About

Hi !

My name is Xavier Munch, I'm 27 and a filmmaker. "Filmmaker", a word that finds no equivalent in my native French language.

My journey through this world of lights and cameras surprised more than than one already, but always pleased the one who trusted me. Coming for a condensed matter and nano-physics Master, I jumped into the video world in 2015, deciding to give it a go. Starting with an ambitious amateur project, I then developed my experience and filled my resume following the encounters : in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Strasbourg.
And if along my journey, it has been told to me many times to only display one or two main skills, I can only but notice that it always change depending who I'm working with. I've always tried to push my editing and directing skills, and yet even recently I've been asked to grade, mix and conform a 60' doc for television.

That's why I love this word so much : "Filmmaker", the one who makes films. Because this is really what it is : conceive a project, bring it to the finishing line no matter the toughness of it. And it I must learn, improve, improvise, this is quite an euphemism for life !

Since 2018, I offer my services - Directing, filming, or in post - through my company At'Home Communication, and I've since acquired a Cinema Camera and lenses. I'm ready, fully equipped for the next challenge : what if it was yours ?

Nothing compares to a first impression, so contact me !
