Ann Sirot & Raphaël Balboni
Ann Sirot and Raphaël Balboni are writers and directors of fiction films.
The duo started in 2007. In the process of raising funds for short film Just the letter T , that was ment to be their first work together, they start longing for action, and quickly set up a project to experiment stage methods on the set, with many rehearsals, lots of writing during shooting, and room for improvisation. This results in the short film Last Play, an experimental thriller which ends with a narrative blow out.
Next film is Domestic Tale, a more challenging project about the feeling of jealousy in love relationships. Just as before, they initiate at the same time a low-budget, very-small-production film, that allows them to experiment and keep on practising their filmmaking skills : The wolf’s version, an adaptation of The little Red Riding Hood in which the wolf gets to tell his side of the story.
Then comes Lucha Libre, a short film on couple arguments and With Thelma, featuring a childless couple abruptly in charge of a 3-year-old.
The duo is now working on two feature films, that are both comedy-dramas.
