Both director and actress

Passionate about acting and directing, Delphine is not the kind of person to choose between her two passions.

After school, she joined France 2 as a casting assistant on Nagui’s show “Tout le monde veut prendre sa place”, in order to set foot in the audiovisual world. But it is behind the scenes that her real career starts: in parallel to this first experience, she directs her first self-produced short film, “Blanche comme neige“.

During my studies at CinéCréatis, directing seemed obvious to me. It’s a world I particularly cherish, but as a young woman it’s not easy every day! You must never give up, always believe in yourself, and above all work with people you can trust“.

In order to pursue her dream of performing on stage, she also trained as an actress, and quickly obtained her first roles: Joan of Arc in a performance of “The Lark” by Jean Anouilh, Lady MacBeth or Belle in “Beauty and the Beast”.

Later, she appeared in several feature films, including “Iris” by Jalil Lespert, “le Brio” by Yvan Attal or more recently “L’état Sauvage” by David Perrault.

The challenge of entrepreneurship

Pursuing her two passions simultaneously, she directed her second short film, “Nereïda 4”, then “Jag”. After that, she works on a new short film about moral violence in schools, “Je suis en danger” (I am in danger), supported by the association “Respect Zone”.
She returned to the stage in Léonore Confino’s “Building” during Avignon Festival and at the Darius Milhaud, Parisian theater, before continuing with “In Nomine Patris”, a short film that she directed and in which she also played.

In 2020, fond of challenges, she starts a new adventure by launching with two friends the production company “INP Prod“. “We are in the process of soliciting known VOD platforms. I’m also working on several other projects, including a feature film“. To be continued!

Any advice for our students?

Yes, a piece of advice for future directors: hang in there! As my grandmother would say, you’ll see some things that are difficult to digest! Stay true to yourself and don’t give in to injustice or condescension. The rest will follow!

Delphine also adds:

Watching movies, enriching their experiences, never giving up and always believing in them! Especially for women who are starting out as directors. They will see some things that are difficult to digest, as my grandmother would say!

I believe that we must always be true to ourselves and not accept the injustices or condescension that some people may have. It is not because you are a young woman that you don’t have convictions or talent! It is necessary to surround yourself and work with people you can trust, while distinguishing friends from colleagues“.
