"1991, a small village in Burgundy, France.
Seb (8 years old) and little Tommy (his 5 year-old brother), are having a good time at home during the summer holidays. Near their house lies a mysterious old stony dome called the Icehouse, and it is totally covered with grass and trees. It is in fact the last relic of a once prestigious but now ruined castle. At school, Seb’s companions claim that the dome hides a monster! So one day, returning from a fishing trip at the nearby pond, the young brothers walk in front of the dark entrance to the site. What they find here is both terrific and wonderful. It will take them into a great adventure and lead to the discovery of fantastic places. It seems that somewhere, the castle of their dreams awaits … “

Mon Village est Magique was a series of 6 short stories for children, inspired by my own childhood and set in real locations. It is important for you to understand that I grew up near to the ruins of a real castle, which has inspired me a lot during my life. As a result, I chose to retell these facts in the story, so that I could share it with everyone. In the stories, the heroes discover the ruins of this castle, and start dreaming of fantastic things, so I included magical events that recall the Middle Ages in France and Western Europe.

The central concept of Mon Village est Magique is that our world (the reality) is surrounded by multiple Magical Worlds. The 2 young heroes, Seb and Tommy, travel to some of these worlds. The worlds are all connected to a mysterious location called the Infinite Ocean. This Ocean is like Space, except that it is not filled with stars and planets, but with water and wells. You can travel from one well to another through tube-shaped whirlpools called “fissures”. These are passages of water under very high pressure, that you could compare to wormholes. A peculiarity of the Infinite Ocean is in relation to its water: it is Magical Water, and its energy is the source of all the fantasy events in all the worlds.

Finally my 2nd Calarts film is completed! It feels really great to make a more personal film this year, now that I know the ropes of filmmaking a bit better. I wanted to make something that focuses on how meaningful it is to make food for someone you love. My family’s lives practically revolve around cooking for each other, so it’s a theme that I’m deeply attached to. I hope you enjoy it!

Big Bang Dog from Parquerama Studios on Vimeo.

Is it possible that it happened yesterday? He disappeared right before my eyes and everything remains just as different? Why do they multiply and divide? Only the dogs take this as a natural fact.
Please don’t go into the wrong door. They are the only suspects.
……………………………………………………

Es posible que haya pasado ayer? Desapareció en mis narices y todo sigue igual de distinto?
Porqué se multiplican y se dividen? Sólo los perros lo toman con normalidad. Por favor, no entre en la puerta equivocada. Ellos son los únicos sospechosos.
