Les Films de la Lymphe produced about 60 short films and music videos in the past 12 years, and Ben and Julien were key crew members on every single one.
Moreover the brothers wrote, produced and directed their feature film debut Sodium Babies over a period of 5 years, with a global budget of 25,000€. In the meantime, they started to make a name for themselves in the metal music video industry in Europe.
After the international recognition of their homemade indie movie, the Deka Bothers moved to the States, and continue to go back and forth to France where they direct arty avant-garde projects.
They are currently Artists in Residence at Oakland University, MI, where they are helping to build the new Digital Cinema Production Program.
They recently DP'd a national television commercial and they directed the music video Chris Benoit for Insane Clown Posse, one of the most notorious, independent bands in the US.
