THE STORY

A JOURNEY IN THE PARIS FIN DU SIÈCLE

Welcome to a timeless voyage, a captivating immersion into late 19th-century Paris through the extraordinary eyes of Toulouse Lautrec.
Our short film has been inspired by the vibrant biography “Lautrec, mon ami” of François Gauzi, an intimate friend of the painter.
Toulouse Lautrec is our special guide through this unique journey.
We witness Paris coming to live with the life energy of cabarets and cafè, where art and music melt into a dazzling visual spectacle.
His bold brushstroke and keen eye lead us through the world of circus art, a dimension where reality blends with fantasy.

BEHIND THE CREATION

A SPECIAL BLEND
OF HUMAN AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

At the heart of this cinematic creation is the fusion of human creativity and the capabilities of AI.
The screenplay unfolds through the penmanship of human minds, capturing the essence of Lautrec’s world with an emotional depth only achievable through human experiences.
Direction and editing, vital components of our storytelling, are guided by the nuanced understanding and artistic sensibilities of our human team.
The collaboration with artificial intelligence becomes the catalyst for innovation, allowing us to delve into unexplored realms of visual representation inspired by Lautrec’s artistry.
AI contributes a unique perspective, suggesting visual elements that challenge the conventional and breathe new life into the narrative.
It becomes a creative partner, expanding the horizons of our imagination.
