Born in a military family, Pierre-Jacques Ober broke with family tradition by preferring philosophy to war. After obtaining a degree in Philosophy at Paris Sorbonne, he went to Germany to work as an assembly line metalworker before finding himself an active element of the Parisian underground music scene at the beginning of the 80s.

During the 80’s, he combined architecture studies and music production while working in fashion and advertising for leading companies such as Premiere Heure and Gedeon. He finished the 80s in a creative duo with a New York fashion photographer, co-directing commercials, short films and music videos.

In 1990, he met and married an Australian photographer and moved to the rainforest in country Australia where life and work became documentary.

In the last 25 years, he has thrown himself into numerous adventures as an independent filmmaker. From the underbelly of Sydney with a gang of outlaw bikers to the Australian central deserts with the painters of the Pintupi tribe. From rough riding with cossacks in Russia to racing wild camels in the Simpson desert.

In between adventures, he has kept working extensively with France. Producing commercials in Australia for Kenzo Perfume, directing documentaries for Universal Music Paris, setting-up French-Australian co-productions for feature films, producing and directing road-movies for networks such as ARTE, France Television or ABC TV.
