In 2014, he directed Dreamcatchers with Cédric Bourgeois, a documentary about Belgian wrestlers. From 2011, he made several short films with Méryl Fortunat-Rossi: Moonshine, The Black Bear (230 selections including Clermont-Ferrand as well as forty awards including a Silver Méliès and the Magritte for best short fiction film) or The Plumber (22 prizes including, once again, the Magritte for best short fiction film).
