Le point de départ

Paris Festival

The incentive for the FFAP to organize regional competitions echoes in the spirit of Alexandre Laigneau and Vincent Angel. And why not in Ile-de-France & nbsp; This is how the two friends phosphor and imagine an event including a regional competition, but also conferences, galas, etc. The idea was born.

Happy coincidence, the city of Ablis has a new cultural space (Etincelles), looking for a show to start the activity. Following several meetings with the mayor, Alexandre and Vincent propose a complete project (and not just a magic show). The response of the town hall is positive and The Heir of Illusion can be born!

The circle of motivated people is growing, and the Magic Circle of Seine et Marne (CMS) decides at the first request to support the festival and in particular to manage the regional competition.

The winner of the 2018 edition

François Pierce – Golden Heir

Originally from Grenoble, François joined the capital in the year of his majority to join a film school, the Conservatoire Libre Du Cinéma Français, to study director and script.

Released among the majors of his promo, he created with his companion forever a mini-series entitled “Nothing – The series”, a kind of real cartoon, ubiquitous and crazy.

He won a job at Lido de Paris alongside Jérôme Murat. After 7 years spent in this mythical place, he decided to take off by embarking on his own adventure. He created “Puppet’s Tale”.

Autodidact and touch to everything, François is interested in many areas and not only in artistic circles.

As you can see, François Pierce is a talented artist with many facets.
