something about the directors and producers

François de Riberolles

Film director

At the age of 10, he took off on a sailboat for a round the world trip. He has a Masters Degree in Oceanography and another in Documentary Filmmaking. He is a dive guide and naturalist who works in the polar regions, and has worked as an underwater cameraman, a film and video operator, an assistant director, and then director … François’ vision as an author is based on long years of experience in different domains, always in touch with nature and the ocean.

The images he filmed as an operator were used in both cinema (March of Penguin, The White Planet) and documentaries on Canal+, Arte, PBS, Discovery, National Geographic, and Animal Planet… But for over 10 years now, François has been writing, directing, and filming his documentaries, which are always long-term projects.

After having directed 3 episodes of the international 6×52-minute series Life on fire, co-produced with Arte and Saint Thomas Productions, which received numerous awards at festivals, he directed Mémoires de Volcans, a 90-minute long format.

His second sizeable project was born at his own initiative. The project is called Moon – The hidden face of the earth. A 2-year long adventure produced by Planète+ and Camera Lucida which gave rise to a 90-minute film event and 2×52-minute documentaries distributed in over 15 countries.

His last work, Channel Islands – an American Story, a 3×43-minute series for Arte, a project commissioned by Films à Cinq productions, which tells of man’s relationship with his environment throughout the 13,000 years of the history of the conquest of the American continent.

The dreamlike nature of the narrative and of the images he films along with the frequent use of classical animation and new technologies are what make François’s films so original and are the guarantee of a signature that is recognised today.


The illustrator

After studying for a diploma in Art in Illustration at Estienne School, Ugo joined the Animated Filmmaking section of Gobelins School. In 2010, after having spent time at the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles, he turned to experimental animation.

Back in France, Ugo joined the « Image Temps Réel » programme at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs as a student-researcher. He continued his training the following year within Animation Sans Frontières. Since 2010, he has been writing and directing music videos and short films. He contributes to the creation of documentaries as a graphic artist, story-boarder, and director of animation.

In 2014, he worked on the animation of the film Eden by Mia Hansen-Løve. The same year, he signed off on a comic book, Sukkwan Island, adapted from the novel of the same name by David Vann. In 2015, still with Kevin Manach, Ugo developed the project for a full-length animation film, Domenica, written by Jean-Luc Fromental and Patrick Raynal (Miyu Productions). In 2016, he drew for the press and developed the mini series Antman, once again with Kevin Manach. He then published a second comic book, Paiement Accepté, wherein he imagined the life of one of Donald Trump’s sons, exiled in France after a civil war in the United States.

More recently, Ugo published two new comic books, which both drew critical acclaim. The first, Premium +, about the destiny of a man, steeped in certainties, a financier with a brilliant career who, in the end, faces failure. The second, Préférence Système, which also came out in 2019, received the Grand Prix de la Critique and was part of the Official Selection at the 2020 Festival d’Angoulême
