Shooting Stars I Cédric Delsaux


To create his "realistic science-fiction" images, Cédric Delsaux, photographer and visual designer, calls upon a variety of skills (assistant, 2D and 3D designers, 2D and 3D retouchers). Examining several pictures in the "Dark Lens" series, in which characters from the Star Wars universe inhabit urban and industrial landscapes, the film shows us the creative process underway. From the original shot in the dawn pallor of a neighbouring Parisian suburb, to the packing of a very large format print, just delivered.
