Jackson, Chris Pine, David Tennant and film directors such as Josie Rourke and Joss Whedon.

A natural linguist and teacher he has a highly developed ability to help actors find their unique voice regardless of their language skills. He specialises in French, Russian and Italian but his keen grasp of phonetics allows him to train actors in any target language. 

Fabien holds a BA in Russian Language and Civilisation from the Institute of Oriental Languages in Paris and has studied Japanese at SOAS. He is a qualified French teacher, has extensive training in phonetics (IPA), and has studied accent coaching for actors with Knight Thompson (http://ktspeechwork.com)

Fabien is fluent in English, French, Russian and Italian, conversational in Spanish and German with some Japanese and Mandarin. As well as his work, languages are his hobby and he is constantly adding to his language repertoire.

Fabien can support a wide variety of production language needs, such as language and accent coaching, phonetic transcriptions, support on set, post-production (ADR, Subtitles) and script translation.
