Philippe Vaucher has directed animated films for over ten years. His unique animation style blends traditional artistic mediums with digital technologies, on both his artistic and commercial projects. His technical innovations originally developed on Chasse papillon/The Song-Catcher (2001, N.F.B.) were discussed in Maureen Furniss’ The Animation Bible (2008). Vaucher’s animated films enable him to constantly explore new themes and techniques. His filmography includes two short films and three music videos; one of which was produced while living in the UK, where he worked and obtained a Masters Degree in Media from the University of Bristol.
Upon his return to Quebec in 2007, he was the lead animator and digital painter on the feature film: Dédé à travers les brumes (Jean-Philippe Duval, 2009). Notably, he was also artistic director of the animation sequences in Paule Baillargeon's feature bio-pic: Trente tableaux / In pieces (2011). Vaucher lives in Montreal, where he completed Le puits/The Well in 2013, an animated short made in coloured salt.
