Crowd-funding campaign

We are planning to launch very soon our crowd-funding campaign for the movie «Spierer’s List». Our project was delayed because of the unstable political events that took place in Turkey (where a large part of the film takes place) — thank you for your patience…

I was accepted as a director in the kino kabaret of Geneva where my film’s

Writing With Light

American Cinematographer Magazine has written an article about Toben Seymour‘s music video for The Willowz that I worked on in Los Angeles, as a guest director and media manager.

Directors Lab 2006

I was extremely lucky to be accepted in the 2006 Directors Lab of Film Independent, in Los Angeles, with my project «Junkyard of Dreams».

We spent 8 weeks, with other fellow directors, to work on our feature film project, meeting mostly at the Sony studios in Culver City, or at the new offices of Film Independent on Wilshire Blvd. We had the mentorship of great professionals such as Rodrigo Prieto, Rodrigo Garcia, Shane Black…

I shot a trailer for my film, as part of this lab, now visible on Vimeo.

This interactive film installation, whose physical structure was designed by AETC (Antoinette & Christian Scheidegger), won the new media award at the Festival of New Cinema of Montréal, ex-aequo with Morten Schjødt for Switching.
