strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/album/5502674" target="_blank">Dominique CRENN</a></strong><br /> 3 Michelin stars<br /> CRENN Workshop - SAN FRANCISCO<br /> U.S.A.</p> <p><strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/album/5502674" target="_blank">Alexandre GAUTHIER</a></strong><br /> 2 Michelin stars<br /> La Grenouill&egrave;re - LA MADELEINE SOUS MONTREUIL<br /> FRANCE</p> <p><strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/album/5502674" target="_blank">Julien POISOT</a></strong><br /> 1 Michelin star<br /> Mercues Castle - MERCUES<br /> FRANCE</p> <p><strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/album/5502674" target="_blank">Emmanuel RENAUT</a></strong><br /> 3 Michelin stars - M.O.F.<br /> Salt flakes - Meg&egrave;ve<br /> FRANCE</p> <p><strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/album/5502674" target="_blank">Fabrice VULIN</a></strong><br /> 2 Michelin stars<br /> Tasting Room<br /> MACAU</p> <p>They share their lives, transmit, without giving lessons, to perhaps trigger a momentum:&nbsp;<br /> &quot;Be fair and honest with yourself, in word and deed,<br /> do not judge,<br /> do not make assumptions,<br /> do your best.&quot;</p> <h2><strong>The&nbsp;team</strong></h2> <p>A small team to build strong relationships with the characters in the film.<br /> the objective of the shooting in the kitchen is not to stage, just to capture the life, the looks, the exchanges in the kitchen and especially the magnificent alchemy that animates these teams.</p> <p>Olivier, the director is an &quot;Imagist&quot;, his career as a photographer for the magazine press has opened the doors of many high-end gastronomy brigades.</p> <p>He was inspired by it, fed by it.</p> <p>&quot;The world of cooking has so much in common with our society, those who are in the light and the workers in the shadows.

Allocation of funds

<p>The filming began in April 2018, thanks to the support of a first partner. He gave the impetus, the first impetus!<br /> The rest of the investment is taken from the author&#39;s modest savings.<br /> 80% of the budget of the film already completed</p> <p>There is still to be financed:<br /> - the soundtrack of the film<br /> - sound mixing<br /> - colorimetry<br /> - the rest of the trips (and there are many of them)<br /> - all ancillary costs</p> <p>- <strong>A first step of &euro;6,000</strong> to finalize the basic post-production<br /> <strong>- Second level at &euro;12,000</strong> : 5.1 sound mixing in the auditorium<br /> <strong>- Last level at&nbsp;&euro;30,000 : Traductions &amp; subtitles</strong><br /> Any additional amount at the last level will give the film crew the opportunity to repeat some scenes with more technical means. Because the very subject of the film pushes us, every day, to be in detail and precision, we would have the opportunity to repeat some scenes.</p> <p><strong>X</strong> to all</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
