MICHEL + NICO ▼
If we were to reduce Michel and Nico’s journey into one sentence, it would be “every day, learn something you didn’t know the day before”. It’s not surprising then these two brothers from Southwest France who are 100% self-taught, have in just 3 years, learned to perform, film, edit, and post-produce of all the short films, documentaries, and adverts that make up their nascent demo ; for TV channels or brands like ARTE, Eurosport, OrangeTV, Redbull as well as professional sports clubs.
Their style is a reflection of their desire to move forward in this new life, in a way that’s raw, honest, no frills… They love to observe, meet, write and propose ” for without material means, the important thing is to get better at telling a story ” while they describe with an often poetic and sensitive tone, composing and accompanied by a gripping atmosphere – and they continue to believe, that the most beautiful film remains to be made!
Their former lives as architect for Nico and social worker for Michel gives their director Duo a different and endearing spirit … Sort of passionate humanist precision. Identity reinforced by a one-year Chinese retreat in a Shaolin Temple to learn kung fu and meditation, so to bring nature closer and develop their mind, for today, always find a human and positive solution to all tests and questions in life.
That’s what surely seduced Grey London with their first try for a Gillette movie. It was a win-win while waiting for the next ones.
Sport and excellence, the human condition, travel and discovery are the subjects they love, as well as everything else, that they have not yet had the chance to explore.
