HOW ISABELLE FAUVEL CHANGED MY LIFE
A testimony by Stéphane C., professional script writer, Paris :
« In Spring 99, a well-wishing friend (God bless him) advised me to contact Initiative Film, a brand new company directed by the charismatic Isabelle Fauvel, specialised in the developing of audiovisual projects.
More than one thankful client testified that they were efficient and highly qualified. As far as I was concerned, I was having professional troubles. As an autodidact, I had written a sci-fi saga of 46 episodes of 90 minutes each, hoping, as cracy as it can be, to seduce a big production company.
… But, after a few fruitless trials, the film industry wonderland seemed unreachable to me !
Some days later, I presented myself in the office of Initiative Film, Isabelle Fauvel received me in person. I can not, alas, tell you what we discussed about because of legal reasons…
However, only 24 hours after this first meeting, I met a Parisian producer she introduced to me. It was the first time I met a producer instead of getting some standard letter telling my script would not fit.
This professional man spoke to me frankly and explained why my project had no chance to see the light in such a context. But, he found qualities in the writing and promised he would give me a try if the opportunity arose.
my producer was looking for script writers for an animated film : after a brief casting, I had my first author contract. I was so proud, but it was just the beginning : months later, another contract, and, this time, for a feature film !
I took the charge of it brilliantly and the film was a great success all around the world… as if by magic !
… As my writing improved, I started to get connections with professionals of this sphere. Through contact with those personnalities, sometimes picturesque, always brilliant, I increased my acknowledgement of the script-writing, a fantastic and remunerative task.
I do not have enough time to evoke a long road punctuated by successes in the strict respect of the rule !
But these are facts : after years of practical work-outs and thanks to Isabelle Fauvel’s secret powers and to her team, I am, nowadays, a sensei in the art of scriptwriting. I took part in many projects and encountered international success.
