What if nature could one day allow you to grow anything and everything you want ?


The project


Participate and support the creation of a 1st surreal short film.




The synopsis


When the man crushes his cigarette into the ground of his potager, he does’nt realise the outcomes of his deed. The cigarette butt, as a seed would, has unexpectedly grown. Stunned by the phenomenon, he decides to thereto plant day-to-day residues and objects. His imagination will take him further…

The film


This project intends to be simple, full but not simplistic. 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.

The casting of the actor is therefore at the core of the project.



Consequently, Augustin Jacob and his atypical looks will play this role.

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.

The shooting


It will take place mainly outdoors, therefore to prevent form bad weather, it will spread over 4 days.

The date of the shooting is set for the end of October in the vicinity of Saint-Etienne in a breathtaking location.

The shooting will will start before the end of funding, allowing us to share the evolution of the project in real time.

Once again the idea is to simplify things so the team will be reduced to a minimum but of course without any artistic compromise. I

Grégoire Berthon

About the director... Having been brought up and educated consecutively in Ireland, USA, Germany, Finland and China, a still undefined artistic trend but enriched by those multiple experiences started to materialize. In 2013, he decided to jump in and direct an amateur short film. A while later and after great feedback, he is back to directing... See more
