“Writer-director [Noah Nuer] should get a real career boost from the seriocomic charmer.”
“A personal approach to cinematography, a unique style, compelling depth, touching and intriguing characters, a lot to think about. And heart… a lot of heart.”
Mark Gordon, Producer

The projects in this section are at various stages of development and available to be picked up by a producer. For more information, contact me.
I specialize in live-action narratives, in the following formats:
• FICTION FEATURES
My personal background and experiences (see the section below) have been quite diverse over the course of my life… or lives! This could be the reason why my film projects are quite an eclectic mix.
A little more
At 12, I discover acting. It’s a revelation: I want to drop out of school. At 14, to give me a chance to act (as well as keep me in school), my parents buy me my first video camera. I discover directing and catch the cinema bug. Is it serious doc? There are no cures. So I write, I shoot and I edit. All of it feeding my true calling: directing.
DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Whether I’m working as a cameraman for broadcast television, for L’Oréal or for my own movies, I’m always exploring how my visual choices can support the emotional tone of the piece.
I wrote a few full-length features scripts, many short pieces and a web series. As an author, I am a constant student of the art of telling stories, and of what can be communicated seamlessly.
I often edit my short movies, and I co-edited my first feature. At this stage, courageous sweeping choices and tiniest tinkering are pivotal for the magic to take.
My life story is atypical and filled with experiences that seem far away from the entertainment business. These pivotal moments have not only enriched and deepened me, they’ve pushed me to develop important skills useful to my filmmaking:
I enjoy collaboration and team work. In fact, I think leading a film crew is one of my fortes. I have honed this skill by successfully running Learning as Leadership, a training, consulting and coaching company. I still serve today as Chairman of the Board.
Writing and directing actors requires a subtle understanding of human psychology. For more than 20 years, I have coached teams and individuals to unlock their unconscious mechanisms and group dynamics. I have also collaborated with academics from Harvard and Stanford and co-authored papers.
I am the CEO of BSC Productions which I cofounded in 1996. I have produced many of my own movies, including my first feature. I intimately understand that a movie is part art and part business, and I strive to bring the two together.
