My name is Antoine Schirer, I’m a video director and motion designer from France. I do promos, broadcast design, reports…
My story with moving image is closely linked with urban dance. My first hand on a camera was back in high-school, to capture my first breakdance performances and travels. These two passions developed, and over the last 12 years, I have intimately taken part in the life of this culture. I have filmed, documented, criss-crossed this culture all over the world – from Brazil to Kyrgyzstan, from Sudan to Korea – and worked with the main dancers and players (I’m still dancing today, if you wonder!).
Beside this journey, I also developed myself in the moving image industry. After graduating from Hyper Island Stockholm in motion graphics, I have worked in post-production (motion design, editing), and then as a director. Over the years, I have got to collaborate with productions companies, design studios, medias, in France, UK, USA, Korea, Costa Rica, Holland… (see below).
I’m a do-it-yourselfer. My wide range of skills (direction, motion graphics, editing, camera work) and my working experiences in many different countries and environments, makes me very adaptable and reactive.
I’m taking part in several projects and collectives (see below), and I also give occasionally lectures and workshops, notably at Bordeaux-Montaigne University.
I’m currently based in Paris, and available worldwide.
