— I'm Maxime, engineer specialised in audiovisual arts

Passionate by cinema, photography and digital arts, I love to work on projects in which my creativity and technical skills can be an asset. I'm well versed in film making from shooting to post-production. Being a full fledged engineer I specialise on audiovisual technologies and software development. I'm not afraid to learn cutting-edge technologies to open up new creative possibilities.

Currently open to new projects
