INTERVIEW FOR CANAL+

The TV show Mensomadaire on Canal + France asked me to do a 2 min interview to show before my shortfilm explaining a bit of the concept of Artificial Paradise,Inc.
There wasn't much time to do it so I've decided to create all the visuals live. Interview is in French but I've added English subtitles for all non-french speakers.
