Fabrice recently came to Liu Dao from shooting wildlife documentaries in Chile, turning his camera lens from the exotic species of flora and fauna on Robinson Crusoe Island to the curious creatures and unique topography of island6.
Fabrice has over 20 years’ experience working with television networks and production companies throughout France, Spain, Chile and the United States. He has been involved in producing arts, documentary and lifestyle programs for channels including TF1, Canal Plus, France2, Arte and RFO. Fabrice has a Masters in Cinematographic Studies from the Sorbonne, France and a Pre-Doctorate Practice Degree in Documentary Cinema and Anthropology from the University Paris X.
His all round production abilities have him directing, filming, editing and developing concepts for audio visual elements of Liu Dao’s artworks, often all in one day. This, combined with his nothing-can-faze-me calm, cultivated after years of chasing stories of the day as a news cameraman, makes him one of the essentials to the Liu Dao collective. He also has more history with Thomas Chaveriat than any other Liu Dao member, having been born in the same hospital in Paris and friends since, which makes him a great source of campfire stories on the island.
