Shorts to make you happy V
In an attempt to prove that short films should not necessarily be dark and morose, that optimism has never hampered talent, and that music, fantasy or laughter are likely to work hand in hand with meaningfulness and artistic venture, Philippe Braunstein, producer for Avalon Films, has come up with a choice of shorts, intent on offering, each in its own singular way, a spark of happiness.
AvalonPhilippe Braunstein has produced independant short and feature films for Avalon Films for over fifteen years, he specially favours projects which, through humour or fun, tackle serious issues. Hence, an editorial policy highhlighting the search for emotion and harmony, and tending to avoid any form of elitism, of distance or murky liking attitude. Thus, “Le soleil audessus des nuages” by Eric Le Roch, “Heures creuses” by Sébastien Sort or the series of “Fables africaines” by Luis Marquès and Claude Gnakouri.
Recently, he played the politically incorrect card (“Les couillus” by Mirabelle Kirkland) and the caustic musical card “Heureux qui comme Edouard” by Franck Lebon and Vincent Burgevin. In collaboration with Sophie Deloche, of Astharté et Compagnie, Philippe Braunstein develops two series for the television, “Sur un air d’Autoroute” and “Vestiaires”, and also a crossmedia TV/Web programme, “Les derniers hommes”. He recently started to work on the organization of special events dealing with cinema.
