About Pierre

I am a award winning documentary film director, cinematographer and editor..

My approach to documentary filmmaking isn’t purely journalistic where analysis and datas are often upfront. . 

I like to emphasis on the aesthetic side and the visual aspect of the subject or theme of the film.

My work is in between classic documentary making and cinematographic essay and its been awarded for best feature and short documentaries, special motion for best cinematography and best editing for a short documentary.

My work is showcased in Cinemas around the World as well as on Netflix, Amazon, Discovery Channel,Universal Pictures, Canal+, NHK Japan, SWR, The Danish Broadcasting Corporation and others,

Experience

My passion for film making goes way back when I was a kid, using an 8mm cameras as well as still cameras.  

I work on films both as Film Director/cinematographer as well as Cinematographer for other directors. 

I believe that my 20 years experience in the field (including many years as production assistant and director assistant), enables me to have a clear overview and objectivity when working on a film, understanding as well the needs of other directors when working with them as cinematographer. 

I have embraced, the DSLR Revolution from the beginning in 2008, earning 3 awards and selections many festivals including the prestigious BERLINALE for my short documentary " Man of the soil " shot with a 5D Mark II.

I also took interest very early on in the 4K + resolution, shooting my feature documentary " Noma my perfect storm " with a Red Epic/Dragon at 5K which earned me an award for best documentary..

In 2019 I will be available with my own 8K kitbag to respond to the needs of today and future high production value film industry.

I am based in Copenhagen -Denmark
