Since 2011, I have been offering workshops for the production of animated films from paper cut, in various contexts, notably in media libraries, at the Maison des metallos, at the Forum des images, at the Museum of Man->Art636], at the Grand Palais... which I named “Animated Cinema”, not “Cartoon”, because the animation is made “at sight” and the shooting is in sequence. The presence of the hands in the animation carries to me a true poetic value, as one can find it in the puppet theater. These films are usually silent.

In this context, in order to boost the creative dynamic, I can also realize these “light” films. Mediation is a deep sharing of creativity. Here are some of the films I have made in these workshops.
