Born in 1994 in Antwerp (Belgium). Simon is a young 25-year-old self-taught versatile Belgian director. Active in various audiovisual sectors, he produces, films and assembles most of these creations himself. Having not studied cinema, he learned the profession of image in the field surrounded by professionals. In 2014, he directed a documentary short film on Australian wildlife.

New-Zealand lies up there amongst the most beautiful “postcard” countries in the world. 85 Million years ago when the continents divided, New-Zealand rapidly detached itself from the mainland. The animals it housed developed into a predator-free environment. When man conquered the islands, he brought with him predators and endemic species like birds became easy prey. Protecting indigenous nature has therefore become a priority for New Zealanders.
