what's next?

Episode 1 of my 'WOMEN OF THE WEST' series is launching.  2018 promises to take things to another level yet again, as shooting is already underway for my first fiction feature this time (ain't got no time to waste!), for which scenes 1, 2 and 3 have already been shot in Japan, England and Norway. Loads more to come, as well as the resolution to release one short film per month (ok, maybe not anything crazy elaborate, but something beautiful/meaningful/important regardless). So... stay tuned !

Currently :


* designing a pitch deck for an episodic on fortune tellers


* editing my short film "The Turning of the Tide" starring Kirilola


* writing a feature inspired by Buddhist mythology
