The most well-known members are Jacques Becker, Pierre Blanchar, Louis Daquin, Jean Painlevé, and Jean-Paul Le Chanois. Members of this organization made projects for French cinema for after the War. During the German occupation of France in World War II they made films about the Maquis, such as one showing a Maquis camp in Vercors. During the uprising in Paris they filmed the documentary Journal de la résistance : la Libération de Paris (directed by André Zwobada). Parts of this movie were used in the newsreel France Libre Actualités.
