"Une nuit..." (One night...) is a short film adapted from a short story by Guy de Maupassant and directed by Tristan Isaac.


The project

 The script is adapted from a fantastic tale by Guy de Maupassant whose title is simply La nuit (The Night) : it follows a young man walking the streets by night through the city of Paris which became strange and mysterious.


 So that you can know who you'll leave your precious donations to, I suggest you learn more about the film crew :


 Tristan Isaac, the scriptwriter and the director, teaches at the Sorbonne in Paris and was, during two years, a critic for the CineAsia magazine which keeps on dealing with movie news on the internet.




Yann Seweryn, the director of photography, carries on, after having teached at the Sorbonne in Abu Dhabi,  a master's degree in cinematography at the Leon Schiller National Higher School of Film in Łódź




 Stéphane Touillier, the sound editor, the score composer and the producer, graduated from HEC Paris and studied, during ten years, piano and music theory at the conservatoire. Multi-instrumentalist, he worked, during a course, in the Piccolo Studios.




 Aurélia Isaac, the film editor and the production assistant, studied after having prepared for the Femis competitive exam, the post production at the Lycée Jean-Baptiste de La Salle in Reims and worked for the association Jules Vernes Aventures and for WAM, part of Publicis Group.




 Mohamed El Hayani, the main actor, performed especially  in Valère Novarina's Le drame de la vie for Jean-Pierre Vincent and in Victor Hugo's Lucrèce Borgia for Anne Torrès at the Théâtre des Amandiers in Nanterre and in Bertold Brecht's Un homme est un homme for Bernard Sobel at the Théâtre de Gennevilliers and at the Festival d'Avignon : he also worked for Radio France and played a part in several short films.



Why fund it?

 This collection will cover the expenses for the short film production and more precisely for renting video and audio-visual equipment : all the crew members are entirely benevolent et won't consequently be paid however funds may be raised.

 In case we'll go beyond the objective we set, the money we'll gather will allow us to pay the inscription fees to the festivals which we want to take part in but also to finance the promotion of the film.

 You'll have understood that the short film can't be shot without your help. Therefore we rely on your love for the cinema but also and above all on your generosity to allow Une nuit... (One night...) to see the light of the day.

La collecte est maintenant terminée, mais la production du court-métrage, elle, continue.

Et merci encore à tous ceux qui ont cru en nous : qu'ils sachent que nous nous engageons à ne pas les décevoir...
La collecte n'est cependant pas encore terminée et plus nous disposerons de moyens, meilleur sera le résultat : alors si certains étaient encore tentés par l'idée de soutenir le projet...
Juste un court message pour remercier mille fois tous ceux qui nous ont aidé à atteindre l'objectif que nous nous étions fixés en nous exprimant leur soutien, en relayant nos appels, en faisant passer le message mais aussi et surtout en nous offrant leurs précieux dons ! Car c'est grâce à eux que nous allons pouvoir réaliser notre court-métrage !
