genius loci

One night, Reine, a young loner, sees among the urban chaos a moving oneness that seems alive, like some sort of guide.


Genius Loci is an animated short film that i made from 2016 to 2019. It is produced by Kazak Productions, a company based in Paris, France.

i would like to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who worked on it during the past three years, and a special thank you to Brecht Evens and Céline Devaux who helped me to stay on the right track all the way through.
