A director and producer for over 15 years, Sébastien Devaud is, above all, passionate about the image. Having studied directing, photography and lighting, Sébastien started his career as a cameraman but later, in order to maintain control over all stages of production, he developed his editing skills. In 1999, he set up his first production society AkwabaPROD to shoot and post-produce commercials and music videos. From there, enjoying the adrenalin of live recording, he moved into broadcast TV and created scenarios notable for their use of contemporary lighting and depth of field effects. For Sébastien the release of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR was a revelation. Always interested in new technologies, he grasped the potential of this revolutionary camera from the outset and today uses the full range of Canon cameras and lenses in all his productions.Today he regularly shoots for major broadcasters including M6, FranceTV, Canal+ and MTV, and also creates and produces a lot of TV commercials, titles and campaigns for major multi-national brands.
