Aura, A Luminous Experience in the Heart of Montreal’s Basilica

Moment Factory’s Bruno Ribiero signs this awesome work for Montreal’s 375th festivities.

“As we celebrate the 375th anniversary of our founding, the time is right for Montrealers to rediscover the Notre-Dame Basilica and to highlight it for everyone to enjoy. Thanks to the luminous, musical experience designed by Moment Factory, the Basilica dives right into the 21st century, into the digital multimedia era. Which just goes to show that even a 188-year-old institution can be a part of our smart city,” said Denis Coderre, Mayor of Montréal.

“AURA offers a daring bridge between our heritage and our future. The Montreal 375th celebrations offer the ideal pretext to revisit this architectural symbol. It is an exceptional showcase of our city’s vitality. This unique experience is the work of our local creatives,” added Mr. Gilbert Rozon, Commissioner for Celebrations of Montreal’s 375th anniversary.

Woolf+Lapin Partners with Crawford Talents And Opens Berlin Office

Following the 2017 Berlinale, Woolf+Lapin has partnered with Berlin’s Crawford Talents.

A Berlin presence not only gives Woolf+Lapin new insights on the European market and access to fresh talent as well as partners, but it also strategically positions our consolidated talent pool on the international film scene.

It also offers us vibrant cultural hubs and meeting points in Europe and Northern America.

Berlin’s ongoing cultural explosion and Germany’s new funding programs are especially attractive. But most of all it was the great potential we saw in partnering with Caprice Crawford who will no doubt help to bolster our long-standing culture of taste and artist first philosophy.

“Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world like a colossus. We petty men walk under his legs… to find ourselves dishonorable graves. The fault lies not in our stars… but in ourselves.”
– W.S. Julius Caesar.

When a massive alien creature suddenly appears in LA, experts attempt to discern its motivations in this stylish sci-fi short from Brent Bonacorso. “Part faux documentary, part lyrical tone poem, director Brent Bonacorso’s THE NARROW WORLD is a sci-fi short for a smart discerning audience,” says Ivan Kander.

Prayer 9

Your subconscious is not an intimate possession anymore… Meet Prayer 9, a proof of concept written & directed by Pierre MICHEL-ESTIVAL.

Prayer 9 is a mysterious and operatic project that succeeds as a stand-alone narrative but also serves as a feature film or TV proof of concept, a glimpse of a larger story set in the near future where reality is obsolete.

Go beyond the pixels and witness our hero’s leap of faith. Watch him galvanize thousands into committing a shocking decision in order to experience the taste of God.

Will Prayer 9 Rise or Die?

Shooting complex stunts in both Paris and the United States, the short film was brought to life through the support of prestigious production and visual effects companies around the world.
