Director Biography - Emilie Tousignant

Emilie is a visual development artist from a tiny town in New England. Growing up, she was always encouraged by her parents to play softball, which instilled a love for the thrill of competition and a life-long appreciation for team sports. In high school, she had to make the hard decision to give up playing college softball for her other passion; art. At Savannah College of Art and Design (which unfortunately doesn’t have a softball team), Emilie pursued a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Animation, where she fell in love with the idea of world-building and pre-production development. She graduated in May 2021 with a focus on concept development for animation and games. When she isn’t working on developing her latest stories, she enjoys baking, sports, and exploring cemeteries with friends.

Director Statement

"Working on Feint of Heart has been an incredible experience! The best part, in my opinion, was working with new people and learning new things as production progressed. There’s not a single one of us who didn’t come out of this production with more knowledge than we walked in with, and that’s something to be extremely proud of. I was lucky to be able to work with such a wonderful crew!"
