Our team at Lightning Boy Studio is made of three people : David Forest, Carl Beauchemin and Thomas Chrétien.
We are three friends who met when we were studying 3D animation in Montreal city. We quickly realized that we would make a great team and since then our goal has been to work with each other and make the best movies possible. Le Gouffre is the first official project we did together.
When developing projects together, our biggest focus is the story. A good story resonates with people, and we want to share emotions and feelings with the world when we make a movie. Of course, pretty images, good acting and good animation are all important when making an animated film, but everything will be meaningless if the core of the story isn't good. That's why we spent 6 months refining our story before starting to work full time on Le Gouffre.
Art can be many things, and can be used to express almost anything. But the art that resonates the most with us is the art of storytelling. How to use both sound and image to communicate ideas with people that might not even speak the same language as you. Storytelling is among the oldest art forms, it is part of human nature to tell stories, and it is what pushes us at Lightning Boy Studio to do art.
