History and goals
I have been generalist artist in the biggest VFX companies in France, I founded and I ran a VFX studio during 7 years. I have learned a lot regarding how managing, a team, a show, a client, from prep to delivery and building and running a company. I created the first VFX entity in Europa corp. I managed bigger international movies during 6 years in Umedia as VFX director with heavy VFX, I built a team, the full workflow and pipeline. I worked in Cinesite in 2019 and 2020 in Montreal. For now, 25 years experienced VFX industry member. My main goal is now to reach an excellence level as VFX supervisor. I' m ready to mobilize all my energy, my time, my motivation, and my “fun” for that.
