My Name is Deyan Parouchev

Born in Bulgaria in 1982 in an artistic family, son of painters, live in France since 1991. Rich of two different cultures and operating in several kinds of artistic spheres. Movie director, director of photography and photographer, I founded my own company in 2008.

I chose to turn towards the applied arts and graduated from Créapole ESDI in visual communication and creative advertising. After a short experience in an advertising agency, I entered in the cinema & video post-production as artistic director.

I am passionate about photography since the age of nine, when my parents offered my first 35mm SLR and it influenced immediately a new way to express myself trough the prism of the camera. Fiction movies, documentaries, advertising and music videos are my favorite areas, I try constantly to bring my sensitivity and art legacy into my projects. I also love to work in other genres such as video art and experimental projects.

Thanks to my 15 years experience I can handle as well post production such as editing and color grading. My projects have been shown at numerous festivals around the world and on TV channels, and have been presented in museums such as the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Museum modern Art in Moscow.

In 2012 I created the contemporary art foundation « Yordan Parushev » which manages my parents works and to create initiatives such as contemporary art contest for young artists in Bulgaria.
