Living in San Francisco, I have no planned return to Europe and can undertake long-term.

I can manage a whole project, beginning from the concept until the post-production, by understanding the budget constraints, customer requirements.
I am competent in all types of shooting, from simple to sophisticated, know and manage the pre-production and the work plan.

As a technician(1990-2007), I worked on live TV Shows, music videos, documentaries, TV series (Cop-Comedies-historical films, drama...), Feature films, commercials.

As a director in France, I worked on 12 TV series (Comedies and Cop shows), with an average of 6 minutes of film in a 8 hours day (35 shots with two cameras).

I am mainly interested in:
Fiction (Feature films, commercials, corporate films and music videos), animation and/or live action)
project development, writing, partnerships, associations.

Personally, I am creative, sensitive, positive and resourceful, really independent and versatile, with a personal English literary style in constant improvement. I do my best. I think I am true, engaged and fair too. I try to stay efficient and professional in every job and like to make it as my core competence.
I like to be fully engaged in every project and I am demanding.

I will also be interested in a business project or production association, and can consider full time position.

I have some computer skills:
(Autodesk® Maya 2011, Adobe Photoshop®, ProTools®, Final CutPro®, SoundtrackPro®, Final Draft®, Office®, Web, Mac OS, Widows OS.
Currently, I'm training on Zbrush and 3ds max.
