Vintage aesthetics, rock’n'roll, and a dash of humor are the trademarks of Julien Hallard’s short films. He started directing in NYC when he decided to film his friends and increasingly became drawn to the pure form of independent filmmaking. When looking for the perfect DVD cover for his short film Vinyl, he asked his friend, Parisian artist Artus de Lavilléon, to draw the scenery. When you meet Artus, you realize his style is a reflection of his warm personality, than any certain formal style. While working for commercial brands, Artus has managed to create his own niche and been given carte blanche for his artistic work. With his m.o. of "art posthume," he is constantly opening new doors for seeing art without courting celebrity.
