Papy3D, it’s over -- news

May 14, 2024


After 18 years of good and loyal service, Papy3D decided to stop its activity and leave. Nothing serious, just the right time for it.

During all these years, we produced twenty-three films, great experiences, each special, and marked by meetings with hundreds of talented and involved people. We will be grateful to all of them from what they have brought to our productions as to ourselves and to all those who will read these lines, thank you again for having enriched our films with your talents.

Thank you to all those who supported us with a consistency that we must underline: the financial organizations, in particular the CNC (thank you the team), Pictanovo and the Hauts de France region (thank you, Jérôme, Olivier), the Procirep and Angoa (thank you, Séverine), and the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes and Brittany regions, as well as the city of Paris; television channels that continue to broadcast and finance short films: Arte (thank you, Hélène), France 3 (thank you, Aurélie) and Canal + (thank you, Brigitte), Moviestar (thank you, Guadalupe); Those who against all odds continue to broadcast short film: the short film agency (thank you Nathalie, Karim, Florence), the Rencontres Audiovisuelles, Mèche Courte, Vimeo as well as all these festivals which have so often chosen to show our Films, with a particular thought for Annecy, Clermont, Grenoble, Lille, Rennes (for several of them) for France, Leeds, Miami, Stuttgart, Mecal, Anima, Animest, Brooklyn, Palm Springs, Rhode-Island, Uppsala and many others all over the world.

And above all, thank you to the directors who trusted us and had the courage to entrust their personal project to our small team.

The world continues to turn, our last two films will have a good career thanks to Les Astronautes and JPL films which were kind enough to take over, thank you again.

Thank you all, it was nice

Kaminhu, the first professionnal short film of Marie Vieillevie, will start its hopefully long and rich career with a selection in competition in the Annecy Festival !

Coproduced by les Astronautes, supported by the CNC, the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region, Pictanovo and the Hauts de France region, the Procirep and the Angoa, purchased by France 3, it has been made during 4 years between Capo Verde, Portugal, Paris, Valence and Hellemmes, in the Astronautes and Train-Train studios. The music was written and sung by the genius capverdian artist Tcheka, who also recorded one of the main voices and has worked with Marie on the dialogs, in the Santiago Island dialect.
