Passing the buck

Éric Bruneau and Kim Lévesque Lizotte enjoyed writing together and “passing the buck”, the pandemic having allowed them to lay the last five episodes.

“Those who have already written know that writing with four hands it is an exceptional challenge. Finding authors to work with is as difficult as finding love, so I kind of found love a second time,” Kim slipped, making her partner smile.

“We were able to bounce on each other's idea, we started to build the episodes by talking about it, after that we put them on paper, we could bounce back, it's a very fast, very efficient process, because there is not too much ego in the way. […] I found myself with great characters, writing allies [NDLR Éric Bruneau et la producer Sophie Deschênes], so it was an easy and stimulating process, then it's really difficult when you You are a screenwriter to delegate, to give the ball to the other, but with Éric it happened naturally,” said the author.

The 10 episodes of “Before the crash” will be produced by Sophie Deschênes of Sovimage, the production company to whom we owe in particular “Les pays d'en haut”, “Lies”, and “O'”.
