Mily in a contemplative moment, admiring the process of Vinzent in
silence eating his breakfast, asks: “Can you fill my silence?”.
The
answer of the question begins with another question - “With words?”
Strawberry Jam is a movie about an exchange of ideas between
the value of the silence and the value of the word.

Blind Data
Web Series - Drama (9 Episodes)
Blind Data” is a series when two strangers (a German and a French) meet and develop a relationship, without ever seeing each other, as they are required to be blindfolded at all times. They are part of a scientific study. There are clear rules: they can't see each other (both wear blindfolds), personal information are forbidden as both signed a contract, and they let two scientists watch them and eventually turn their lives around as they go into something much deeper than a simple experiment.
We tried to create a social real experiment.

The production team made an incredible effort so the two main actors did not even see theirselves once during the whole shooting. Both acted together without seeing each other, talked to each other without even knowing their names.

Sweet Water of Memory
Short Film (30 min.)
The Memory is an editing room, we remember our past all the time from
various possibilities and needs, we remember something, because we don’t want to forget, we remember something to understand who we are today and where we are going. The sense of normality of each person is based on what is stored in memory as a reference.

The film “Sweet Water of Memory “ discusses the value of memory and its power to construct a personality. The character called Leon Nepomuk, he is a German who considers his memory to be a place to control his feelings. His recollections are based on the smells that he has
experienced in the course of his life, and the people around him
question his normality.
