DIRECTOR / VFX ARTIST / PHOTOGRAPHER
Internet is sometimes valuable and this was particularly the case for Stéphane Davi who, thanks to the plethora of information on the Web, became passionate in computing for which he developed a tremendous technical know-how.
Self-taught, he directed his first 2D/3D animations and learns to shoot in the heart of the streets of Orly, in the Paris suburb. Without any academic background, he began studying at Epitech and then the George Méliès School specializing in digital manipulation.
First noticed by the Mafia K'1 Fry, the French rap group for whom he made the music video "Sans Rancune [no hard feelings]", Stéphane Davi would later collaborate with many renowned artists such as : Napoleon DaLegend, Barrington Levy, Kery James, Niro, 113, SixcoupMC, Mokobe, Rim'K, Seth Gueko, Saïd Taghmaoui for the advertising firms such as Alpha Romeo, Lancia, Ernest, for major companies : Universal, Capitol Music, Sony, Warner, EMI, Play Two.
And several collaborations with American artists like :
Snoop Dogg, Craig David, D12, Fat Joe, Young Paris, etc...
Inspired by Charlie Chaplin and particulary the sentence
"the world is a stage in which the street is its most beautiful spectacle", Stéphane Davi wishes telling the story of the street using his lenses through film and photography.
