Valère Amirault is a French director, living in Paris. After finishing his animation degree at Supinfocom, his end-of-studies film, 8BITS, was short-listed for several festivals and awarded multiple times, notably at the acclaimed Sundance International Festival. After having worked both in London and New York, he returned to France in 2012 where he worked as a supervisor and 3D animator.
In 2016 he released his second short-film “Symphony of Two Minds” which effectively launched his directorial career. He is also a founding member of the collective “Chemical Bouillon” which directs videos and live performances mixing together art and chemistry (M tour, Oxmo Puccino, villa Médicis …). After 2018 he developed a new animation style, blending 2D animation and 3D, more adapted to independent productions.
His style playfully combines Japanese animation influences and films d’auteur. As versatile as he is resourceful, he never stops pushing the boundaries of animation to develop his creative vision. He recently directed a Free Fire trailer for Garena’s new game “Free Fire Max”. He collaborated with Jack Antoine Charlot, and together they created a post-apocalyptic road trip shot like a rap music video.
