Ana Sany

France - Sound Recorder , Producer, Assistant Director

I have always been very touched by nature and the plant world in particular. Within KOVisuel, I have the chance to develop a production activity that makes sense and to be at the service of creation, particularly in terms of sound. Always called by this link to nature, I aspire to question it through sound and accompany a creation in a sensitive way.

Since 2019, I have participated in the production of Des Couacs et des Poètes, Jacob Redman's first feature film, a sensitive film which evokes the importance of social bonds in our society through music and celebration. With the Pais de flors project, an ode to the Pyrenean flora, I was able to get closer to my passion and develop my creativity in a natural environment.

Recently, I accompanied the production and sound creation of several portraits, such as Le temps d/une Estive ( awarded with1st. documentary prize at the Røde Reel festival - Australia).
