DIRECTION: Frédéric Even, Louise Mercadier
Frédéric Even graduated in comprehensive literature and comparative studies at the Sorbonne; Louise Mercadier studied social science at Paris I University and sculpture and animation at the beaux-arts ateliers in Paris. After their studies, they became interested in animated films in stop-motion. Fascinated by this technique, they decided to make their first self-produced animated short film, Metamorphosis, a free adaptation of Kafka’s short story. The film was very successful at festivals. They then wrote the script for a second stop-motion animated short film: Sororelle. In addition to his personal projects, Frédéric is a high school literature teacher in Seine-Saint-Denis, France, and Louise leads audio-visual initiation workshops. For example, she has led workshops at migrant workers’ homes in Paris for a year, and created an animated film with children hospitalized in three European hospitals. Sororelle is their first professional film.
