I fell happy this morning. Canon France has just confirmed that they will sponsor my first feature film !
shooting next week.
It's an amazing story, when I was in paris I met a staff from Canon who came to see me in the Yellow Korney galeries.
A week ago I had the idea of why not Canon sponsoring the movie, I didn't really believe it but reached out to that Canon friend that I met back in june and with his help I got to speak to the executives at Canon France and in 48 hours they approved the full sponsoring of all the gears to shoot our first long feature film !
What I like also is that they approved this after viewing a short I did a year ago called 'if only' that is not released on the web yet.
We are talking the Canon C300 Mark 2 that got release yesterday that has 15 Fstops of dynamic range, pro cine lens, anything we wanted.
In working with big brands I have never seen such a rapid decision. I want to thanks them from the bottom of my heart.
This movie is called the Hollywould't Im the lead actor and producer on the film. The film is going to be directed by my friend Dare Cinema . The music will be done by my buddy Kelvin Pimont who just completed Rob Schneider TV show 'Real Rob' for Netfilx. He scored all the musics, a complete wizard as a composer and has been composing since he was 3 years old no kidding.
I'm also working with Amélie Pimont who is the line producer and is pulling miracles daily.
It's a great team, I'm so happy to have so much talented friends.
I will not forget what Canon did for me today.
The movie is about me struggling trying to make it in Hollywood as a french actor, it's a comedy that I find really funny and I hope I will be as good as all the other amazing actors that we have and the script. It's an hommage to any artist that wants to achieve their artistic dreams.http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1134579-REG/canon_0635c002_eos_c300_mark_ii.html
