13 years ago, Melissa and Olivier met in Paris with the desire to work together… But their careers took off, they lost touch… and ... Los Angeles ... Is it really a coincidence? Their roads crossed again 13 years later !!! Better late than never!! The desire to collaborate is now even stronger.
Melissa has been writing for a long time. Songs. Stories. Scripts. And Olivier happened to read and love “Better Late than Never”, a short film that she wrote. Melissa will star in her own script under the direction of Olivier Ciappa.
Melissa Mars had her first voice over experience for the French version of upcoming Terrence Malick feature Weightless, starring an amazing ensemble cast: Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett to name a few...
Melissa comments about it: "A completely new experience of Acting: just a few seconds are given to sync your voice and your own acting into what another actor did and prepared in weeks or months, trying to respect their work, personality, energy, given circumstances, emotions and keep it reel by being just behind a mic, not in the situation, not in the wardrobe, not with the other actor... crying on the go... Wow!!! It's pretty intense. A small participation but had the privilege to do it on an amazing actress to be named at the release. Hope to renew the experience soon."
Special Thanks to Sergine Dumais
