Pierre-Jacques and Jules Ober are a French/Australian creative duo who tell stories with photos of miniature figurines.
Their first two books, The Good Son and Jacqueline – a soldier’s daughter have won prizes in Australia and France for their totally original visual style and their ability to entertain and move audiences, young and old.
WORKSHOPS AND PRESENTATIONS
Workshops are generally conducted in three parts and feature lots of pictures (projector required).
Pierre-Jacques talks about his personal connection to the historical background of the stories. Jules then takes over with an insight into the process used for making the books and how drama and emotion can be drawn out of resin and plastic figures. Finally, the participants are invited to come and explore a miniature set that has been constructed especially for the day. Participants can experiment with taking pictures on their phone or iPad.
