Personal Profile

Xavier Ducry

Xavier Ducry grew up and spent most of his life in Fribourg (Switzerland). After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Biology at the Fribourg’s University, he decided to dedicate himself to audiovisuel projects and earns his living through different activities. All in all, he worked more than 2 years as a teacher in secondary schools of his country, and had the opportunity in particular to realise small animation movies with teenagers. He spent his winters as a snowboard teacher in the swiss mountains.

More than 2 years spent out of switzerland between Asia and America in the past 10 years allowed him to create a massive library of images that he uses among others in his different audiovisuel creations: art videos, clips, funny animations, events videos, sport movies. Self-taught, he developed his skills since the beginning of digital video cameras. Video quickly became his favorite artistic medium.

He also acquired precious musical knowledges spending time with Frédéric Pasquier (studio 9) and shot many concerts of swiss bands (Kera, Mmmh!).

He finished in 2011 « The Atomic Carousel », a project he’s been working on for more than 5 year. He spent the next year in Nicaragua and came back with a shortmovie, El Reciclaje de Colores. He's now currently working on a new animation short movie, Le Dernier Oeil, that is planned to be out in 2014.
