Florian Babikian, Vincent Bayoux, Victor Caire, Théophile Dufresne, Gabriel Grapperon and Lucas Navarro are all passionate about making films and especially animal wildlife. At MOPA School (previously known as Supinfocom) the six students found a way to learn how to create good stories and captivating images. Once they became friends in the early days, they never stopped working together and developed a great chemistry, where each of them could increase their personal skills in many fields, from script to animation. Garden Party is their graduation film and a natural way to transition from student years to a professional career. Starting in 2015, they worked passionately for 9 months and finally released GARDEN PARTY in June 2016. The film screened at numerous film festivals worldwide picking up more than 25 awards on the way. Vincent is now working as Rigging TD at Mikros image, mostly on animated features. Florian, Victor, Théo, Gabriel and Lucas created a collective of directors known as ILLOGIC, directing short films and TV commercials for WIZZ design.
