Lost In Motion

A stunning performance by dancer/choreographer Guillaume Cote. At first the dancer looks as if he's CG (computer generated), but I know for a fact that the CG world hasn't reached this realistic looking muscle movements, yet. Which makes me think that the editor of this video has done a terrible job of compositing if he's trying to make it look fake. Very heavy on saturation and contrast, which never looks good and the lighting is poorly executed. The key element in this video is he's dancing and how great of a dancer he is.

My Career Path

Fiat 500 by Gucci on

I feel this comes in a perfect time as I have recently transitioned from the automotive advertising industry into women's shoes/handbags product line.

This video sums up my career path, (but in reverse).

Take Care

Directed by Yoann Lemoine:

I started learning illustration and animation at Emile Cohl School, Lyon, and screen-printing techniques at Swindon College, London. After college in 2004, I started illustrating in several magazines and children’s books, in France and the USA. At the same time, I joined a french production team and started to direct my first 3D-animated TV ads and music videos, before putting my eye to the camera for my first live shoots.

Today, I live between Paris and New York, mainly working as a film director in media such as video, 8 to 35mm film, 2D and 3D animation, Stop Motion, photography, illustration, painting, screen printing, sculpture, collage, knitting, holograms, and more… I’m a very curious person, constantly looking for avenues of expression that combine those different mediums.

Call me a do-it-yourselfer.
