Francois Chandelle

I was born in 1983 in the countryside of Belgium. Beautiful southern Brussels town of Jodoigne. At the age of 16, I discovered the Hi8 camera of my parents. Great toy that I would use to make my first little movie. A film about concentration camps entirely shot in my high school and my mother’s basement... no comments. In 2001, I turned 18 and spent a year in Seattle where I dedicated my life to music. Believing I would become a rockstar. It was fun... Back in Belgium I started my college years learning audio visual communication. I quickly started to work in the industry as a trainee, runner, carpet placer, second assistant director... could name it all. In 2006 I directed my first short film. «Au poils près...» a very rough impulsive no money project that was imperative to do. Like a statement to say: «Ok, I directed something.» In 2007 I left Belgium for Montevideo Uruguay to shoot my first documentary. «My Monalisa». There I met my wife and developed my career as a film director and producer. In 2010 I came back to Brussels to settle down, have a kid, an apartment, a rock band, a job as a producer and getting my ass to write and direct fiction.
