La Course Destination Monde was a flagship television program of the French Canadian Broadcasting Corporation from 1988 to 1999 and inspired a whole generation.
Chosen after a long selection process, the candidates traveled alone around the world for six months and had a week to make a four minutes film and send it. This included: traveling, finding a subject and contact people, organize and shoot the film, write the editing script and travel to the next Fedex office to send the material to Montréal.
I shot 20 short films in over 15 countries and eventually finished second in the race with three individual awards: a six-month internship as a film director at the social affairs program Le Point (Société Radio-Canada); the award for “Best Comment”; the award for “Best Film dealing with an economical issue in a developing country”.
A book created during my travels made of notes, photos, found objects, drawings, storyboards and various written exchanges.See book
