After 6 months training in visual development at Disney' s Talent Development Program in Burbank, he joined the team behind the first Ernest and Celestine as a 2D animator.


In 2014, he founded La Cachette studio with Oussama Bouacheria and Ulysse Malassagne, two GOBELINS alumni, and co-directors of Royaume, their graduation film. He worked on the first season of Love, Death and Robots (Netflix) and on the multi-Emmy Award-winning series Primal, as producer and executive producer .







In 2015, he was contacted again by producer Didier Brunner , who suggested that he reunite with the two characters inspired by Gabrielle Vincent's universe to co-direct the series Ernest et Célestine with Jean-Christophe Roger. This collaboration will then lead in 2020 to a new feature film, Ernest et Célestine : Le voyage en Charabie, also in 2D.


See you on Friday, February 24 for the 48th César ceremony!

For our two heroes, living without music is unthinkable! Accompanied by their accomplices, including a mysterious masked vigilante, Ernest and Célestine set out to right this injustice and bring joy back to the land of bears.
