Capturing the raw, pure emotions of football fans during a match to filming them meeting their footballing idols, Axel has seen it all. Working at Chiliz, no two days are ever the same. Here’s what he had to say about being at the heart of the action.
What do you do as a videographer?
“I film and edit different kinds of footage from some of the many events that we do at Chiliz and fan reward experiences at Socios.com. I try my best to create a storyline and translate the magic I experience in real life, on the screen.”
What’s your background? Have you always worked in this space?
“Audiovisual has always been my first love. I come from an island where we were taught that if you want to grow, you need to get out and explore the world. I worked hard to get myself through audiovisual school in Paris, working my way through different film projects before joining Chiliz.”
What does your average day look like?
It all starts with a cup of coffee and continues with the editing on a number of concurrent campaigns we’re working on, which includes everything from filming to creating animations and social media content for Socios.com and Chiliz.
What’s the best part of working at Chiliz?
“The best part of the job is our team. We are all from so many different countries and experiences, and that makes everyday different, interesting and enjoyable. An absolute bonus is the fact that one of our partner clubs is Paris Saint-Germain, a team that I’ve supported since I was 10-years-old.
What’s your favourite part/feature of the Socios.com app?
The fact that I will be able to vote in polls by Paris Saint-Germain just blows my mind. As I said earlier, I’ve been supporting them for most of my life and as a football fan this is fantastic.
