My name is Antoine Schirer, I am a french video director and motion designer based in Paris.
My story with moving images has been very much connected with urban dance. From my high years, I have been intimately involved in this movement, first as a dancer, and then as a videographer. From Korea to Brazil, El Salvador, Nigeria, Kyrgyzstan… I have filmed and documented this effusive culture, and I have had the chance to collaborate with some of the best dancers (…I can still bust a few moves, if you wonder ).
Alongside this journey, I made my way into the professional world. I graduated in motion graphics at Hyper Island Stockholm, and worked freelance from 2009 to 2016, doing a variety of projects including commercials, broadcast design, video journalism, internet videos, non-profit projects, lecturing…
Through my travels and experiences over the years, I have developed a versatile range of skills (direction, motion design, editing, AD, 3D, coding) also, the ability to adapt and work under many conditions and pressures.
In September 2016, I have joined the video team of Le Monde.
