In a school corridor, Alphonse catches up with a girl who suddenly faints in front of him. He tries to kiss her stupidly, but Marco shows up and makes a fool out of him. Six months later, it’s summer. Alphonse is excited at the idea of spending the month of August alone, without his roommate.
After her studies at the Fine Arts Academy of Saint-Etienne, Catherine Buffat (b. 1966) worked as an opaquer, inbetweener and stop-motion animator. In 1998, she illustrated the children's book The Ogre (Editions du Ha Ha!). From 1998 to 2004, she animated puppet films (La Cancion du microsillon by Laurent Pouvaret, A Love of TV's by Denis Walgenwitz) and worked as a graphic designer. Her path crossed Jean-Luc Gréco at Folimage 17 years ago, and their collaboration gave birth to eight short films.
In 1983, Jean-Luc Greco (1965) entered the Graphic Design Department of the Fine Arts Academy of Valence. After his studies, he started to work at Folimage Studio as a designer of sets and puppets. He discovered various animation techniques and became an inbetweener in 1991. He published comics, children's books and illustrations, under the pen name of Spata. He exhibited at the International Children’s Book Fair in Bologna, at the Itabashi Museum in Tokyo and at Valence’s theatre. He met Catherine Buffat at Folimage where their collaboration as co-directors has begun.
