  • Jean-Martin Gagnon

    Jean-Martin has been directing fictional short films, documentaries and music videos since 2014. A member of the Coop Vidéo since 2016, he's also been a first assistant director to Robert Morin. His short films Puisqu'on se tue toujours trop tard and Pharmakon have been presented at the Saguenay International Short Film Festival, where Pharmakon won the UnisTV Audience Award in 2021.

  • Guillaume Harvey

    Working social satyre as much as dramatic comedy, Guillaume Harvey likes to take a mildly distanced look, tinted with humour, on topics that are important to him.
