Jeanne Noulin

Since my tender age I’m a music and movie lover.

I like to match music with video and watch how the sound can modify the visual. I always loved to question myself about the oddities of life. The weird part in every person fascinates me. In fact, I’m mesmerized about human unconscious psychological behavior. Especially when it comes to a human reacting like a wild animal. I like to film people around me in everyday situations in order to see their attitude.

Actually, I work for Condé Nast France specifically for GQ and Vogue as video editor and assistant director.
