Arnault Labaronne Film Director

Arnault was born in 1972. After a first 52-minute docudrama for French television at the age of 24, he started his career as a fiction film director. He directed his first 35mm short film, APPEL D’AIR in 2001 with a real talent in actor direction, photography and suspense. It was the first step into fiction film exploration of genres (poetic, fantastic, intimate, action, sci-fi, snuff, comedy, musical, spy, combats) in 10 short films that have been selected in more than 60 international film festivals and have won ten prices. It ends with the creation of the first thriller feature made with a cell phone, GOD IN MY POCKET, screened at Centre Georges Pompidou in 2006. Arnault's innovative approach to both subject matter and artistic choices remains utterly eclectic.
Since then, Arnault used to work as an independent filmmaker for television shows, documentaries, commercials, music videos, web series, transmedia, motion design, video art and virtual reality… Between 2000 and 2010, he also used to work as a coach or artistic director for BORDERS, a collaborative fiction project all over Europe and for numerous other audiovisual programs and schools.

Interested in all new types of narration, he worked 5 years for Ubisoft AAA games, collaborating on naval parts of ASSASSIN’S CREED, but also on DRIVER SAN FRANCISCO, FAR CRY 3, THE CREW WILD RUN, and SKULL AND BONES. As a production director, creative director, or sometimes only brand developer, he aimed at creating systemic narration, reinforcing the emotion and the immersion of the gamer experience.
Today, Arnault is very curious about new technologies that he considers as a new way to express his art. He is now ready for all new challenges brought by stereoscopy, augmented and virtual reality.

Testimonials

Arnault used his cinema knowledge to nourish our cinematics and E3 trailers (from casting to direction and script supervision to storyboards, camera, lights and audio). His input into the systemic aspect of our games was even more significant. He helped to develop rich open worlds, creating narrative bibles and mood boards. He also worked to develop the identity and the quality of our brands through exploration and innovative prototypes. Finally, he contributed to enrich our players’ lives by working more emotions into gameplay.
After his last missions in Singapore and Lyon Studios as a Production Director and a Creative Director, I know he has all the skills and drive to push creativity to new limits.
