Hi, I'm Maxime

I’m a consultant working at the intersection of the creative industries and technology.


I work with media and technology companies to help them generate insights, assess new business opportunities, and capture value.

My focus is on market research, technology scouting, positioning, go-to-market strategy, and partnerships.

Select clients include:

  • Corporations: Meta, TF1
  • Startups: Ircam Amplify, Kinetix, Finimize, Wisear
  • Institutions: Marché du Film (Festival de Cannes)
  • VC firms: Level-Up, Bitkraft
  • Consultancies: Naavik, Eric Peckham’s Wonderhop LLC

For ways to work together, I offer hourly consulting, fee-based projects, and monthly project-based retainers.


For three years now (and counting), I’ve published in-depth reviews of the most interesting companies, trends, and initiatives pushing Media & Entertainment Tech forward.

These reports have helped hundreds of VCs, founders, executives, and analysts understand this space better and assess opportunities in their respective fields.

They’ve been read by people at Unity, Riot Games, Meta, Sapphire Ventures, betaworks, and many others; and featured by industry experts like Devon H. Dolan, Eric Peckham, and John Kosner, and companies like The Brandtech Group.

I write Recreations, a newsletter about the intersection of media, technology, and culture. It’s where I share my thoughts on exciting products and companies, emerging consumer trends, significant moves in the market, and more. It’s also the best place to receive reports like the ones above.

I also work with clients to produce in-depth content on their industries and businesses. My writing has been featured by Naavik and the World Economic Forum.


If you think I can help you or your company with anything media-related, or if you just want to jam about this space, feel free to reach out.
