Whatever they undertook or get ready to undertake, Paul and Gaëtan BRIZZI always favor the originality and the passion to the efficiency and to the standard.. They are authentics artists, that do not hesitate to question their own profession when they consider that she is not directed to the only purpose which they look for: transport the spectator in another universe which looks real. And for that the technique does not makes everything. First it requires a good story and a well written scenario...
