The context: Produced in the region of Montpellier in January 2016, this audiovisual work combines the story of 5 young adults who are very different, but all prey to personal issues.
The characters: Here are the 5 main characters:
1° Social downgrading
Thomas represents the fight against social downgrading through his commitment to boxing.
2° Sentimental break-up
Madeleine illustrates the courage and perseveration necessary for personal reconstruction after a break-up.
Thomas is scared of the idea of talking to the woman he likes so much but eventually he takes the plunge in order to taste her lips.
4° The handicap, the illness
Mathilde shows the battle against the handicap and the physical wounds in order to use her legs again.
5° Stage fright, pressure
Maxence embodies the businessman, the man of authority, who overcomes stage fright and goes beyond the pressures inherent to his life of a charismatic leader.
The comments and the feedback given by the spectators of the work: The work in itself is a known story. Not invented. The producer invested everything in accuracy. The shots are thorough, the sequence chains clean, the original musical composition poignant and the voice-over transcendent. The story crescendos and this makes the victory ever more beautiful. The synchronization of the shots with the music and the voice offer a result full of emotions and precision.
The creator: Yannis Mouhoun is a 23-year-old French entrepreneur and artist from Lyon, France. Currently at the head of MC, European organization which edits and produces editorial projects on the web, he has a solid experience in the fields of creative writing, musical composition, graphic conception and video production. “The Fighters” is the first opus of a new original production series he wishes to develop.
The agency: “The Fighters” is Yannis Mouhoun’s first production in the framework of his agency, Harvey Winston. It’s a creative agency linked to a studio. Unlike traditional production corporations, HW is supported by self-taught and polyvalent artists. Its approach is firmly transdisciplinary and confers to its creative process a quite particular harmony. HW produces original contents while focusing on intransigence and aestheticism.
The last word: “We believe that the stories that make sense, when transposed skillfully, produce an impact that resists the ordeal of time.”
