Director / editor
Hey ! Nice to meet you, I’m Florent and I am an interactive media designer. I grew up assisting my older brother on shootings (carrying all of his heavy stuff ^^) and travelling around the world while creating short travel videos during my studies and free time.
After studying media/film for 5 years and building my own experience through the years, I started working for the Swiss company Messieurs.ch as an editor and Camera operator, which has helped me becoming even more professional and perfectionist in what I do.

Producer / editor
Hi ! My name is Swann, like the swan yes.. I am passionate about music and video (I always mix techno music in my room and that usually pisses my neighbors off or more recently my roommate Flo). I discovered the filmmaking universe when I was 17 years old while travelling in the USA. Since then I have created several short films of vacation and some after movies of events or parties.
It’s been about 1,5 years that I really started making high quality content during my free time. I’ve learned a lot from my best friend Florent and other creative people in Switzerland.
Oh and I forgot but I have a bachelor’s degree at the EPFL in Microtechnics Engineering. This has taught me to be a hard working person in everything I undertake.
Producer / Editor
Hi ! I’m Raphael: producer and editor at Roka. I’m originally coming from Physics studies at the EPFL (just like Swann yes). My heart has however always been tending towards filmmaking.
I’m a self-learner and got to experience many different sides of the craft since my teenage years. The opportunities I got after moving to Berlin allowed me to get more serious in the video field.
The solution oriented mindset I got from my studies is one of my best allies when producing my videos. I use it along my creative side to get the best out of my projects.
Like Swann, I also did a bachelor at the EPFL in Physics and I had less time to produce but I learn other skills such as hard-work, consistency and managing stress. I also did an exchange for my last year in Berlin. This is where I could really express myself and this is when I decided to spend my life doing what I like : Producing videos.
I lived in Berlin since 1,5 year now and I’m happy to join the roka team.
Motion Designer / EDITOR
Oy ! How are you doing today ? I’m Joel, nice to meet you, I always loved watching movies and this inspired me to specialize into the Post-Production territory. I started using media production tools like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects and learning them through the years by making projects with friends or just by myself.
Like Florent, I did a Media Interactive Designer school for 4 years and I just finished my 2 years film school formation specializing into editing, sound design and special FX.
After studying and working in different companies like Nestlé, TrivialMass, imedia I wanted to create more personal and creative projects with people that share the same vision as me. So I decided to join my 2 bros into their journey to Berlin to experience video at its best.
Like Florent, I studied film and cinema for 4 years in a film-making school and after that I spent 2 years and specialized myself in the motion design field.
I’m so happy to join the roka team and to start a new journey as entrepreneurs.
