Since 2002, Maximilien Mathevon has composed the original soundtrack of numerous documentaries for French TV channels (CANAL+, ARTE, M6, France Televisions). In 2002 and 2003 he created new musical accompaniments for 12 famous silent movies as they were reissued in France on DVD (20,000 Leagues Under the Seas, Outside the Law, Way Down East).
