Long Ma (Chinese: 龙马) was a fabled winged horse with dragon scales in Chinese mythology.

Long Ma is a horse dragon created in 2014 by La Compagnie La Machine (Nantes, France) as a gift to Beijing to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China.

Long Ma was presented for the first time in Nantes the august 14th 2015 during Le Voyage à Nantes. I filmed it the august 20th 2015 with a beautiful sunset.

I loved to shoot this giant horse dragon with amazing sunlights. It was also the first time I used my new Canon 100-400 mm, I definitely love it, the image quality is awesome!

I edited this film on a music which inspires me a lot (Apparat – PV) to give a special atmosphere to this short film.

I produced the third episode of my webserie « Sur les routes de l’écume » (On the foam’s roads) with Surfing L.A.

During the weekend of march 7 & 8th 2015 I went on the coast to shoot because lights were beautiful.

I filmed two sessions : the first on the spot of Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie and the second on the spot of Tanchet (Les Sables d’Olonne). The first session in Saint-Gilles was amazing, the sunset was perfect and the waves very clean (no wind). The second sunset session in Tanchet was good too, but lights were not the same.

It’s funny to see that, exactly one year ago (march 8th 2014), I filmed the same type of sunset session in Brétignolles, and I produced a film called « Golden Lights » : I’m thinking about making this type of film the march 8th of each year ;)

« Spring Feelings » refers to the beginning of spring in France. I published this new film the day of spring in France.

The music I chose for this film inspired me a lot. It was a pleasure to edit this third episode on this music. Check it out!

Golden Lights is my last video project about lights and surfing.

I had the chance to capture beautiful lights on one of my favourite surf spot (Brétignolles, France). There were good waves and a lot of surfers. The conditions were perfect. I wanted to represent this moment with a music which inspired me.

Golden Lights was shared on Spotsurf !
