Born in Beauvais, in the north of France, I integrated the production section of La Fémis in 2008. During 4 years, I learned a lot, made great encounters, produced several short films and directed two. After the school, I worked as a production and post-production coordinator for features films such as “The trial of Viviane Amsalem” by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz and “Atlit” by Shirel Amitai but was still writing and developing ideas on my own. My meeting and collaboration with the producer Arié Chamouni was the turning point. “The Extravagant Illnesses” is my first produced short film.
