Here's a short live animation we made twith McDo and the help of Sketch, a Toronto based organism for street kids.
We only had a few day to put the project - from pre-prod, various tests with the coffee cups to the shoot - live on Dundas Square in Toronto.
We decided to add a little twist the the coffee installation by making it somehow 3D and by animating it live.
The result was put online the day after.

TV Spot for the international short film festival Regard Sur Le Court Métrage Au Saguenay ( regardsurlecourt.com ). The idea was to promote the festival in a unusual way and also, being able to use the TV spot in print.
The festival's director asked me to work around a specific thematic: objects. I decided to use many film set item alongside usual things to re-create a camera. You can find there a lot of grip item, some Zacuto rig part, pills, glasses, techie gear... a big mess!
I shot it with Dragon over a weekend at Atelier 288 using two synched cameras ( 5dmII for the top view and the 7D for the side view ).

Artv ask Montreal based artists to represent the logo of their channel in the way they want. Julien Vallée used around 15 pieces of plywood with a mirror on the backside to create the shape of the Artv logo, a Canadian television channel.
The shot was made on the roof of a building downtown Montreal. We used a smoke machine and a projector to create the reflections of lights and colours during the shoot.
We mounted the camera on a circular railing system and I batched the still images first in the raw converter and after in Photoshop with a few tricks.
We used a Canon 5D Mark II mounted on a Zacuto base plate system and we also shot a making-of ( to come! ) with their DSLR Gunstock Shooter Kit and a second Canon 5D Mark II.
