Philippe Dufour 70th Birthday Celebration Film
by Ian Skellern
In 2005, I had the pleasure of working with a very talented young team at a British film production company called Animal Monday on a short documentary film called Time Piece featuring Philippe Dufour and Vianney Halter.
In April 2018 I had the honor of receiving an invitation from Mrs. Elisabeth Dufour to the 70th birthday party she was organizing for Philippe, and I immediately thought:
a. Hallelujah! b. What will I wear?
c. I wonder if we could get the (Animal Monday) band back together and make a nice film?
And, incredibly, thanks to the amazing efforts of a group of very talented people led by producer/director Kat Mansoor, we made a film.
Welcome to the party.
This film was made possible thanks to an absolutely sensational team, including:
Mrs. Elisabeth Dufour: event organizer (for the leap of faith)
Kat Mansoor: director
Robin Fox: cinematographer
Yvon Labarthe/Flying Focus: drone pilot/Steadicam
Ana Lowry/Flying Focus: drone camera operator
Bruce Wuilloud/Sound Bloc: sound
Adam Lavis/Animal Monday: editing
Paul Beroud/Luxan: lighting
Romain Schaer/Luxan: lighting/camera assistant
Claude Michot/Event: Eventente
Alice Hattrick: admin
Hôtel de la Truite: film crew catering
