In 2004 "We needed to retranscribe our feelings in a fiction about our experience of precarious situation following the loss of a job. Our days become monotonous, restrictive. The stress consumes us. Despite my research, work is penne to come. Lack of means, I isolate myself more and more. Associable and on the tightrope, I dream in black and white. I dream of pigs "ROZZZ", symbol of the modern slave obsessed with money. Inactive, I stagnate until the day when ... The super 8 mm film was an obvious choice compared to the screenplay written in two months. It is "poor man's motion picture film". We shot with a camera bought in a flea market. We had very few days of shooting. We happened to shoot 50 shots in one day. We telescoped our footage digitally. Tedious work was done by David in post- prod to make "invisible" VFX (incrustations of images in all shots including a TV or PC screen and an alarm clock) Another challenge: 24 short sequences make up each day of the protagonist. Sequences which are linked to the rhythm of the famous "beep" of the monitors of vital signs. The duration of the sequences becomes shorter and shorter until causing the sound of the flat encephalogram; symbol of death. A sound of electric shock accompanies the plans of the saving woman. It is the rebirth of the protagonist. A meticulous montage of images & sounds to obtain a moralistic and symbolic drama.
In 2020 ZIGWIGWI recovers ROZZZ and refines its post-production to make it even more intense. The aspect of the images remains" dirty "and fits perfectly with the intentions of the screenplay. A judicious and also daring artistic choice in the face of an era when the image is in high definition.

In 2002 "After made some short films, we followed a rock group on their tour. We took care of the visuals projected on stage. Then for artistic differences, we separated. Apathivy was born from rushes of one of these visuals. We shot at 12 frames per second. The character made out of wood couldn't staying up. There was no screenplay. The sequences were improvised on the set. We use many tricks to invent sets and an original and disconcerting staging. One watchword: television, this monster that eats your brain. A month and a half of shooting for two months of post-production. A very good creative experience" In 2020 ZIGWIGWI recovers APATHIVY improves its post-production and reveals a consistent history and echoed in our present time
