ABOUT

Yves Geleyn was brought into the world via the love of a German lady and a French man in Reading, England (of all forgotten places). After this unfortunate false start in life and the fact that burning wax crayons and making hand paintings was his most loathed past time activity, our dear little Yves landed in Paris, the capital of culture. It is here that this now award-winning director got his start in graphic design setting the stage for his entrance into the motion arts.

 

Yves has since then gone on to direct numerous short films and short form content, many of which earning numerous international awards and accolades. Each of Yves’ projects shows us his sensibility, his

 

delicacy and poetry. His references are numerous: Japan, nature, animals, paintings and especially birds (which are present in all of his productions).

 

Abovel all, Yves considers himself a storyteller, for story and characters are the most important things to him. With a love of mixing various styles, Yves has found that the technique is always only there to serve the story. Textures, colors, forms, patterns, illustration, CG, paper cutouts and traditional animation are all in his giant toolbox of techniques.
