This series explores the varied and colorful roles at Technicolor Creative Studios. Spotlighting our talent and bringing their story to center stage. Here are 10 questions for the 10 years our wonderful Marketing Manager, Léa Latassa has been with us!
How would you describe your time here in 3 words?
Learning, friendships, perseverance
What was the first project you can remember being released when you joined?
Canal+ “The Bear”
Fun fact – my very first work was with the artist that you can see in this commercial that was on TV 20 times a day at the time in France: it’s Laurent Creusot, who is now a VFX Supervisor at MPC. I was super moved, stressed and honored to work with him 🙂
Your career highlight to date?
Every time I have the opportunity to accompany the artists to a conference or an award ceremony and see their eyes shine because they are proud to have achieved all this. Teamwork makes the dream work!
What inspires you?
People. Those who have an aura that makes you want to collaborate with them no matter what. The projects too: working on a film that you know is going to be a big hit when it comes out is very inspiring!
Your favorite animated character would have to be?
Baby Chase from Paw patrol
What is the most rewarding thing about being at Technicolor Creative Studios?
Some of my friends also work at Technicolor Creative Studios in Paris, whether it’s at The Mill, MPC or Mikros Animation. It’s rewarding to be all together in the same adventure, but in different roles, we complement each other and carry each other in our life journeys.
If you had taken an alternate path, what would you be doing now?
I would have been either an architect or a chef in a starred restaurant in Paris (haha)
What is your all time favorite or recent project to come out of the studios?
Asterix, the Secret of The Magic Potion!
If you could give one piece of advice to our next generation of talent what would it be?
I hate to be part of the cliché, but it’s true: hold on and believe in your dreams! My high school teachers tried to stop me from going into film because it wasn’t as prestigious as business or medical school. If you think that this is what will suit you and allow you to wake up every morning with a smile on your face: DO IT!
Your ideal next project would involve…
A trip to the other side of the world
