Director's Statement

Three years ago, I was directing RUBBER, my second feature film, with a car tire in the main role. I really liked the idea of replacing the actor with an animated object, easier to direct and less demanding than a human being. Unfortunately, I didn’t share anything with this car tire, which was unpleasant and completely passive on the set. Since WRONG (2011), I have been forced to work again with real humans and have loved it ever since.

In 2012, I shot two movies in Los Angeles (thanks to Grégory Bernard and Realitism Films). The first one is WRONG COPS. This movie is dirty, stupid and simple. The second one, REALITY, is clean, clever and complicated. I am in the process of editing both. They are my best films so far.
