Alban Lelièvre

Alban Lelièvre

Alban Lelievre was all set to pursue his career as a tortured & cynical comic book illustrator – which a degree at Saint Luc in Brussels was all about to confirm. However, after coming back to the motherland (France), he decided to pursue what he calls a “real” career, as an 3D animator. After working a year at the CWI in Amsterdam, he goes back to school as parisien based school Méliès, confirming his desire to pursue this new direction. Out of school he joined Buf, before working in prestigious studios such as Duran and Mikros. In 2008 he launched a directors’ collective called Planktoon, with which he’ll work on campaigns for Canal +, M&Ms, and Carrefour among many others – 10 years later, he continues to direct, but this time solo. Still as cynical, but clearly not tortured.
