Pierre Michel-Estival

Pierre Michel-Estival weaves live action and CG masterfully to create pieces that float somewhere between reality and dreams. His style has developed over ten years of working in advertising and making films. Pierre started his career in 2001 as a digital artist at Mikros Image working on commercials for Heineken, L'Oréal, Sfr, Peugeot and other top brands, and more than thirty feature films including Oliver Stone's "Alexander" and Jacques Perrin's ecological drama "Oceans." His work also includes the 40th anniversary of Ralph Lauren's work, the Grand Odyssey for the 2005 World Expo, and other advertising campaigns. In 2006 Pierre created the opening film "Polar" for the French film festival of the same name, which played at theaters across Paris and on television, and caught the attention of Paris/NY production company Paranoid. Projects including "Planet Ocean" for Swiss watchmaker Omega, "Fire Flower," for French jeweler Loris, and AVP, a promo I.D. for New York's Aesthetic Vision Productions, exemplify his unique style.
