Highly Commended: infraction

Mickaël Nezreg - infraction
We chose to make a movie mixing comedy, action and fantasy. We noticed that student movies did not often combine comedy and special effects. The idea of a vicious traffic warden getting a taste of her own medicine seemed to us like the potential for some funny and entertaining situations.
