Short Film: L'Odyssée de Cartier

Last week I was invited to the press premiere of Cartier's short film: L'Odyssée de Cartier. I could hardly contain my excitement after receiving the press package with screenshots because it looked so so so so promising. The film has been launched now and you can view it on Youtube here:




Couple stills from the opening scene:




Beautiful isn't it? It's filled with so much fantasy and beauty you can't possibly feel disappointed because it's just so absolutely breathtaking beyond words. Also helps that the panther (a real one), is so so good looking.

We received a book on the project after the screening, in which each scene was explained, with its story and significance in the history of Cartier.





Each highlight had its own envelope and in it, an introduction, old photos, drawings, pamphlets, posters -- so exquisite you feel like you have a small piece of the Cartier archives with you. It's a super sweet touch.




This book is filled with so much awesome content I love it to bits. T_T

In closing, thank you Cartier for inviting me and sharing with us this beautiful cinematic work of art.

Theatres in Singapore will start showing this 3.5min short film prior to some movies at Cathay cinemas, Shaw Lido, and Golden Village Vivo. Hope you guys will enjoy seeing it on the large screen too~
