HIS NAME IS JAC, HE IS DIRECTOR AND HE IS NOT LIKE YOU.
During the hard winter of 1976, the 29th of january, the stars were perfectly alined in the sky,
A burning comete was crossing nearby the moon, sending to earth a magic rain of sands from outher space,
and during this incredible phenomenom, he was born .

Raised in a little city of the old continent, he grew up under the love of his parents, eating portuguese food and
watching Go Nagai’s anime shows on tv.
His first words were « Rocket Punch », « clockwork orange », « ovostable » and « i like salted cod ».

His first friends whom he met at the nursery school, were normal kids from planet earth, and he soon decided to use
them to serve his plan.
Because, yes, he had a plan.

In the basement of his parents house, he started to build his own giant killing robot in order to invade this world.
But after a few tries, he realized that he knew nothing about how to build giant killing robots, and that paperboard is not hard
enough to do so .

So he thought and said to hiself, « well i’d rather use tv and cinema to invade earth, because the power of images
is very very powerful. »
He was 5 years old .
He continued in school to learn about how people live here, and he finally went to the « ecole des beaux-arts » where
he learned to express
his chaotik and apocalyptik visions on paper, on paintings and of course on screens.

In the war he was starting, the general’s names were, carpenter, coppola, kubrick, myazaki, otomo, hitchcock, gilliam,
Godard, woo, and a lot more, so he watched all their battles to learn how to use this massive weapon.
He then started making short movies to upgrade my skills, and after a few years, he started working on tv, as an
editor and a director.

After that, he started to make documentary movies so i could still train my skills and learn about people.
He then meet JOHAN who was a different boy two.
After fighting during 7 years with applepies throwings and plastic guns, they finally made peace, giving theyr favorite
toys to each other.

They then start working together.

The subjects were always focused on street culture, like graffitis and breakdance, even going to do the «
ouverture » of the « biennale de la dance » in lyon with his videos.

They made a documentary movie about the pockemon, that wasn't as they first thougt some collectable monsters,
but worlwide champion breakdancers.

Then they discover a little group of artists, making vinyl toys all around the world in order to invade earth ;
as he did when he was a child in his parent’s basement, building a robot.
So they decided to make a movie about them named VINYL & CO. and to discover the secret behind those toys,

After that he decided to shoot music videos for the soon very famous artist TITO MENDOZA and for another ones.

and soon his plan
will be achieved and he will be able, using cinema, to finally rule this world.
