    “Point and check”! In Japan, finger pointing is a technique that standardizes and shapes security protocols. 

    This practice is like a choreography of gestures that reassures and streamlines the movement of trains. Far from behaving like robots, the attendants are more like guardian angels of the rail system.

    They are proof of the optimization of urban space but also of a compulsive need to decompress for the Japanese. In these atypical places far from the ground, slices of life emerge.

    These nine modules will immerse us in the very heart of Japanese society, in the very heart of Tokyo, its energy, its fantasy, its contradictions. The documentary series will decipher "Japan from inside out", in a fun, odd and offbeat way.

    The gachappon is the equivalent of jukebox: a vending-machine for junk surprises, a spectacular mechanics like a pinball machine and addictive like a slot machine. But instead of delivering a plastic gift, a video capsule will emerge to help us discover this distant and fascinating country by its less known side: small daily realities!
    Each of the nine episodes of the documentary web series Gacha Gacha is designed in a fun discovery mode, to dissect nine typically Japanese rites. Ways of doing things that are both millennial and hypermodern, disciplined bodies and lively minds, a very modest and suddenly exhibitionist daily life. Technological and spooky materials, sounds and colors.

    The imaginary worlds of fantasy irrigate literature, cinema, video and role-playing games. Illustrator John Howe, the concept artist of The Lord of the Rings series, takes us on a wonderful four-part journey to discover the artists who have crafted fantasy.

    Over the past twenty years, our views on Fantasy have shifted tremendously. Long reduced to repetitive adventures in comic books or movies with kitschy settings and poor scenarios, Fantasy now faces higher expectations from readers and critics alike, who demand complex heroes, strong female characters, original universes, in tune with more modern issues.
    From its distant origins in myths and legends to its emergence into popular culture in the second half of the 20th century, fantasy has gradually taken shape over a history spanning more than a century. From the romantic Germany of the Brothers Grimm to the Texas plains where Robert E. Howard gave birth to the character of Conan, from the socialist utopias of William Morris to the tortured and eccentric mind of HP Lovecraft, John Howe’s travels will be interspersed with animated sequences breathing life into the stories that laid the foundations of the genre. To understand what makes these works so relevant and prevalent today, John Howe will be assisted by renowned experts such as S. T. Joshi, author of a 1200-page biography of Lovecraft, and Patrice Louinet, editor and translator of Robert E. Howard.

    Fantasy is everywhere: in cinema, in literature as well as in videos and role-playing games. But what are the origins of these stories? Who are their pioneers? And what does it say about our society when fantasy series like "Game of Thrones" or "Lord of the Rings" become so successful? Illustrator John Howe is one of the masters of the fantasy genre. The documentary series takes him on a journey back in time to the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm to the novels of Robert E. Howard. In four episodes, John Howe meets famous people who explain to the viewer the more than hundred-year history of fantasy novels.
