Hi there ! I'm Iftane !
I am a French-Moroccan story artist working in the animation and film industry, based in Bordeaux.
Growing up in North Africa I've always been passionate about animation and photography. When I discovered that there was an industry behind the animation movies I loved, I decided to move to France to start my journey in art school. During my 5 years program, I learned the art of character performance and storytelling in animation taught by experienced professionals who work at the forefront of traditional, CG and independent animation.
After my graduation in 2018, I had the opportunity to work and travel as a cinematographer with a National Geographic crew. I was really excited to learn more about what was going on behind the camera, so I continued to work as a freelance cinematographer, making my own storyboards, which led me to score my first contract with a subsidiary of UGC IMAGES as a story artist in 2019.
From my background as a cinematographer, I retained a taste for telling stories through meaningful compositions, camera mouvements, set design, staging and lighting, that I now like to use in artistic challenges.
I am currently willing to focus exclusively on storyboarding.
