— I'm Maxime, an engineer specialised in audiovisual arts

I've always been drawn by cinema, photography and arts. I'm well versed in film making from shooting to post-production. Being a full fledged software engineer I use these skills to design new creative experiences. I love to work on audiovisual and art projects where my creativity and rigor can be an asset.

I'm always looking for new projects — if you would like to make something together, get in touch !



— What I do

I make movies

I direct short movies and I join movie crews as a camera operator, camera assistant, or sound engineer during shooting, as a colorist or sound mixer during post.

I work on any kind of creative projects

Cinema, photography, digital arts... If it's creative, I'm in for it !

And I code

Web apps, software, mobile apps... With my experience as a software engineer I design workflows to gain on productivity and I develop innovative solutions for art projects.
