Born in 1992 in Saint-Etienne (France), Yannis Mouhoun takes part in the edition of several outlets of internet media (radios & magazines) while studying politics. Self-taught and perfectionistic in his works, he develops affinities for the audiovisual arts and starts focusing on photography, writing, directing, as well as composing his own music.
In December 2015, he kickstarts his directing career with the release of a first short movie dedicated to combativity, “The Fighters”, and gets noticed for his emotional and engaging storytelling. A few months later, he goes further with the developing and directing of a second short film revolving around creativity, “Sparks of Genius”, and then takes on acting for his third film, “Together”, on top of directing; in a fresco depicting absolute and unconditional love. Mouhoun composes, records and mixes all the soundtracks of his works.His style, epically aesthetic, more often than not gets his short films classified as “visual poems”. In 2016, he goes on a journey of 45 days through 9 European countries resulting in the publication of a photo series getting widespread media coverage, “Europa”. Director, author, producer, editor, photographer composer. Mouhoun does it all. He founds the audiovisual production studio EGO in 2016, assuming the position of creative director.
