Aurélien Mathieu is a movie maker, screenwriter and photograph based in Paris, France.

His love for LEGO started during his childhood when he was recreating movie scenes he like with his minifigs.

Soon, came the idea to make movie stills as realistic as possible with real effects : live fire, live explosions and fake backlights. He does not hesitate to use real elements such as lichen, soil, water or branches. His motto : do everything "in camera" and avoid as much as possible computer enhancements.

Aurélien is borrowing cinema and other arts technics to build the sets and scuplt the light. He is working on toy photography as Shobrick alias.

 

Aurélien Mathieu est réalisateur et scénariste à Paris.

Sa passion pour les LEGO est née dès l’enfance où son attirance pour le cinéma le pousse à réinterpréter des scènes de films avec ses mini figurines.

Bientôt, lui vient l’envie de créer des images au réalisme saisissant : feux, explosions miniatures et faux contre-jours. Il n’hésite pas à incorporer des éléments naturels : terre, mousse, lichen, eau, etc. Son leitmotiv : réaliser tous ses effets « in camera » et éviter le plus possible les retouches sur logiciel.

Aurélien emprunte les techniques du cinéma et d’autres arts pour construire ses décors et sculpter la lumière. Il officie sous le pseudo Shobrick.

Since the day I joined Flickr, I have watched Shobricks photostream like a hawk, he has given me inspiration in all aspects of customization but the most important...... is he taught me to do what I want, and go with my ideas, not to conform to what everyone else is doing. Shobrick is a 1 of a kind customizer and 1 hell of a photographer if you ask me!
