I produce, edit and design news videos and documentaries, specialising in visual investigations.
My videos frequently attempt to explain complex information, intricate situations, sometimes with limited footage available. It often involves research: archives, documents, open-source content, testimonies, footage analysis, chronolocation, 3D modelling… To put the outcome together, I work extensively with motion graphics - taking advantage of my twelve years experience with it - that I combine with traditional filmmaking techniques.
My first contact with video was through breakdance in 2003. From my teenage years and throughout my twenties, I have been intimately involved in this movement, as a second-rate dancer, but mainly as a videographer. Unexpectedly, this teenager's passion took me to 35 countries, from Korea, to Brazil, Nigeria… I made videos with some of the best dancers in the world, and also with hidden talents in places like El Salvador, Qatar, or Sudan.
Alongside my dance journey, I studied digital media & visual design at IUT MMI Bordeaux and Hyper Island Stockholm. I began working as a freelance multimedia designer in 2009, for design studios, production companies, in various contexts.
In 2016, I took a light turn toward journalism. Soon I had the opportunity to join the video team of Le Monde, where I worked three years as lead motion designer. Beside graphics production, I also edited news explainers, designed a new visual identity, and produced a couple of stories.
In 2019, I co-produced the documentary web series «Dans ton tel» for France.tv and Arte.
I currently work as a freelance video producer / designer. Over the last two years, I have worked with media outlets including BBC Africa, The New York Times, Le Monde, Mediapart, and with the research agency Forensic Architecture.
Since 2013, I have given workshops on motion design and visual storytelling at various schools including CFJ Paris, ESJ Lille, IUT MMI Bordeaux, Chengdu Tian Fu College, RNW Uganda…
