I am delighted to welcome you to this realm, where we have had the privilege of creating a short film that invites you into a magical world of new realities: the Cartier Magicien universe.

Since the begining of this journey I have been dedicated to pushing the boundaries of visual storytelling, and the Cartier Magicien project represents the culmination of many creations made over the past few years. Through a combination of different techniques and my own universes, a new piece has been born that invites viewers on an enchanting journey through the captivating and unique vision of Cartier watchmaking.

From the surreal to the sublime, each frame of the film is a testament to the power of digital art to evoke sensations, ignite the imagination, and transport audiences into new realms. With a focus on beauty and a talented team committed to creating something unique and distinct, we have crafted a piece that showcases Cartier’s iconic collections and celebrates the art and ingenuity of digital storytelling.

Welcome to the Cartier Magicien universe, where digital art reigns supreme and the possibilities are endless.
