MathieuÔÇÖs passion for cinema & nature guided him to perform a year of study at IFFCAM, the French wildlife film school, after he graduated in wildlife conservation at Salford university (UK).

Since 2008, he is directing films to tell stories about his fascination for strong relationships between man and the wild environment.

The documentary film genre allows him to stage his characters playing at their own role, adopting a more intimate approach when filming on the field. He also looks for personnal aesthetics & evocative atmosphere in his visual style & cinematography.
