Bienvenue. добро пожаловать. Velkomið. Welcome.
Breton, exiled in Kazakhstan after having worked and lived, for example in Iceland, and explored the whole arctic world, a friend of mine decided to give me the nickname «Thomas Boreal» which I then decided to keep as a pseudonym.
Musician, photographer, writer and scenarist, I realized some videos and short movies (particulary documentaries), but lately I mainly focused on production of events and festivals. In Almaty, I coproduced the last French Gastronomy festival which was a neat succes, for the first time in Central Asia. I also worked on different cultural projects including a song contest here in Almaty. I'm today working on a festival to enlight icelandic culture and geography here in Central Asia, with the partnership of the Embassy in Moscow.
Working for an independant production company in Almaty, I create scenarios for TV programs, musical clips and commercial. In parallel I started working on my own projects as a director, and am actually filming 2 short features in Almaty and Paris : «Message From Almaty» and «Rennes-Almaty» which are going to be used as promotion for the twining cities comittee between Almaty and Rennes (my hometown), which I'm vice-president.
I consider my meeting with Salamat Mukhammed Ali as one of the most imports and as a chance to finnally come out and exit the shadow to enlight my own projects and creations !
