It was in Australia (Byron Bay) that I directed my first documentary « Is everything possible, Darling ? ». The following year I moved to New Zealand and where I started writing my first fiction « Free Fall ». This script was chosen by G.R.E.C (Film research group) so I could take part in a Preparation and Re-writing workshop in 2010. I shot « Free fall » in 2011 and it was broadcast on French TV channel (France 2) the 31 may 2015. Following these early films, Eurica Media Lab chose me to take part in a director’s training course in New York in September 2010 with Lenore DEKOVEN. In July 2012, I was asked to be artistic director on a short film produced by Eurica Media Lab / Astoria studio in New York . I shot my second short film « Omessa » in october 2014 in Corsica (France) and the film won already 17 awards and it has been selected to 80 festival around the world. It will also be broadcast on french TV channel (France 3) in November 2015.
In Febrary 2015, I just got selected to the « Feature film writing course » organized by the french cinema school LA FEMIS under the direction of Jacques AKCHOTI.
