Virginie grew up in France between two worlds, a wild and artistic one on one side and an entrepreneurial one on the other.
After 7 years of in-depth academic art and communication studies, she developed her skillset exploring different visual fields such as advertising and animation before dedicating herself to high-end VFX for Hollywood movies. Virginie created and managed the first film art department for leading VFX house MPC, where she was Head of Department and VFX Art Director for almost ten years. Her experience allowed her to develop efficient creative processes for the visual effects industry, with a focus on artist development.
After a yearlong worldwide conference tour, Virginie launched Art of Direction in 2015, a limited company producing concept art for film preproduction. Since then, AOD has successfully completed several major productions, drawing from a deep pool of international artists. AOD constitutes a flexible virtual art department, able to answer to the most demanding high-end productions. This allows Virginie and her staff to satisfy an insatiable curiosity for novelty, creative processes and storytelling design.
