Who are you and what’s your filmmaking background?
My name is Heloise Magny and I was born in Montreal, Quebec. I am a graduate from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco in visual effects. At the Academy of Art, I also studied screenwriting. From there I worked on many projects, such as my first short film I recently directed, Helena’s Dream. I own my own visual effects company, Digital Griffix, selling 3D models and making my own 3D animated films.
What are you working on right now?
I am working on an animated film named Keep Painting Mom, about a depressed teenager fighting his dark side.
What do you want the audience to take away from your films?
I hope to create 3D animated films that will inspire and help people. Films helped me get through difficult phases of my life, so I would like to do the same and help people the same way.
What are your wildest dreams for your filmmaking career?
I would like to have enough financing to produce and direct several full-length animated films.
What currently inspires you?
I love the style of Tim Burton’s films, and wish to create entertaining films like he does.
What’s your best advice for an aspiring filmmaker?
Start your first project and do not delay! The more you make films, the better you’ll get. Don’t expect your first one to necessarily win a lot of awards. It comes with time, and practice.
