Over his 30-year career, Serge has directed more than 300 hours of television programming for a range of broadcasters in two languages (English: Discovery Canada-US-Europe, National Geographic, Discovery Kids, YTV, CBC, Life Network, UK’s Channel 5… / French: TV5 Canada-Monde, MusiquePlus, TFO, Radio-Canada, Canal D, France 6…).

Although he has directed many educational children’s television series (classics such as “Popular Mechanics for Kids” (72 episodes from 1997 to 2001) and “Mystery Hunters” (52 episodes from 2005 to 2008)), factual programs and other television genres, most of Serge’s directing has been in the documentary genre.

Serge has been nominated three times by the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television for a National Gemini Award (Emmy equivalent) as “Best Director for an Information Program/Series”, and once for a National Gemeaux Award as “Best Director for Children Program/Series”.

Serge started teaching at Kaua’i Community College in the Spring of 2013. Besides teaching digital photography classes at the college, he has organized/coordinated multiple partnerships and collaborations involving photography within the community, including the permanent K.C.C. Student Photo Exhibition at the County’s Pi’ikoi Building (in Lihue) and the annual R. J. Baker Photo Award. He is also very active with multiple digital media arts initiatives and projects, both on the Garden Island and State of Hawaii (e.g. HIFF, Creative Labs, Kaua’i Creative Technology Centre, Kaua’i Film Steering Committee, GIFF, etc.). He works full time as Creative Producer for 4D media.
