2 Autumns, 3 Winters – 2013

 

2 Automnes 3 Hivers

This is the first time I work with Sébastien Betbeder ; I have been working quite a few times with Roman Dymny as sound recordists, but this time we’ve swapped roles. Roman was the location recordist,and I was the boom operator. The film was shot over various sessions in 2012 and 2013. We used a Zaxcom Deva V, Shoeps CMC6 microphones on the booms, CCM2 CCM4 and CCM41 as pairs and additional microphones. Wireless gear included Lectrosonics SMDB, Zaxcom TRX900, QRX100 with 4060-BM DPA and Countryman B6 mikes.

 

Abstract

Arman is thirty years old, and decides to change his life. As a new beginning, on this saturday morning, he starts to jog in the park. On a bend, he keeps his eyes down, doesn’t see Amelie, and bumps into her. This is their first meeting.

Benjamin is Arman’s best friend. One night, his head explodes. He collapses into a laurel hedge. Diagnosis is : stroke.

Between Autumn 2010 and winter 2012, the lives of Amélie, Arman and Benjamin are filled with encounters, accidents, love stories, memories…

The passing of time is made of monologues.
