Emma & Marc
In 2007, South African Marc Roels met Emma de Swaef in Belgium and their union sent sparks flying behind the camera! Their first short film « Oh Willy » won 26 international prizes… Recently their talent was rewarded with a selection at the Cannes director’s Fortnight for their second opus « Magnificent Cake ». Texture is at the heart of Emma and Marc’s work. She animates the inanimate while he captures this magic with a rare sense of poetry and dexterity… This talented artistic duo develops stories where humans, animals and real life settings are mixed with woven and stitched characters or with a Michelin Man made out of sugar cubes… Their work is exquisitely lit and filmed, transporting the viewer into dreamland.
