This short movie has been realized with Pierre Berry and Sophie Robin. For 1'50" long, we spend all week-end during six months to create all components of the movie, especially the movie set make of piece of wood-market. (except the tea bag!). Many movies references are hidden in the set.
Thé Dansant (2') / director Mathieu Renouf / set Pierre Berry & Mathieu Renouf / puppet-masters Sophie Robin & Pierre Berry / music My Romance (Roger&Hart - Billy Bathgate Soundtrack), Montpellier 2002.
My first short movie realized in Montpellier. It has been realized in parallel of The Dansant. During one year, we spend our week-end, day and night, to make these eleven minutes. The result, I believe, is not so bad.

Japanese memories part 3 : Zen garden (2003)
Always realized in Sendai, with this short movie, I have wanted to underline my feeling when I went to this garden. Located near my japanese student home, I went often to rinoji dera. Often alone, I decided one day to take my camera and to realized this movie. The music of Joe Hisaishi issue from Dolls (Beat Takeshi movie) is very appropriate to comment the images. No word, .... just the silence.
