It should last 10 minute once edited. The plot focuses on an only character. There will therefore only be one actor, not even any walk-ons nor dialogues.</p> <p> The casting of the actor is therefore at the core of the project.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Consequently, Augustin Jacob and his atypical looks will play this role. </p> <p>  </p> <p>  <img alt="Capture_d__cran_2014-11-18___13.07.10-1416312592" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/139098/Capture_d__cran_2014-11-18___13.07.10-1416312592.png"></p> <p> <em><strong>Augustin JACOB </strong></em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> If the acting is crucial, the role of music is just as important. Indeed stripped of any dialogues, the film will nurture from an original score co-composed by the director and performed by the gifted soloist violinist Hugues Borsarello.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="_dsc5387-1412594247" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/125579/_DSC5387-1412594247.jpg"></p> <p> <strong><em>Hugues BORSARELLO </em></strong></p> <p> <a href="http://www.borsarello.com" target="_blank">Official site</a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The shooting</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> It will take place mainly outdoors, therefore to prevent form bad weather, it will spread over 4 days.</p> <p> The date of the shooting is set for the end of October in the vicinity of Saint-Etienne in a breathtaking location.</p> <p> The shooting will will start before the end of funding, allowing us to share the evolution of the project in real time.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_1075-1415140744" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/134731/IMG_1075-1415140744.JPG"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_1070-1415140573" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/134728/IMG_1070-1415140573.JPG"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_1072-1415140651" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/134729/IMG_1072-1415140651.JPG"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_1076-1415140863" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/134734/IMG_1076-1415140863.JPG"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Image_kkbb_2-1412527546" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/125426/Image_kkbb_2-1412527546.png"></p> <p> <strong>Shooting location</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The crew</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                 Director     Grégoire  BERTHON</p> <p>                                                  Assistant Director    Kevin NOTARISTEPHANO</p> <p>                                        Director of photography     François GLEVAREC</p> <p>                                                     Sound Engineer     Solange BERNAZET</p> <p>                                             Production Manager     Francois  RIBEYRON</p> <p>                                                                     Actor     Augustin JACOB</p> <p>                                                                    Music     Hugues BORSARELLO</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Once again the idea is to simplify things so the team will be reduced to a minimum but of course without any artistic compromise.
