Rose & Violet - backgrounds
The story: Rose and Violet are teenagers unlike any other: conjoined twins, sharing one arm. Their strange physical bond makes them extraordinary acrobats. Just when their career at Circus Igor is about to take off a new recruit arrives at Circus Igor: Hector, the world's strongest man. Things between Rose and Violet get complicated …
ROSE & VIOLET was co-written and co-directed with the amazing Luc Otter. Might be the first film co-production ever between gigantic Canada and tiny Luxembourg.
The technique we used is a mix of digital collage and just plain old-fashioned bricolage.
