Falling Down

Does our modern world reach its limits ? What if NYC, world capital, stopped living and became a ghost city ? What if our daily lives were reduced to memories printed on old pictures? A disturbing observation of our society’s downward spiral and its consequences on our world.

Represented by RSA Films (Ridley Scott Creative Group), French filmmakers and brothers Swann and Yoann Chesnel work professionally in art, special effects, graphic design and communication. After graduating from ArtFX school, Swann worked on animated films including Despicable Me 3, Secret Life of Pets, and Sing. Yoann focused on visual communication, becoming the Creative Director of a Parisian agency. Graphically obsessed, the duo’s experience in art direction, VFX, and design enables them to explore mixed media techniques to develop cinematic, emotional, and unique stories. In 2020, Swan and Yoann launched Thanksbro Studio to create visual content for brands and artists. Their first short film ‘Falling Down’, was made during lockdown using old travel pictures for inspiration and gained the brothers their first Vimeo Staff Pick, followed by numerous nominations from film festivals all over the world.
