Yvan Laurendeau received training in audiovisual production at Vidéographe and Parlimage and he also studied one year in Documentary and in Visual Communication at the Cégep de Rosemont. He collaborates mostly with visual artists. Their works are raw material for him. He uses the pictorial elements of their work much like a sculptor uses clay. The soundtrack is as important for him as the image, one cannot exist without the other and they influence each other greatly. He tries to bring another dimension to the work while respecting its true essence. He directed productions such as Rêve-assez! (1986), Traverse (1986), ASA 86 (1987), Pierre Goulag photographe (1987), Clinique tapis rouge asile blanc (1988), Quoi faire en fin de semaine? (1988), 14 (1988) and Le Guerrier de la paix (1992).
