Director Statement

A good design can change the world, starting by the mindset of one human. As a designer my goal is always to work on project that are improving society, building bridges, empowering invisible and weak people, having an impact on the reality and alter it for the greater good.
For the "Tremors" project, the request of the museum was to create an animation movie to introduce children to seismology.
I wanted to go further, and create a tale that could convene the rich graphic patrimony of the Amazigh culture, and explain geology in a form of a like traditional tale, told to children before sleeping for centuries, aside a camp fire, in the middle of the mountains, under a sky full of stars. It's the reason I wanted also the film to be recorded in Tifinagh/Tachlhit as original soundtrack and the music to be composed and played by an amazigh artist born and raised in Agadir, Abdellah Bennabbou. There is also a little surprise during the final credit, that will bring back emotional memories to all morrocans.
