Documentary filmmaker, chief editor
Curiosity is a fatal flaw, however I perfectly live with it.
My work leads me to unravel the human being and his contradictions
with sensitiveness and humour.
WHO AM I ?
I was born in 1964 in the heart of a mountainous region in the South of France.
I am used to saying "I was born under a chesnut tree",
the emblematic tree covering the green foothills of dozens of tiny
lost valleys spreading across the area.
These roots which have shaped my pace and persistent character.
I studied Journalism, Movies and Communication at Toulouse University (France)
with a specific target: acquire the necessary skills
to enter the world of live image: concept, conception, narration.
After 3 years spent as a production assistant, I turned to editing.
From 1988 to 1995, I gained a great experience from my senior editors
and worked for various french and foreign movies at Paris.
A school of rigour and a place for developing a sense of styles and storylines.
Since 1995, I have been sharing most of my time between editing on AVID platform
and directing, mostly TV documentaries.
If I had to consider the main thread of my working road,
I would say that I like to focus on the best equilibrium between
form and contents, sounds and words,
to guarantee as much as possible the crucial balance
between emotion and reason.
And if a slight humoristic touch arises, it turns out not to be bad for me to share.
