The street artist George lures Ksenia into his magic world of art illusions.Their steps turn into dancing tapsgestures into splashes of paint, their action into art and art into the creation of an own reality.

PARIS YOU GOT ME is an award winning shortfilm about artistic empowerment

starring
KSENIA PARKHATSKAYA LIAM SCULLION

written and directed by
JULIE BOEHM

produced by
ALEKSANDRA TODOROVIC ANN-KATRIN BOBERG

Movie Poster Cubistic Scene

On her daily way home the protagonist Ksenia accidentally comes across the street-painter George.
Unimpressed by his illusionistic work – showing a deep abyss – Ksenia starts challenging the illusion by throwing a stone on the painted ground.

Drawing her closer with a magic trick, George makes her reach the edge of the painting. Ksenia stumbles and falls – right into the abyss – which turns real in that very moment.

Seconds later the two find themselves in a parallel cosmos.

Their steps turn into dancing taps, gestures into splashes of paint, their action into art and art into the creation of an own reality.

The story about the phantastic firework of the daydreamers and the consequences in our reality.

Concept of the Film

It is also the diploma of our production designer Marian – here you can see him buiding up the set for 3 weeks

And the rooftop scene  is also the Baby of our VFX Supervisor Marc Zimmermann he turned the green studio into the wide rooftopworld  of  an industrial Paris setting.

This was also the most ambitious scene concerning the part of tracking, setextension 

For this part we also  had to practise the choreography of camera with the dancers –

It is a 1 min plansequence without any cut. Where everything needed to be perfect and right in time 

ShootingDay Rooftop Scene
This was the most ambitious Filmset as our production designer Marian Korenika had to built up the rooftop set in 3 weeks

Preproduction Rooftop Scene
Concepting the Rooftop Scene with the team (DoP: Dominik Moos // Production Designer: Marian Korenika // Director Julie Boehm // VFX Supervisor: Marc Zimmermann). We wanted to built a scene of an industrial Paris setting between the two Wold Wars.

Here are some photos of our shooting day here at the Bärenwiese
As there was no shop next to the park we had to combine it with a shop in downtown of Ludwigsburg

It was a quite sunny day– so there were lot of shadows and reflections on the illusion painting too – so I had to do some retouching afterwards to keep the illusion effect    

For the preproduction I did a lot of iterations planning the illusion painting . It is an ANAMORPH PAINTING what means, you can only see the dangerous abyss / the artwork from the right positon.
A Symbol for the misunderstood artist.  

This is in Berlin – with my art colleague Enrico Lein where we painted the illusion painting

Concepts – this epoques starts with a dark hallway, where the protagonists communicate by tapping on the floor. The sound waves deconstruct the room.

The intro shot is full CG Environemenet and was created by VFX Artist Aleksej Skrypnik. The rest of the cubism was life action filming in the set of our production designer in the albrecht ade studio

There is also a mattepainting behind Ksenia to enlarge the scene.

In the epoque of the cubism it is all about deconstruction: There is also a dance battle in the end with a follow spot (moving lights).

Music and Sound Postproduction

Score

The film was already shot with pre-produced music so the dancers had a better feel and also the proper tempo for each specific scene.
Later during winter 2017/2018 the demos were replaced with the final score of our film musician MARIUS KIRSTEN.
The recording sessions took place in Budapest (Budapest Scoring Orchestra), Switzerland (accordion) and Los Angeles, where we were lucky to get Johnny Britt, who played the trumpet in LaLaLand, too.
The score was also mixed in Los Angeles by Wolfgang Aichholz.

It was very tough production including a crowdfunding campaign.
After the shooting we were very grateful to win the Caligari Production Price.
So finally we could afford a real music orchester.

One of the hightest awards for our film was winning the “Best Score in a Shortfilm” for Marius Kirsten at the “Deutscher Filmmusikpreis” in 2019

EN “Paris you got me” by Julie Böhm, pays homage to fantasy in its grandiose colorfulness. Because here the protagonist dives into the imagery of a street painter – and dances in the episode through magical Mary Poppins worlds and a breathtaking art universe.

DE “Paris you got me” von Julie Böhm wiederum huldigt in seiner grandiosen Farbigkeit der Fantasie. Denn hier taucht die Protagonistin in die Bildwelten eines Straßenmalers ein – und tanzt sich in der Folge durch zauberhafte Mary-Poppins-Welten und ein atemberaubendes Kunstuniversum. (Anja Witzke)

Oxford Film Festival review

Thank you Simon Dillon Books for the nice review!

Paris You Got Me
– This a delightful variation on a couple of memorable set pieces from Mary Poppins (the chalk paintings and the chimney sweeps) is also a unique and charming musical romance in its own right. Boasting fine chemistry and dancing from leads Ksenia Parkhatskaya and Liam Michael Scullion, with technically assured direction from Julie Boehm, along with some vivid animation, it’s a joy to watch. There is even a slightly surreal German Expressionist sequence near the finale, which for a moment made me wonder if the film was about to veer into Dr Caligari territory.

Spectacular! Awesome presentation, bravo! The film “Paris You Got Me” struck all the musicals I watched. I was taken by very good actors Ksenia Parkhatskaya and Liam Scullion. I am proud of their talent for dancing with interpretive dance. Moreover the concept of the whole movie is unmatched, engaging, and creative. I was very fascinated by the use of 3D art and special effects. This is a movie that can be compared to Walt Disney shows. I am sure of this extraordinary movie created by director Julie Boehm.


Paris Art And Movie Awards: “Best Dance Short” – “Best Director”

“Paris You Got Me is visually and artistically amazing. It’s a living dream, a visual feast, an emotional ride, full of joy and so colorful. A lovely mix of modern and vintage aesthetics all in an dreamy movie.”

HIGHLIGHT : It is he first time a student film also is listed for best Director. It is also the first time a dance film is nominated for any other best category. The team of Paris You Got Me is making history at the PAMA Festival !

Punto Di Vista: “Best Editing” – “Young Choice Award”

Dream and fantasy come back to life. The assembly, well done, supported by a sought after photograph, helps to merge the mixture of techniques, winking in the rain, to Gene Kelly.
