“There is a lack of talent around video creation, but the training courses available now are not really of the calibre necessary for posts of power in video gaming businesses and in all types of business. The industry is missing good training courses in video creation, a sector which is both young and old, but which is codified by rules that no longer correspond to the way in which to work today. The videomakers need to create content of better quality at a lower cost but with more talent. That requires more polyvalence. As the founder of the production and communication company Way of Live, I want to be able to help young passionate people who are starting out so that video creation can be more expressive and find a future.”

Grégory Hauguel is the cofounder of Wayoflive.tv. An award-winning advertisement creator, and founder of two of the biggest French WebTV channels, he is a technical asset with perfect knowledge of production and direction.

AT THE END OF A TWO-YEAR COURSE, YOU WILL KNOW HOW TO WRITE, CONCEIVE, DIRECT AND EDIT VIDEOS, ON YOUR OWN OR IN A TEAM. YOU ARE GOING TO BE TRAINED TO BE THE BEST “SWISS ARMY KNIFE” VIDEO CREATORS FOR BUSINESSES IN THE VIDEO GAMES SECTOR AND FOR ALL TYPE OF VIDEO CONTENT CREATION BUSINESSES.
