(translated by my dear sister, Julie-July)
After the webcast of my film "In the Tube with Carla." And the buzz generated on the Internet in France and worldwide, I want to clarify some things. The film was removed from servers Vimeo on May 24, 2010, after 65,000 viewings, for 3 days of webcast.
I had no pressure to remove it from the Elysee .All excerpts from TV shows that I used for the film are certainly still available on YouTube or elsewhere ... During his three-day webcast film "In The Tube with Carla" has been downloaded, copied, reshoot ... You can find copies everywhere. It will come up again, remixed, some will make episodes, it even provides a version in 3D ...
"In the Tube with Carla" is not a political film. In many recent television interviews Carla Bruni Sarkozy says that she's not involved in politics. She is an artist married to a politician.
The subject of the film "In the Tube with Carla" is quite different.
Today thousands of movies, series, songs, pictures, books can be found on the web without the permission of their creators. This is the case today for my film. The technological solutions considered to date are not effective in solving this part of the problem.
On the other hand, free access to these works through the Internet is simultaneously a fabulous opportunity for everyone to discover new talents and new forms of art.
This is the free nature of the network, and one reason for the success of the film "In the Tube with Carla." But The fact that it is free is causing some problems to artists.
At a time when YouTube receives each minute (!) 24 hours of new images (!). We really need to look for the right solutions that will reconcile the two.

Yesterday at 5 PM, Vimeo website deleted my movie "In the Tube with Carla" from their website. During the day the movie made 45.000 connections (in three days 70.000) :
Dear Thomas Cazals: Your video 'In the Tube with Carla(11733797)' has been removed for violating the Upload Rules of Vimeo.com: Vimeo does not allow TV shows, movie trailers, or stuff you found on the web. If you believe this was an error, please reply to this email in a civil manner with your reasoning ("I see other people do it" is not a valid reason). Regards, Vimeo
I like very much the "vimeo" signature:)
The video that you've removed "In the Tube with Carla" is an artistic work. My movie recycles YouTube videos that I didn't put on the web. (like Andy Warhol have done by the past with Campbell's soup). I have downloaded them, edited them (creation) and re-shooted with a camera the editing of the movie (creation again) on my computer screen, in order to give it the final aesthetic.
I'm a filmaker and an auteur who try to work about new media and new form of art.
I really thought that "Vimeo" was a good place for that kind of thinking
I was wrong...
I really don't know if Viemo staff had any pression from Carla Bruni Sarkozy... Maybe, maybe not... I don't care
Today (Tuesday 25th May 2010), a lot of the press on-line speak about my movie "In the tube with Carla", like a french political affair. And the film doesn't more exist on the internet...Why ?
I want to keep artistic control on my movie. I have uploaded "In the Tube with Carla" on YouTube website (during one hour yesterday in the night). The success was amazing. But, I had to cut the movie in three parts for the upload. YouTube doesn't accept videos more longer than 8 minutes. I didn't like that, and all the commercial stuff on YouTube. In the night I have deleted all the files from my YouTube home page...
The movie "In the Tube with Carla" still exist... I just try to think about a good way to broadcast it
all the best

Un doigt de Carla
Paillettes, sexe, et pouvoir, In the Tube With Carla, clin d’œil à In Bed With Madonna propose un piquant portrait d’une autre icône people, Carla Bruni, réalisé par Thomas Cazals exclusivement à partir d’images provenant de YouTube.
In the Tube With Carla nous dépeint une sacrée coquine qui n’a pas ses (sept) langues dans sa poche. «Je suis parti avec l’idée naïve de mieux faire connaissance avec ce personnage», explique le réalisateur, qui dit ne pas regarder la télévision ni lire les magazines people. C’est donc «dans la peau d’un extraterrestre» qu’il s’est mis à farfouiller le site de partage de vidéos à la recherche des déclarations de l’ex-top devenue chanteuse folk puis femme de...

Entièrement composée dimages en provenance de Youtube - images volées prises au téléphone portable, archives de télévision, conférences, témoignages de fans, flash de news - "La Transmigration de Donovan Lynch" se regarde comme un polar de science fiction, une enquête à travers les fragments du réseau. Gourou en hélicoptère qui survole les foules, dérapage au théâtre Urania, Californie mystique, Maharishi Chanel et David Lynch Foundation Panoptique éclaté et dérive transcendentale.

Acteur pendant près de six ans aux cotés de Jean-Pierre Mocky, mais aussi cinéphile et auteur (plutôt spécialisé dans la culture marginale, la série B, le cinéma bis) chroniqueur à Mauvais Genres sur France Culture, rédacteur de Mad Movies, réalisateur de documentaires sur les nains au cinéma ou la série B allemande (Exotisme, coups de poing et porte-jarretelles), Christophe Bier est, pour synthétiser, un touche-à-tout.

In 2010 Christopher Lee will be the leading voice of "Heavy Metal Opera" named Charlemagne.
Composer Marco Sabiu, best known for his collaborations with Kylie Minogue, Take That, Pavarotti, Morricone, has created a truly epic canvas by introducing modern metal symphonies, in a style which resembles a movie score. Marie-Claire Calvet, a graduate from Bristol University, transports the listener into "The Dark Ages", with a very powerful storyline and mesmerising lyrics. A full orchestra, heavy metal musicians, choir and special guest vocalists bring the legend of Charlemagne to life.
