Yves Geleyn

After studying art in Paris, Yves Geleyn started as a freelance graphic designer. But it was with animation that Yves fully began expressing himself. Soot Giant, a story of a long-legged giant that wanders the street at dusk, was one of his first animated creations that completely turned him towards motion. Since then he has continuously developed his style on many award winning projects and recently created a lyrical mystery piece with enigmatic weightless forms and a bestiary of magic creatures for La Gaîté Lyrique. Yves considers himself not as a director but rather a storyteller; for story and characters are the most important things to him.
