The director Céline Tricart has made several short movies, two of them in stereoscopic 3D: 'Reminiscence' (2008) and ‘Inner Fire’ (2010), both received awards in international festivals. During the last three years she has worked as a stereographer, notably for the first french 3D stereoscopic movie ‘Behind The Walls’ by J. Lacombe and P. Sid, (film set for release June 2011). She has thus had the opportunity to develop and perfect 3D direction.
