«The Inventor» a.k.a «Léo» by Jim Capobianco and Pierre Luc-Granjon

My first movie in France. I joined the armature department as I usually do and furthermore, it has been my first movie as rigger, experience that I enjoyed a lot and I’m looking forward to repeat.

Also, I had the honour of recreating the lion that Leonardo gave to François 1er of France as a gift. Following François-Marc Baillet’s design, this was a great opportunity to explore and apply puppet making workflows that intergrate traditional methods and new technologies such as 3D printing or the implementation of open source software such as Blender Studio for stop motion design and prototyping.

This film was a total learning experience, both professionally and, above all, on a personal level.
