Paris you got me 
Short film

This film is a story about artistic empowerment. It set a street artist that lures a woman into his magic world of art illusions. Their steps turn into dancing taps, gestures into splashes of paint, their action into art and art into the creation of an own reality... It's an artistic dance about the realization of your dreams, and all of this, in Paris!
