I'm Baptiste Ménage, I'm working for Deal Productions as production assistant since Septembre 2018. I mainly deal with projects in development.
Several years ago I made a short film back in south of France from where I am.
I had my own production / rental / actors' training company in France til I remember my aim was always to make films, and not being a CEO. So I left everything I had and took an opportunity to do an Erasmus Entrepreneur in Luxembourg, where I met Alexandra Hoesdorff and Désirée Nosbusch, and stayed here.
I also write a lot (I published a novel 1 year ago) and am both passionate about cinema and literature.
I plan to shoot my short film SOKOLNIKI on the week-end of the 13th and 14th of February.
Logline is: Jonathan (70ish) just died. A young punk girl wakes him up in the afterlife to guide him in the following choice: in a few minute his body will be reanimated, but does that worth it?
My team is composed as follows:
Main actors: Gilbert Johnston and Phoebe Archer
Secondary actors: Bernardo Tuccillo, Kyle Vanderpool
DOP: Chris Poulles
Gaffer: Jo Gutenkauf
1st Assistant Camera: Océane Maitre
Sound engineer: Oliver Lang
Costume designer: Cynthia Hubsch
Shooting will take place in one only apartment (mine).
I am very happy to have this opportunity to create even during these hard times. Also it's a big chance for us to meet each other, and with our teams.
If I can be of any help to you, please feel free to reach me at anytime.
I'am also curious and keen to know more about you guys.
I am happy to announce my film SOKOLNIKI has been shot on last 13 & 14th of Feb with a brilliant team.
Now the editing starts with Anne Schiltz, another connexion done thanks to this Filmreakter project.
