Hi everyone!

       - COMING SOON -

Destiny's Strings

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is doing fine!

I finally finished editing Destiny's String, hip hip hip hourra! 

There were many many things to fix in post (especially sound wise) and it's still not perfect but I finally accepted it...
I actually reshot a lot of cutaways last december, which is why the process took so long.
I've sent it to a lot of international and indie film festivals and hope it gets at least 1 or 2 screenings but the competition is tough, so fingers crossed!
I've had the chance to work with an amazing team, especially Youssef the young kid playing Adil, who was absolutely fantastic, so even if this short film doesn't make it anywhere it was still an amazing experience!

Unfortunately, since a lot of festivals have a premiere policy, I can't post it online or share it with you... 

However, if you really want to see it then just drop me a message and I'll send you a link with a password so you can watch it.

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all doing well!
Two days ago we finished filming Destiny's Strings. It was hard and exciting and tiring and challenging and thrilling but absolutely amazing :D
Definitely one of the greatest experience of my life. I also got very lucky and had such an amazing team!!
Now I'm starting the editing and looking forward to sharing it with you all!!

See you soon,

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all doing well!!
I've finally achieved one of my bucket list first goals: Travelling to the Matchu Picchu!!
It was definitely worth the 24h travels and 3 flights! Absolutely mesmerizing and so out of time! Cuzco somehow reminded me of some parts of Morocco, the very narrow streets, the places that were almost abandoned and poorly maintained but that somehow looked amazing! 
In total, I spent two weeks in Peru. During the first week, I volunteered in Aldea Yanapay, an eclectic school in the suburbs or Cuzco. It was definitely one of the greatest experience of my life. I've learned some much on so many different levels and the kids were fantastic. However, I do really need to practice my spanish, I realized I wasn't fluent at all...
The second week, I got ill and did some tourism, mainly visited ruins but that was interesting. Obviously, I took loads and loads of photos!!

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all doing well and enjoying the summer rays of these days! As some of you might already know, I am currently doing a crowdfunding campaign to raise some money to fund my first professional short film. It's a project that is really close to my heart as I've been thinking about for a few years now. It was supposed to be my graduation film but it was too complicated to finance and to travel with the crew to Morocco. 

It's called Destiny's Strings, it's a 15 min short film and it is basically a Moroccan twist to Billy Elliot the movie. Adil, a 7-year-old boy, wants to become a violinist but his father, who's unfulfilled with his current life, thinks it's a meaningless job and wants his son to aim for a more elitist career. However, Adil who's magnetized by the instrument, will secretly learn to play, causing his father concern and anger when he discovers it. I don't wanna spoil the ending but I really want this movie to be as emotional as possible!
I feel a bit embarrassed to ask for money but anything you can give is definitely going to help us to fund our short film. It's a very challenging project as we have many characters and some very expensive set ups but this won't stop us!

If you can't financially help us, just spread the word and share our campaign on social medias, this would fantastic! 
Here's the link to make a donation: 

Check out the campaign video if you wanna get a clearer idea of what our short film is about!!

Many thanks,

Cinematography Showreel

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all doing great!

Lately, I've been working on my showreel, I was actually thinking of doing a director one since I aspire to become a director. However, I realized that I've been more involved in cinematography than directing these past three years, which is a bit weird but I guess I can do both (no so strange since I started by doing photography). 

Anyway, here is a condensed recap of what I have been up to these past three years, a showreel of my best work cinematography wise.

Hope you'll like it!

See you soon,

REMORSE a hungarian short film

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all doing well, even if for most of us exams are coming soon...
Recently, I've been working on a live portal project between my university in London and Ryerson university in Toronto. The brief was to make a proposal for an installation that could exist simultaneously in two designated public ‘storefront’ locations, and to somehow connect these two cities, which are thousands miles away. Our plan was to create a 3D abstract demonstrating two cities coming together. We wanted to build both a London and Toronto skyline made from multi-coloured plexiglass. Tiles would have come away from each structure and meet in the middle at a screen showing live feed from the opposite city. The tiles would have been covered in photographs that would have brought together elements of culture, history and identity from the different cities. Unfortunately, we've lost this competition but we were runners up, and that's not too bad. Anyway, I thought I would still share with you the video I made relating our experience working on the project:

Moreover, I've been working as a director of photography in a hungarian short film. Shooting in hungarian was absolutely fantastic! Such a great experience! This is the graduation film of one of my best friends at university and it's a sci-fi with heart and moral. It's set in a world where you have to pass a test to break into a higher social class, and in that set up, your only identification tool is your right thumb fingerprint. So, when Roland, the main protagonist, has his finger cut off by a group of envious people, his world collapses as he can't study to change social class... I don't wanna spoil this short film and I will hopefully soon be able to post it, but until then, here are some snapshots of the rough cut:

See you soon,
