Arnaud Demuynck is a film director, producer and scriptwriter specialized in short and medium-length animated films (and producing 5 to 6 films on average each year). Since his L'Écluse (The Lock), a short choreographic fiction film made in 2000, he has written and directed many animated films, including a choreographic trilogy made up of SIGNS OF LIFE (2004), THE SHADOW OF THE VEIL (2006) and BREAKOUT (2007), followed by a poetic trilogy co-directed with Christophe Gautry (LA VITA NUOVA, THE LUNATIC COUNCIL and AN INTERRUPTED SPECTACLE). With UNDER BLUE SKIES, he started writing films for younger audiences, either based on traditional stories and nursery rhymes (THE MITTEN, THE GIANT CARROT, THE LAWS OF THE JUNGLE, THE RUNAWAY BISCUIT), or adapting kid's books to animation (COUNTING SHEEP, DRAGON HUNT, THE UNICORN, UN TRAVAIL DE FOURMIS). He is also the author of the original scripts of two 26 minute films: THE SCENT OF CARROTS (co-directed with Rémi Durin, and attracting over 170,000 viewers) and THE WIND IN THE REEDS (co-directed with Nicolas Liguori, currently in production), both of which have a strong focus on the musical content.
