Short Film: Le Miroir

Here’s a fantastic short film from directing duo Ramon and Pedro (Antoine Tinguely and Laurant Fauchère), called Le Miroir. The film presents one man’s life, from childhood to old age, using his bathroom mirror as the “lens.” The filmmakers employ some clever camera work and editing to pull it off, which you can see in the behind the scenes below. The BTS also shows just how much work went into this labor of love, from make up to designing and building the set to the rehearsal that went into getting the actors’ movements synchronized. In addition to being nominated for best short in the Prix du Cinema Suisse, the film took “most creative short” in the Shanghai International Film Festival, as well as “the audience award” in the Manlleu Film Festival in Spain.
