"So we should not do it as if it were preparing for something else. This should be true in your everyday life. To cook, or to fix some food, is not preparation, according to Dogen; it is practice. To cook is not just to prepare food for someone or for yourself; it is to express your sincerity. So when you cook you should express yourself in your activity in the kitchen. You should allow yourself plenty of time; you should work on it with nothing in your mind, and without expecting anything. You should just cook! That is also an expression of our sincerity, a part of our practice. It is necessary to sit in zazen, in this way, but sitting is not our only way. Whatever you do, it should be an expression of the same deep activity. We should appreciate what we are doing. There is no preparation for something else."

First animation test (from the future). Doodle on Procreate and animation on Adobe Character / AE / Premiere. If we can no longer shoot films, we'll draw them!

After two years of meditation, the book which helped me get to the next level. (Yup: I've become a f-ing beatnik.)
Not the animated feature film by Topor and Laloux (though it's the inspiration for the title and the opening music) but a podcast from Quebec which offers a sound montage of musics, dialogues and various excerpts on a particular theme. One monthly hour of trippy atmosphere to disconnect from it all. I started by this episode about dreams which got me hooked.
First festival as a film producer!
Veuillez Agréer, a short feature film by Jackie Berroyer produced last year with ChezFilms, will be screened at the Itinerances Film Festival during Jackie Berroyer's Carte Blanche. So let's meet up there between March 20th. and 29th. I'll try to go but I don't know when.
UPDATE: nope, coronavirus !.
