About My Work Au cours de mes premières années dans le domaine télévisuel, j’ai accumulé des expériences en production et postproduction. Ces emplois m’ont amenée à connaître les rouages de la télé de fond en comble. Les différents postes de coordonnatrice et superviseure de postproduction m’ont permis d’organiser différents départements, mais aussi différentes productions; en passant par des séries jeunesse, documentaires et magazines. Depuis 2020, je travaille avec laNégo, en recherche d’archives et libération de droits. J’ai collaboré à différents projets documentaires tels que « Le silence » (ONF), « La goutte de trop » (Extérieur Jour), « In Your Face » (Josh Freed Productions) et « L’ordre secret » (ONF). Les séries documentaires « Skate le monde » (Sphère Média ), « Allons boire ailleurs » (Sphère Média), « Loto-Méno » (KOTV) et « Chasseurs d’étoiles » (B-612) m’ont engagée pour la recherche d’archives et libération de droits. J’ai libéré les droits et effectué la recherche visuelle sur des séries jeunesse telles que « Matières à emporter » (savoir.média) ou plus récemment « Curium » (Trio Orange). Mon vécu dans le domaine télévisuel a mis à profit ma minutie, mes aptitudes organisationnelles et ma gestion des priorités. La postproduction, en particulier, m’a enseigné à travailler efficacement sous pression.
