While I’m about to start writing the third volume of my space-opera trilogy fantasy, The Mecha-Soul/L’Âme Mécanique, let me tell you about how I met Pippin (alias Billy Boyd) with whom I had the privilege of shooting a movie called The Droid.
I was in the process of pre-producing the movie back in 2006, when we started figuring out what kind of a casting I wanted. I just told my production manager, Renaud, that I wanted an international casting. It was far fetched for a self produced movie with a shoe-string budget. Meanwhile, Billy had just completed acting in one of the most emblematic trilogy pictures of all times: The Lord of the Rings.
It turned out that I was fortunate enough to use a UK based platform called Spotlight (not sure it still exists today) where I just posted a brief description of the project. It didn’t take long for Aude Powell, Billy’s wonderful agent in that time, to get in contact with me.
A couple of weeks later, I would fly to London and meet with Billy.
The matter was settled and we’d make a movie together.
