Kevin MEYER- Flatland is Magic- VFLAD from Valentin Flad on Vimeo.

It looks like a lot of effort went into this video.Valentin Fields breaks it down for you:

“Here we go !
This summer, I met Kevin at his GF’s home in Avignon, south of France. We planned to make this edit few months ago, following Joris Bretagnolles’s video for his sponsor. This August month was the perfect moment in the year to make it real, since it was sooo sunny and hot, perhaps a little bit too… But it’s an other story, which I will not explain here.
About six month ago, Kevin called me to know if we could work together. Of course it was a big yes for me to do new things, and it’s allways a pleasure to make videos. As I said it earlier, we filmed it in Avignon. But I didn’t tell you how long it was, and how difficult. So let’s do it ! We had lot of pressure, ’cause time was not our friend. I’m right talking about the clock, who makes *tic toc tic toc*. We only had two complete days to film, and that was in our heads the whole time. Then, as I said it upper, the other probleme was the weather, but not the rain. Where we were, they was sooooo hot, around 35-40 degrees in sun. I don’t really know how Kevin rode his bike, since I, (just) by holding the camera, was soaked of sweat.
So we filmed from 8:30 am to 11 am (yeah, you’re right, we slept 4 hours per night…) and from 5 pm to 9 pm. During the hot period, we had our “chill period”, which was not very chill. In fact, we worked on the scenario, which I will talk you yet.
The scenario was also, in my opinion, a “probleme”, but very very very little one. When he wrote it, I red it first but didn’t understand all he wrote. For me, it was too difficult to understand, firstelly, and to make for me, as well. So we reworked it so that he is easyer and cooler.
So, here I wrote the story of this edit, and I hope when you read this, you’re not sleeping… (zZzZzzZz…)
I hope you’ll enjoy it, because we made it with heart and spent lot of time to make it real (yeah this is real: I tryed to upload it to Vimeo 7 times before it works…) !”
