I'm an animator and filmmaker based in Montreal.
I've directed a number of award-winning shorts and films produced by the National Film Board of Canada.
Caricature, distortion, exaggeration...
I like skewing the way we look at ourselves,
creating characters and worlds that are beautifully grotesque.
Traditional art meets proceduralism
My work brings together artistry, technical direction and storytelling.
Directed by David Barlow-Krelina, Produced by Jelena Popovic
2018 National Film Board of Canada
A prescient Grotesque Sci-Fi satire that lifts plastic surgery to another level. Set in a state-of-the- art clinic, new standards of beauty and prestige have been cultivated by advanced technologies. A sardonic take on beauty ideologies blown out of proportion.
I wanted to make a modern 3D animation that re-discovered the classical notion of "squash and stretch".
WORK IN PROGRESS
Sometimes I post snapshots of my projects at various points along the way.
Technical notes, trial and error,
films in development...
Images from sketchbooks and personal projects (2017-present)
Illustration, animation, 2D/3D,
