Marc Caro was born on April 2, 1956 in Paris, France. He is a director and writer, known for Delicatessen (1991), La cité des enfants perdus (1995) and Alien, la résurrection (1997).
Under the guidance of Marc Caro, and their teachers, 15 students in the “Architecture en Représentation” Master’s option designed and created the 360 ° set for the first episode of Marc Caro’s web series Fly Me To The Moon. During the Festival Premiers Plans in Angers, the public was invited to visit the set and discover the manufacture. More informations here.
As a director of production, I worked for the production company Les Docs Du Nord who gave me the responsability to manage the budget and deal with all the service providers a month before shooting.
I was also the director’s assistant, working hand in hand with the VR advisor Pierre Friquet. I built the VR team for the shooting: Michael Kolchesky as the 360 camera operator, Charles-Henri Marraud des Grottes as the DIT, Geoffrey Durcak as the sound engenieer and Marina Gandey as the make up artist. Marc Caro hired Jean Poisson as a DOP. It was a very small team as Marc Wanted to.
Fly Me To The Moon Stars Jackie Berroyer, Philippe Vieux and Aurélia Poirrier.
This was the first 360° set made for a virtual reality piece that I saw, and an impressive work done by the DOP to work only with light scattering in the set.
It was a very intensive but an amazing experience! Now the film is in post production.
