Glenn Paul-Parvenu is a recent graduate of Institut Sainte-Geneviève, born on August 8, 2000. His fascination with the visual arts was initiated during his high school education, where he earned an AMA vocational diploma in visual and multi-media communication from 2015 to 2018. It was there that he had his first contact with the field of visual arts.
His thirst for knowledge led him to continue his studies in DNMADE responsible graphic design from 2018 to 2021. During this period, he developed his creativity and organizational skills, although he was not completely satisfied with the diploma. This prompted him to undertake a self-taught apprenticeship in animation.
In 2021, he was admitted directly to the second year of the DNMADE animation cinema program at Institut Sainte-Geneviève. This opportunity enabled him to discover the field of animated film and master the techniques associated with it.
His debut in the animation industry was marked by his selection as one of the 15 finalists in the young talent competition at the 2019 "Quai des bulles" comic book festival in Saint-Malo, on the theme of artificial intelligence. It was on this occasion that he produced his first script. In 2020, he completed an internship at the stop-motion animation studio "Manuel Cam", sharpening his interest in this technique.
In 2021, he reached a milestone by making his first stop motion short film entitled "Le temps qui prend", a dark fantasy tale lasting 1 minute and 42 seconds. His interest in stop-motion animation was born. The following year, in 2022, Glenn deepened his knowledge of the animation industry during an internship at the 2D animation studio "GO-N".
In 2023, he directed his graduation film and first 2D animated feature, "The time botanist", a 4-minute sci-fi film inspired by 1930s American cartoons.
He currently works part-time, devoting the rest of his time to writing and directing his animation projects.
His style is characterized by a passion for fantasy and science fiction, sometimes influenced by old American cartoons. He attaches great importance to creating unique atmospheres and moods through color, lighting, image texture and contrast, striving to create unique and memorable cinematic experiences. To date, he has worked extensively with digital tools, but is keen to return to more traditional animation and tools.
His writing is marked by the use of symbolism and a fascination with consciousness, mind and time. He is increasingly seeking to combine his rather rough drawing style with animation.
His influences include filmmakers such as Robert Valley and Denis Villeneuve, science-fiction writers like Greg Egan and Ted Chiang, and composers like John D. Boswell and Hans Zimmer.
Outside of animation, Glenn Paul-Parvenu's interests include sculpture and musical composition. He likes to see his projects through to the end, always choosing quality over quantity, and his determination guides him in his quest to become a renowned writer-director in the world of animation.
