Director / Editor

“Don’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling”
Alain’s directing approach is built on a foundation of storytelling through strong visual imagery. Some say he talks in pictures. But, those who’ve actually met him would also agree that a large portion of his vocabulary stems from Christopher Nolan quotes.
