@02:40I have to say, I absolutely loves it to death and there should be a movie or a story made out of this.

@06:58Amazing... The touch of the artist, hard effort, blood, sweat, tears, imagination. You sir, have the makings of a good artist, 100% originally imaginative! I especially enjoyed how you matched keys and piano SFXs to the piano itself. Bravo! I bow to your talent.

@08:10The emotion here, in his face and breath and the sheer silence--perfectly done.

@07:44I'm loving this part, I'm no pianist, but the way he plays it seems as if he's becoming the music embodied. Great acting.

The first Short Movie I finished ! I have tons of projects that never went into complete filming/editing. I'm glad I finally finished one !

I wish to thank the entire crew:

Charlène, who helped me to find the actor and the pianist, who supported me during all preparation and who had a few good ideas during the shooting.
Thomas and Sami, who live two hours from Bordeaux by train and are very talented.
~Mathi09 who did a great job, and helped me a lot during the editing.
Mary who is a great camera operator.
Jeremy who had to travel three hours by train to come. He did a great job too.
Laurine, a magic girl I consult a lot when it comes to music.
And of course Fred, my long time best friend and roommate who had to support me during preparation, production and postproduction, who did a wonderful job as a co-director.

I also wish to thank my teachers in my art school who helped me about the location, and tips for the piano construction. Some of my classmates who supported me as well. And my parents, of course. :p

Pygmalion, it's...

2 month of preparation
100$ of budget
2 days of shooting
25 square meters of cardboard
1 liter of "chocolate" acrylic
77 minutes of video rushes
65 minutes of audio rushes for post synchronisation
3 weeks of editing
36gb of files on computer.
