Synopsis

World Premiere – Artist in attendance

Directors

Guillaume Vallée

Graduated from Concordia University with a Major in Film Animation and Master of Arts in Studio Arts – Film Production option, Guillaume Vallée is interested in radical forms of moving images in analogue forms as a way of considering the direct interaction between different mediums. His work is an exploration of materiality within the creative process. In attempts of creating a more complex relationship with his subject matter, Vallée makes use of found-footage, often resulting in surreal and chaotic imagery. He's also a member of Montreal's artists collective groop*index.
