The first behind-the-scenes documentary in the film industry, from the making of a camera to studio shooting and directing, including animation techniques. Pierre Chenal met a man in his workshop who drew a series of freehand drawings. A cartoon on film emerges from these sketches, which are ground in a coffee grinder. Alfred the penguin's first steps are being developed by Alain Saint-Ogan and his host in Champigny. Ladislas Starewitch presents his future stars in Fontenay-sous-Bois. Pierre Chenal wanted to shoot a documentary in which he would show how a film is made in order, at the same time, to learn it himself. "
