WORDS – SOUNDSIMAGES

I write words (mostly in French).
You can hire me for some copy work, ghostwriting, or if you need an article
on socio-cultural topics.

2022.08
I was invited to write one of Damien's petite lettre while he was on vacation. You can find it here if you were not subscribed to the newsletter.

2022.03
First behind the scene blog on my Ko-fi page: In the studio with Annabel Lee.

2022.03
I started a Ko-fi page on which I intend to regularly post a « monthly curation » with recommendations for readings, films, music... and blogs on various creative subjects & in English !

2021.09
We alternatively curate a playlist with Damien called « SOSAD » for « Selected: One Song A Day ». It comes with a short anecdote written daily by one of us
(in English this time). website momentarily hacked, might be back someday.

2021.04
I wrote a few words (in FR and EN) about the making of « More (official video) »
by It It Anita.

2020.10
When the lockdown started two of my friends initiated the project Li(b)re – online sessions during which people read aloud – and from time to time there are specials such as Li(b)re à toi where we can read personal texts. The text « Un caillou dans la chaussure de ma psy » was written for one of those sessions.

2020.09
Here are a few words (in FR and in EN) about the making of the mixtape NAAR SUYU #1.

2020.08
The text « 353,70 la coupe » was the first one I wrote for the Li(b)re à toi sessions. As the other one here above, I think we could say that it somehow comes close to a kind of autofiction mini novel.

2019.04
When I travel I love to take analog pictures and write post cards. Here is a recollection of those remembrances.

2018.00
Here a small selection of articles I wrote for the webzine Causes Toujours : (1) To care or not to care. (2) De l’autre côté des barbelés. (3) Zawya, changer de perspective.

2014.00
I've been a writer and then editor-in-chief of the Drash mag for two years. It's a magazine about skate culture in its broadest sense, from Brussels to all Belgium.

WORDS – SOUNDS – IMAGES

I assemble and edit sounds.
You can hire me for podcast content creation and post-production.

Ghosts in the Playlist

I created « Ghosts in the Playlist » wich is part of a bigger curation article on ghosts in music, litterature and movies. I'm still open to suggestions to update this playlist. The ghost can be in the name of the song, the artist, album, lyrics and one's own interpretation.

2022.06

At This Moment season 2

At this Moment podcast is on for a second season this Summer. Here you even have a playlist where each episode is followed by the track we talked about.

Ghosts in the Playlist

I went to the very last detail when creating « Ghosts in the Playlist » for my Ko-fi article on ghosts and shoot this cool picture for the cover.

2022.04

ROAYL SNACK

« Royal Snack » is a scene that did not make the final cut of the documentary « Tramadol » but as there is a particular atmosphere in this pause that Moussa takes during his long journey, Morgane allowed me to make an independent sequence out of it.

2022.01

Tramadol visual

After a challenging and stimulating time on the edit of the documentary feature TRAMADOL, I designed the poster and some of the visuals.

2021.12

movie stills Annabel Lee Live Bota

To help us book Annabel Lee (a band we manage with Julia Camino) we needed a good live video. I teamed up with Alex and Adrien to shoot their concert at Botanique last October, then did the editing and Mathieu took care of the sound.

2021.06

ATM podcast visual

Crafting At this Moment podcast from A to Z also means coming up with a visual identity. I'm glad Damien always finds a way to translate my ideas.

2021.05

2020.07

movie stills Bengal

While we're all participating in a worldwide pandemic, it took ages to hear a single word from politicians about culture. That's why I decided to edit footages from a concert of Bengal, removing the sound.

2020.05

imaginary movie stills

I made imaginary movie stills from analog pictures.

2020.03

movie stills Bengal

I joined Bengal – a Grrrl-post-punk band that I'm now managing – with my camera when they hit the studio to record their first LP « shiv ». The studio report crafted with that footage became the music video of the track « You're Dead ».

2019.08

movie stills Teghadez Agadez

For five years I've been (post-)prod director at GSARA working with a dream team to provide support to young cinematographers crafting documentary films (complete list coming soon). One of the last project is the movie « Teghadez Agadez » by my good friend Morgane Wirtz.

2018
