Passionate about image, Séchan earned a reputation as an excellent director of photography and is credited in several notable films such as L'Homme de Rio, Tendre Voyou, La Carapate and La Boum. He worked with great directors (Jean Becker, Jean-Pierre Mocky, Philippe de Broca, Pierre Étaix), but most notably with Louis Malle and Jacques-Yves Cousteau on Le Monde du silence (The Silent World). Attracted to directing, Séchan made two feature films in the 1960s, which were not successful. On the other hand, his short films earned him a harvest of prestigious prizes: Le Haricot, (Palme d'Or du court métrage at Cannes in 1963)[1] and Toine (César du meilleur court métrage in 1981). Most especially, he belongs to the small French circle to have won Oscars in Hollywood, in 1960 with Histoire d'un poisson rouge (The Golden Fish), produced by Cousteau, in the category Academy Award for Live Action Short Film, and in 1975 with Les borgnes sont rois (One-Eyed Men Are Kings), in collaboration with Michel Leroy, produced by Paul Claudon.
