Welcome to Fontevraud

Fontevraud Abbey (in French: abbaye de Fontevraud) is a religious building hosting a cultural centre since 1975, yet its history goes back far longer than that.  It is the cultural center of the Loire Valley and surrounds and is close to the village of Fontrevraud-l’Abbaye near Chinon in Anjou, France.

Today the Fontevraud Abbey invites young artists to reclaim this historical place through their discipline.  To showcase this, Francis Cutter & Vincent Nguyen have created this wonderful short film.  It was created with After Effect and Photoshop with vanishing point tool and camera projection and shot on a Canon 7D.

After watching it, don’t you just want to book a flight and go?
