Stephan Talneau



After a training as Film-Editor in Toulouse (France), I spent the last seven years working in Paris, Berlin and London.


My work as an Film Editor let me explore freely the possibilities of storytelling. Through diverse documentaries, short films and music videos, I always tried to play with the expectations and fears of my characters...and the one of the viewers.

In 2003, I directed a 52' documentary "Let the Lolitas dream" broadcasted in France: a study of little girls having their dreams influenced by fame and their own "Britney spears" mirror. An attempt to understand the growth of feminity...

I also directed a short film "Moshi" screened at the Raindance Film Festival in 2004.

In 2006, the movie “Back and Forth� let me attend to the Berlinale Talent Campus.

I have a huge interest for music in all its forms. I feel that its variations and influences on a moving picture is the most amazing tool to use in a cutting room. The other very special tool being the creative collaboration between alike minded people...

I am currently writing new drama scripts in parallel of working different bands on Music Videos and Documentary projects.
