Pierre AZEMA


In 1984, after seeing Ghostbusters,Gilles SURRELmakes his first movie prop, a proton pack. During more than twenty years spent in the aeronautical industry (where he will learn electromechanism and the work of composite materials), seven as a firefighter and multiple periods in the USA, he also manufactures cinema accessories.

It was only natural that he created his company manufacturing film sets and accessories in 2016: “The special effects of the hut” since it was in a garden hut that it all started.

He also develops "flexible" accessories intended for stunts, in particular in collaboration with Gregory Loffredo who was stunt coordinator for "To die can wait".

Since then, he has also been a set props man, a hat allowing him to fully implement his creativity!

His encounters and collaborations with, among others, Sabine Crossen and Anne Seibel allow him to flourish more.

This year is very prolific, with collaborations underway for upcoming releases in 2022...


Favorite movies: “The Truman show” “Duel” “Ghostbusters” “ET”  “Jurassic Park” “Le gendarme de Saint Tropez” and many more!!!

L Azéma.jpg

Curious and versatile director,Laurent Azemalikes to take up new challenges and surfs brilliantly on the different audiovisual disciplines. 

An eclectic artist, he likes atmospheric films with neat images as much as finely crafted comedies. If you had to find a common point in all his work, it would undoubtedly be emotion. The emotion in the acting of the actors, the composition of the frames but also and above all in the light. 

Laurent has signed the television and cinema campaigns for Orange, Air Austral, Yoplait and Crédit Agricole. In another style, he also stood out for the tourist series of the Grands Sites de Midi-Pyrénées. 

His latest film, “L'épopée du Pic”, a docu-fiction in period costumes, filmed at an altitude of 2877 meters, is currently being shown at the Pic du Midi planetarium.

His favorite movies:

Apocalypse Now, Blade Runner, Le diner de cons, A bout de souffle, Wall E
