Jim Le Fevre
Smith & Foulkes
Tom and Mark
Philippe’s career has come full circle, having first started directing commercials before turning his attention to the then-emerging area of digital post and directing special effects until 2000. His first short, Gouill & Gar, in 2000 saw him return to directing animation, not to mention getting selected in over 100 festivals around the globe and winning prizes at 22 of them. Philippe opened his own animation studio, Space Patrol, in 2004 and has worked on commercials for blue-chip clients including Nescafe, Kellogg’s and Danone.
His absolute mastery of CGI animation, not to mention his expertise directing special effects, can be witnessed to maximum jaw-dropping effect in his latest short, ‘The Chase’.
