Solace is a non-narrative piece that captures fragments in the daily lives of a group of East London teenagers, exploring friendship, mortality and human interaction. Directed in a non-conventional style, Solace blurs the line between fiction, documentary and art.

850 METERS is an "after hours" project, an animated comedy short currently in production, produced by THURISTAR and Lunanime, with the support of the VAF.
The film tells the QUEST of a FAME-AND-FORTUNE-hungry, wannabe hero, in a not-so-fairy tale!
850 METERS will be sent to festivals in 2012. As we move forward with the production of the short, THURISTAR is also producing a ‘making-of’ of the film. The idea is to follow the work of our small team ‘behind the scenes’, through short episodes, each of them featuring a different production step.
Mostly Belgian, but also French, American, Norwegian, Danish and from Luxemburg, the 850 METERS team is working between London, Paris, Valence, Copenhagen, Albuquerque, Kortrijk and Ghent, for a few months of ‘after hours’ production.
