About Me

Having recently completed an MA in Directing Film & Television, I now want to move forward by inspiring others through the magic of cinema. I have acted, written, edited, directed, shot and completed sound design on several of my own short films (and continue to do so - a feature film is in planning) which have gone on to receive numerous festival selections. I have also created films for drug and alcohol rehabilitation charities, music artists, and construction businesses. This means that I have both a strong educational and practical background in filmmaking.

More important than any of that is my desire to make our lessons fun, engaging and accessible. Rather than simply have you scribble out everything that I say in the hopes that something might stick, I will use film and video examples to reinforce topics and lessons for the future.

MEDIA TRAINING WORKSHOPS (TELEVISION AND RADIO)
How to prepare for a media interview? What means should be used to fight his fear of the camera and improve his image? How to present yourself and your project in front of a camera? How to present yourself and your project to the media? Targeted content according to your project: Verbal and / or gestural communication; Seduction of the lens and / or microphone; Improvisation in front of a microphone and / or a camera; Voice & gaze; Games of one or two cameras; Chronic; Animation; Reportage; Direct radio & TV; Interview; Narration; Speech in all its forms (...) In short, several objectives: ◾ Confront your shyness in front of the microphone / camera ◾ Understand his speech and his diction ◾ Taming the media environment (radio / tv) ◾ Familiarize yourself with your image and voice ◾ Manage your speaking time Through exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentations, time management, etc.), role plays, interview simulations and familiarization with one's image and voice, the participants move at their own pace in a flexible educational framework. Note that during the videoconference session, all the notes are transcribed in the chat so that you can access them at any time when you wish. Indeed, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, which, while taking care of its image, is based on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations ) reflecting the speaker's involvement in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? Knowing how to speak, act and interact in public is almost a necessity today: your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering confidence ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups ● overcoming shyness by assimilating 3 CRV axes (body-breathing-voice) ● better manage disagreement or conflict. Mastered, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation • to work on their ease, leadership, charisma, creativity and personal development through scenarios * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitches, intention, flow) * get your message across through your image, while gaining improvisation skills and responsiveness Supplemented by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management), role plays, improvisations and simulations. With the key word: pronunciation, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 sessions *. (* study 2020) THE TRAINER - COACH Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking, in renowned international public and private establishments, intervening in forums and conferences, and oriented on pedagogy and careful methodology. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (example: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place in a very optimal way and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Video editor gives introductory course and autonomy on Final Cut Pro X
Final Cut Pro X is one of the most intuitive editing software out there, but it's difficult to use if you're just starting out on your own. Former video editor for the program C'est Pas Sorcier, I offer introductory and autonomy courses to discover the joys of video editing. I am also an English teacher, experienced in all forms of pedagogy. The idea is to make yourself independent as quickly as possible, by showing you the recipe for an efficient and fast method. All in a good mood of course!

Storytelling. Starting point of a good story or script.
Stories are as old as we are, but if you want to put a story on paper or portray a story, it turns out to be more difficult than talking to your friends. How about now? Not what you tell, but HOW you tell it is the most important. The basics and how to use psychology to write a story, this is what you will learn anyway. Those who want to continue afterwards will learn how to write a script. Fiction or facts, you decide what you want to learn.
