Spectaculaires, Allumeurs d’Images

Created in 1987, Spectaculaires, Allumeurs d’images is a Breton company with a "company" spirit. Its know-how, which combines craftsmanship, art and cutting-edge technology, stages historical, urban, natural and industrial heritage through dynamic and monumental lighting displays.

At a time when video mapping is booming, Spectaculaires has positioned itself with a very active research and development strategy. For this living art of monumental dimensions, it has designed and developed its own technological devices for multi-machine video projection and spatialization.

M2.Creative

M2.Creative is a digital arts studio, oriented towards audiovisual production, specialized in 2D/3D mapping-video design and scenographic and lighting installations.

"Our multidisciplinary studio is a showcase for several forms of creations and know-how: graphic design, 3D animation, lighting design, sound design, scenario, scenography, carpentry, AV management. Our language is made of pixels and sound ambiences, 3D movements and writing. For us, mapping is the art of "dreaming another reality". Driven by the quest for meaning, we like to dialogue with the viewer.

Luminariste

Luminariste was founded by Benjamin Nesme, lighting and video designer after 15 years of experience in the service of live performance.

A graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Techniques du Théâtre, he composes light and video according to the space and the moments to tell a story. A second path leads him to a stained glass creation workshop, where he learns about the encounter between light and glass, the expression of colors, and the strength of contrasts. As a synthesis of these experiences, Benjamin founded Luminariste with the conviction that these skills can be transposed into the architectural and museographic fields.

Lumière de verre

Lumière de verre is a collective united by the passion of glass. Based on the tradition of stained glass, they study and develop the techniques of thermoforming and coloring. Between art and craft, Lumière de verre explores the properties of this material and adapts them to events, artistic creation, architecture and design.

Through glass, Lumière de verre also revisits the origins of photography and cinema to bring out their organic character in large format: the light projection is done through a simple lens complex that gives it a unique dimension. The collective is present in festivals and night parties, the illumination of urban or natural spaces, in a process of memory or spontaneity.

Gobelins, l'école de l'image

Created more than 50 years ago, Gobelins is the reference school in the Visual Arts. The school trains students in visual creation, from design to production of images in all their forms (still, animated, interactive, 3D), from 4.0 printing to Virtual Reality.

Following a partnership agreement between the City of Chartres and the school, some twenty students were inspired by the theme of theater to create 12 moving pictures.
