Thibault Debaveye

Thibault Debaveye is a passionate film director with a gift for creating cinematic and innovative imagery born of his background in art, photography and digital production. Formerly based in Paris, Debaveye worked for seven years as a flame artist at the pioneering VFX house BUF and later moved to Los Angeles to help open their Hollywood office. He then jumped to the new Venice office of Psyop, where he was, among many other accomplishments, the VFX supervisor and Flame/2D lead on the Super Bowl 2009 Coke spot Heist, which earned Psyop and Wieden+Kennedy the Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Commercial that year.

While VFX inspires Debaveye’s approach to filmmaking, as a director he most often creates effects in-camera allowing his work to move seamlessly. He prefers to film on location often with available light, creating more depth and structure to his images. He is a master of transitions and exceptional at capturing performances. He brings to the table a toolbox of experience that serves to tell beautiful stories.
