Filmmaker ・ Photographer

Long before smartphones and Instagram, Jean-Marc has always enjoyed the process of documenting and telling stories. Nevertheless it would take him some time to shamelessly combine it’s passion with it’s profession.

After graduating in Visual Communication at Ecole de Recherche Graphique, Brussels, he moved to Canada for a year in search for additional training and adventure.

Back in it’s hometown, he started a long and winding career at international design and branding agency Basedesign. Hired initially as a graphic designer, he had the opportunity to work on the rebranding of TV channel Canal+ Belgium (now BeTV) which has been a turning point as he decided to entirely focus on audiovisuals. Helped by the ability of speaking 5 languages, he led the animation and video projects across the Brussels, Spain and New York based offices. In 2008, he moved to the Barcelona office and became partner. In 2012 he finally left Basedesign and started a new freelance career.

In search for more adventure he cycled solo through South America for 3 months which opened it’s mind and changed it’s vision about life in general. Whether you need to make a short film about bike messengers in Beirut or demonstrate the positive impact of limestone extraction on the environment in Poland or cover a local event, you name it, Jean-Marc uses the documentary grammar as tool to tell stories that will help to engage with your audience through a unique and authentic vision.

Jean-Marc also teaches Audiovisual Direction and Production at ELISAVA, Barcelona School of Design and Engineering.
