“In all likelihood, investors are ready to fix profits, because there are no further reasons to continue impetuous purchases. There is no reason for a powerful rollback, therefore, it is now the best option to partially fix the positive and wait for further developments, “says Anna Bodrova, senior analyst at IAC Alpari.

At the same time, support for the global market today was provided by the decision of the Bank of Japan to extend the business support program in the context of a pandemic until the end of March 2022. “The information supported the forecasts of the preservation of the economic base in the region of East and Southeast Asia, which forms investment demand, despite the increased medium-term risks of a cooling of the American stock market as part of the FRS announced yesterday that it began discussing a possible reduction in the asset repurchase program,” said an analyst with the investment company Freedom Finance »Alexander Osin.

“Alterify” | A Stock Footage Sci-fi Short Film Written & Directed by Julien Surdeau

Julien Surdeau, also known as Paris-based artist Thirsty Bstrd, converted being stuck at home into a creative journey of making a short film at home, alone. The result is a 3-minutes singular short film made of stock footage that condenses a twisty sci-fi plot and a traveling love story in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

See the movie here : View

“The starting point was : What if I told a story taking place around the world while I’m stuck at  home?“ Julien Surdeau says. “It’s been years since I wanted to shoot a proper short film. The CO VID-19 pandemic really stomped out my fire. Especially since most of my ideas were taking place  in the UK or in the US. I realized that if I wanted to make it happen anyway, I had to do it by myself,  at home.“ 

“That frustration is actually at the origin of the plot. We all spent a complicated time with the CO VID-19 pandemic, so I thought “what if I could instead remember last year as the best time of my  life?““ adds Julien Surdeau. “I worked on a script that would condense a modern sci-fi plot (with a  twist), a love story, some of my movies influence, my state of mind regarding the pandemic… all  compacted in a 3 minutes short film.“ 

“The use of stock footage was the natural choice as I wanted to tell a big story without being able  to step outside. I had recently taken a look at stock footage videos online and was surprised by  the quality of what I found. I had put aside a few shots that caught my attention, thinking it would  be a great challenge to try to build a story around stock footage someday.“ 

“I spent days watching stock footage videos, working on building a narrative consistency. I was editing and writing at the same time. I used computer-generated voices to punctuate the edit so  I could rewrite all the time and get an idea of the final cadence. At this stage, the story was still evolving depending on my findings,“ develops Julien. “Weeks later, once I was satisfied with the result, I got the voices recorded by US voice artists I cast online, with whom I was able to work remotely. And voila!“
