My name is Antoine Schirer, I’m a video director and motion designer from France.
My story with moving image is closely connected with urban dance. From my high-school years until today, I have been intimately involved into this community, as a dancer first, and then as a videographer. From Korea to Sudan, from El Salvador to Kyrgyzstan, I have filmed, documented, criss-crossed this culture all over the world, and collaborated 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 2008 to 2016, in extremely varied contexts: commercials, broadcast design, reports, non-profits, promos, teaching…
Over the years, I have developed a versatile range of skills (video direction, editing, motion design, camera work, graphic design, 3D, coding…). I’m particularly trained to get things done when there is very strong space/time constraints.
In September 2016, I have joined the video team of Le Monde.
