I am a screenwriter, director and production designer / art crew: I tell stories through images.
In the present tense as a director, in the past tense as a production designer / art crew, both as a writer.
I enjoy all these facets of visual storytelling, and love helping bring a great story to life through the development and preproduction stages.

Before turning to filmmaking, I fully lived my two other passions: scientific research, another kind of exploration of worlds and storytelling, and horse riding.
To discover where I come from and get a more complete view of my background and skills, just take a look at my resume.


WRITING – DIRECTING – PRODUCTION DESIGN

A storyteller at heart, I especially enjoy the first step of the journey, when as a screenwriter or script editor I build the story on the page, complete with its world, characters and colours.
Then to make that story tangible I equally love conceiving its world as a production designer, in close collaboration with the director, and bringing its characters to life as a director myself.
As a scriptwriter, researcher, script editor and director, I mainly work on fiction films, but also have some experience in documentaries, especially around research and story building.
As a production designer, I add layers to the story by creating its world and overall look, and lead the departments that will make it real: locations, sets, props, costumes, makeup and sfx.

ART CREW

Besides production design and the universe and colours of the story as a whole, I enjoy telling the story at a more detailed level, through all that could show who the characters are:
as art department crew, I choose, make and place objects as tokens of the characters' past and present life choices, that as a set decorator, property master, prop maker or set dresser.

OTHER CREW:   production teameditorsubtitler

I sometimes work in other positions with a strong storytelling component: in the production team as a researcher or location scout, especially when I also design the film, or as an editor.
And to help distribute a film wider, I combine my knowledge of film language with that of English and French to chisel subtitles that are true to the story, its characters and the film subtext.
