WRITER / DIRECTOR - ALEXANDRA PIC
“The Miracle of Life” is the first short film directed by the actress Alexandra PIC and the cinematographer Nicolas Beauchamp. After fifteen years in their respective carreers, they both head toward writing and directing.
Alexandra started in 1995 in a Jean Rollin’s movie. She plays Malice in “Sacatruc”, the French version of “Big Bag” (97-98). She hosts many shows like “Destination : séries” on Canal Jimmy. She performs on stage in Paris and appears in many short films. In 2005 she is part of the motion capture cast of “Skyland”, the animated television series (she is also the voice of Lena, the main female character). In 2008, she is the voice of Ally in the first animated serie featuring “the Famous Five”. Last year, she was Marilyn Monroe in the french play “INDIGO”, the first time Alexandra sings jazz on stage.
DIRECTOR / CINEMATOGRAPHER - NICOLAS BEAUCHAMP
As a camera assistant, during more than ten years Nicolas joins the shooting crews of great movies directed by Claude Lelouch, Bertrand Blier and Etienne Chatiliez. Since 2007 he works as a director of photography, splitting time between shooting and writing. In March 2010, he wins the CNC subsidy for innovation for a TV drama he wrote “When we were dockers” (4 x 120'). The same year, he is also the second unit camera operator on “The Princess of Montpensier” directed by Bertrand Tavernier and selected at the Cannes Film Festival (Official selection). Last summer he is also camera operator on the successful french TV serie “Fais pas çi, fait pas ça”.
Nicolas and Alexandra are both finishing the script of the feature film “The Awakening Day” (on the same idea that “The miracle of life”) Their second short film “The Bubble and the Cosmonaut” is in pre-production (NEXUS FILMS).
