Salomé Chatelain is one of the winners of the Post-graduate grants 2021 in partnership with la Poudrière. She will stay at Ciclic Animation for a month in residency to work on the development of her project Dans le mille.
After a bachelor’s degree in illustration and animation in Belgium, Salomé Chatelain joined the Ecole de la Poudrière and graduated as an animation director in 2021.
This first project tells about the relationship between communication and sexual satisfaction, more specifically on the female side. The intention of the short film is to talk about the complexity of communicating and affirming one’s pleasure for a woman, despite the current discourses of emancipation.
This project has received a writing grant by Ciclic Centre-Val de Loire and a residence programme financed by Ciclic Centre-Val de Loire in partnership with La Poudrière. Director, Salomé Chatelain, will be in residence from September 15th to October 14th.
