Video Portrait, 8 minutes

Bons Baisers d’Amérique was a cultural television program presenting documentary short films, interviews and impressions on various topics connected to people speaking French all around the Americas, from Alaska to Patagonia.

As a “on-the-road-videographer”, I was given extensive freedom to make my films. I wrote my scenarios, conducted my interviews, operated the camera, engineered the sound and presented my comments on-camera for over 60 documentary shorts (6 to 9 minutes) in Canada, Cuba, Martinique, Mexico, and the United States. Bons Baisers d’Amérique was produced by Pixcom and broadcasted on TV5, Télé-Québec, Quatre-Saisons and Voyage Channel.
