Wanting to mix their graffiti style together with CG animation, 2004 saw them make their award winning short film TRUE COLOR, awarded by numerous animation festivals worldwide (Monaco IMAGINA , SICAF Séoul, SIGGRAPH 2005, MUNDOS DIGITALES Spain, EMAGICIENS France, and so on) until it was picked up by top French film channel, Canal Plus. After the success of TRUE COLOR Pierre finished his course in the field of directing/animation from the world renowned School of Gobelins in Paris whilst Bertrand worked as an animator on a Luc Besson Production, also in Paris. Then they collaborated with Not To Scale production company, winning an international Pro Max award for Nickelodeon and since then they have gone on to direct commercials for Volvo, Adidas, Navman and Mars.

Volendo mescolare il loro stile da graffiti con la computer graphic animation, nel 2004 Pierre e Bertrand realizzano il loro pluripremiato cortometraggio TRUE COLOR, selezionato da numerosi festival d'animazione in tutto il mondo (IMAGINA a Monaco, il SICAF a Seoul, il SIGGRAPH 2005, Mundos Digitales in Spagna, EMAGICIENS in Francia, e così via) e quindi venduto a Canal plus. Dopo il successo di TRUE COLOR Pierre ha terminato i suoi studi in regia / animazione presso la famosa Scuola Gobelins a Parigi, mentre Bertrand ha lavorato come animatore su una produzione di Luc Besson, sempre a Parigi. In seguito hanno collaborato con la società di produzione Not To Scale vincendo un premio internazionale Pro Max per Nickelodeon e realizzando spot pubblicitari per Volvo, Adidas, Navman e Mars. LA DETENTE, il loro nuovo bellissimo corto, è costato quattro anni di lavoro ed è stato presentato e premiato in festival di tutto il mondo.
