Notes

The short film Nous sommes eux (We are them) by Maribel Bedoya was a lovely project, for the film was almost entirely silent. I had then all the liberty to give a tone, an atmosphere to the movie, especially because Maribel almost gave me complete freedom. We are waiting for the answer of many festivals to give you the premiere date.

The only constraint that I had was that Maribel wanted piano and strings. Then we decided together that the strings should be heard once the miracle was happening (yes, it is a movie about a miracle).

Since the film was silent, the music could not be just an accompaniment that would go unnoticed. On the contrary, the soundtrack was becoming almost the whole soundscape of the movie. The music had to be coherent by itself, since it was played almost without interruption during 11 minutes. Through the music, I tried to translate the essence of the film by focusing on two words: simplicity and candour.
