SUMO "From his art scene beginnings, Sumo has sought after difference, always with a view to distancing himself from the beaten path and to constantly reinventing himself. Comparing himself with others has never been his main concern. When graffiti became very popular and its practice accessible to the masses, Sumo was already seeking to break away and express himself differently than by spraying cans onto walls. He turned to other media" SUMO fb page  Photo credits Art Work Circle

Jacques Molitor  European Filmmaker, #BRAVEYOUTHMentor on 7 May and his LETTER to the Braves "Don’t give up: people will always tell you why your project « won’t work »… yet nobody else but YOU has the complete vision of what you want to do. Sketch out a plan of where you want to be in 5 years and stick to it. Don’t get side-tracked by easy money opportunities, instead work on YOUR voice. However, DO listen to constructive criticism and show your projects to trusted people (!) in early stages. Expect harsh and honest responses instead of easy praise. Keep your intentions clear in the back of your head, but be very aware of how your vision works in the real world and adapt accordingly. Last advice : after a huge success (and I wish you the best), never think you’re better than the others, or that you’ve achieved everything. Stay HUMBLE"

Michel Tereba In my search for aesthetics I’m constantly looking for original and authentic stories to tell. Over the years I have gathered experience as a film director and as an actor. I have directed and played in comedies, dramas on TV and in cinema and music videos. I’ve furthermore directed documentaries and corporate films. By combining my experience and training with the Giles Foreman Center for Acting, I have developed a personal acting style. Alternating between directing and acting has given me a good understanding of my craft. As an actor, I enjoy being directed by other directors. It’s always enriching to see them at work and experience their unique take on the story.
