About Mathieu

Basé à Montréal, Mathieu Elie est directeur photo depuis 2003. Oeuvrant dans le milieu depuis le début des années 2000, Mathieu a porté plusieurs chapeaux en tant que réalisateur, producteur, monteur, tout en perfectionnant son métier de directeur photo. Cette vision d’ensemble des divers aspects de la production lui permet de réagir vite aux imprévus, de mieux servir le montage et de faire les bons choix techniques. Après avoir fait ses classes en vidéoclips, en documentaire et en télévision, c’est maintenant la publicité et la fiction qui sont au centre de sa création.

«Lorsque je regarde un projet, il devient rapidement très personnel. J’aime m’impliquer dans la création tant au niveau artistique que technique, chaque projet apporte sa propre philosophie et sa propre démarche artistique. Trouver les bons plans, la meilleure lumière, les meilleurs mouvements forment en eux-mêmes le langage…la technique ne fait que suivre la parade»
– Mathieu Elie
