Good evening. It doesn't look like, but it's a French film. Sorry about the accent. I'm the producer of the film, so I have to thank the three thousand non-official sponsors that appeared in the film. And I have to assure them that no logos were harmed during the making of the project.
This award has to be shared with the incredible people who made the film, all the team, and especially the three directors that are with us in the theater tonight: François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain. You can applaud them, the directors. Thanks for them. They have been working for a very, very long time on this film. It took, like, six years to make this sixteen minutes, so I hope to come back here with a long feature film in about thirty-six years. Thank you very much. Bon soir.
