Resume

I am a French independent filmmaker based in Taipei. I have over 15 years of experience directing, shooting, and editing music videos, promotional videos, commercials, short films and documentaries. I’m also an experienced fiction scriptwriter. I have particular interest and more experience in shooting LGBT contents.

​I mostly work as a director, but I can also work as a shooter or an editor. I have experience working as a one man crew and developing particular concepts specially for that kind of configuration, and I also work with bigger crews and bigger setups. Whatever the size and the budget, my priority is always to deliver high quality products, whether it’s artistic or commercial.

I worked with brands like Ikea, Asus, Oreo, or Eslite, and with artists like Pascale Borel, Elsa Kopf, Pierre Faa, Ellery Prescott, Adoga, in France and in Taiwan.

I’m also an awarded filmmaker for short movies and I will be shooting my first feature length film this year in Taiwan.

What's next

The mermaid and the whale - feature film - Preparation

 
Amongst the urban milieu of Taipei, Adrien, a young french expatriate scriptwriter, struggles to stabilize the wavering affections of his Taiwanese boyfriend, amidst the evident stage of his unexplicable pregancy. Little by little, his reality swells into the surreal. - Contact me to see a visual presentation -

Insomnia - short movie trilogy / feature film - Preparation

Insomnia will be a trilogy of short love stories about break-up/mourning/rebirth, echoing a never-ending cycle embedded into life itself, specially in Asian cultures.
The overall project will be composed of 3 independent short films, to which will be appended filmed love letters, like post-scriptum. It'll be assembled all together in the end as a feature film.
It's mostly inspired by Taiwanese films from the 90's. I wanted to catch atmospheres, a certain pace unique to Taipei, and I tried to add the perspective of being foreign to this culture. I conceived the story as a medium to transcribe a state of mind at a precise moment in time. - Contact me to read the script -

May, King, Love, & the foreigner - TV Series - Pitching

Once upon a time, 4 very good gay friends decided to launch a Vlog about gay life in Taipei. Triggered originally by the devastating referendum’s results about gay rights, the questions raised are endless.
Every episode treats a valid question, while our heroes keep meeting guys on apps like Tinder, Grindr, Jack’d, Hornet...
On Sunday brunches, early drinks or late night parties in real places all over Taipei, they reflect and try to define what is the real gay life.
Based on real interviews through their Vlog, the show is to ellaborate and create a real understanding about gay habits in Asia.
