About Jean-Marc

Jean-Marc is a Lebanese-Quebec director and cinematographer who grew up in Ontario in the French-speaking community.

He is a solid and inspiring beacon. His leitmotiv is to constantly evolve his practice beyond his comfort zone by exploring new styles and using new techniques in order to create the best images to serve the story. In addition to directing hats and photo direction, Jean-Marc has a long track record in editing. He brings both his expertise and his very personal perspective to the projects in which he participates. He approaches each project with fresh eyes.

  • Non Réclamé

    • Documentary DP

    Documentaire pour Radio Canada J’ai fait la direction photo pour ce documentaire réalisé par JF Martel. Mon approche cinématographique fut de garder l’univers du film d’un froideur bleu et de garder une lumière en backlight qui réchauffe nos personnages. La lumière du au delà qui touche la lentille. Incursion dans la triste réalité des corps non réclamés au Québec. En 2016 seulement, les morgues de la province en comptaient 190, soit deux fois plus qu’auparavant. Pour explorer ce phénomène, le documentaire se penche sur quatre cas; quatre personnes dont nous reconstituerons la vie, et pour qui nous essaierons de comprendre pourquoi leurs dépouilles ont été abandonnées.
