Elise Bernateau

Elise’s passion for animated movies started at a very young age and never left - in High School she directed a visual adaptation of a poem from Baudelaire, which was already an award winning short! Starting with intensive literary studies, she decided to simultaneously enter an animation school, and 3 years later, she received not one, but two diplomas : in animation and philosophy. (you know, just in case)
Right out of school, she started working with Universal studios, and was part of The Minions and The Secret Life of Pets’ teams. At the same time, she was noticed by director collective Planktoon, and started collaborating with them on various projects : commercials, short films and music videos.
Elise’s childhood passion turned into her dream job as she joined Jungler in 2017 as a Director, with a focus on realistic imagery, but always with a touch of onirism and a little touch of quirky.

And Elise just recently obtained a Master degree in Botany – congrats !
