    Curious about how we made the film? Watch our Making-Of, "the Journey Behind Le Gouffre"!


    Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal. The film tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it. Released in February 2015, the project had first gained a lot of attention following the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, which allowed the creators to finance the movie's post-production. Many were impressed by the passion and determination of the small team of three animators, who spent more than two full years creating the 10-minute film.

    As of now, Le Gouffre has been selected in more than 40 festivals around the world and won six awards, three of them for "Best Animated Short".

    - THE TEAM-

    Lightning Boy Studio was born in 2012 out of a shared passion : to tell great stories. The three founders met in animation school in 2009 and have dreamed ever since to be able to work together on projects of their own. Le Gouffre is the result of their first collaboration. The team is now working on a new idea for an animated feature film and is looking for partners and investors to join in on this adventure.

  4. A short while ago we introduced our new product: The Cardslide!
    It adds just a little bit more space to the Cardprotector.
    To welcome The Cardslide to the Secrid collection,
    we made an animated movie and cohesive soundtrack.
    Or, as we like to call it: ‘An Animated Journey’. Enjoy!

    I was tasked with conceiving and directing the brand positioning, the name and the visual identity. I was also responsible for overseeing the integration and usage across multiple platforms and media for the product launch and sustain.

    This is the launch film, designed to introduce the logo and the methodology behind Spark: creativity fused with data insight.
