Les mouvements de l'eau

Les mouvements de l'eau is a short movie realized by François Ray and Luce Jalbert as their final project at La Fémis.

Félix David and I followed the project from its pre-production and handled the 22 fx shots, ranging from background element removal and green screen integration to more surrealist effects.
