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. 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 movement. I have filmed, documented, criss-crossed this culture all over the world – from Brazil to Kyrgyzstan, from Sudan to Korea, from El Salvador to China – and collaborated with some of the best dancers and players (…I can still bust a few moves, if you wonder ).
Beside this journey, I have made my way into the creative industry. After graduating from Hyper Island Stockholm in motion graphics, I have worked in post-production (motion design, editing), and then as a video director. Over the years, I have got the chance to work with productions companies, design studios and medias in Costa Rica, France, Holland, Korea, UK and USA (detailed CV on Linkedin.).
I’m a do-it-yourselfer. My wide range of skills (direction, editing, motion/graphic design, coding, camera work) and my working experiences in varied environments makes me reactive and adaptable.
