Jean-François Sauvé

Soon after graduation, Jean-François was directing a television show on new music in Toronto. A die-hard Montrealer, he witnessed the rising tide of talent and opportunities coming out of his hometown and decided to go home where he generated his own wave of music videos for small and big stars of Quebec’s pop music industry. Though he is not a composer, the time he spent writing rap songs as a teenager has had a clear influence on him. He recently added feathers to his cap by directing ads and taking pictures. His motivation? Creating innovation. When he closes his eyes, he likes to think about people, beauty, and improbable things. Could he win an Oscar in five years? Why not?
