It’s after he hitch-hikes from the north of France to Istanbul that he has the idea of making an animated travel log. His first independent film, ‘Madagascar, a Journey Diary’, is based on a one year trip to the big red island. This film is very well received and screened in more than 200 international film festivals, including Sundance. The film ultimately garners an Oscar nomination in 2011. In 2012 he directs a TV program based on ‘Madagascar, a Journey Diary’ called ‘Faces From Places’, a series of 20 animated 3 minute travelogue films featuring various countries around the world. In 2013 Bastien releases ‘Cargo Cult’, an animated short film which is set in Papua New Guinea during the Second World War.
