My name is Antoine Schirer, I’m a video director and motion designer from France.
My story with moving image has been very much connected with urban dance. From my high-school years, I have been intimately involved into this movement, as a dancer first, and then as a videographer. From Korea to Sudan, from Kyrgyzstan to El Salvador, I’ve filmed and documented this effusive culture, and I’ve got to collaborate with some of the best dancers and players (…I can still bust a few moves, if you wonder ).
Beside this journey, I made my way into the video industry. After graduating from Hyper Island Stockholm, I have worked freelance from 2010 to 2016, in extremely varied contexts: commercials, broadcast design, internet videos, reports, non-profits, teaching…
Over the years, I have developed a versatile range of skills (direction, motion design, editing, AD, 3D, coding…). I’m particularly trained to get things done when there is strong time/space constraints.
In September 2016, I have joined the video team of Le Monde.
