    After an experience of about 10 years as a technician in the film industry and as a teacher in film technics, Patrick Serre decides to experiment directing. Patrick is passionate about electronic music and by image and he likes to mix both in order to convey feelings. Chair Amour is a perfect example of a sensibility for esthetics set on screen.
    Two films in the form of a video clip from his pioneering work are worth mentioning here: "Les Corbeaux" ("The Crows") and "Kelton Prima - Dallas en brie".
