The Creative Leader

A leadership course tailored specifically to the challenges of animation and visual effects studios

As a team lead, supervisor, or crew member in this fast-paced creative environment, you know the exhilaration of seeing your work on the big screen.

But you also understand the pressure to deliver excellence on tight deadlines, the demands of managing diverse teams, and the constant juggling act between creativity and efficiency. 

You know that behind the scenes, there's a unique set of challenges that often go unnoticed—the stress, the long hours, and the relentless pace that can leave even the most passionate professionals feeling drained and overwhelmed.

We are two human-centric Animation Producers with over twenty years of experience in the industry.

Hi! We are LP and Virginie, 

the instructors behind The Creative Leader course.

We are two human-centric Animation Producers with over twenty years of experience in the industry.

LP is an artist turned Producer, while Virginie is a vocational producer. We teach team leads and production crews the mindset and skillset for more productive and less stressful productions.

 

The truth is 

we wish we had access to more training and support to learn healthy management and leadership skills sooner. 

Because we know firsthand how training makes us more productive, innovative, creative, and profitable while lowering stress and enhancing a sense of accomplishment.

Not to mention that the #1 reason people quit is because of their leader. Employee turnover can cost up to 50% of the person's salary. OUCH!

That's why we created The Creative Leader course 

For a  chance to lead with confidence, to foster inclusivity, and to reclaim your work-life balance.

I Want This!

This course is for aspiring team leads, supervisors, and production crews who want to:

Call me LP!

I am an artist that became a leader. I started my journey in animation 25 years ago, and I did not expect what life had in store for me!

From storyboard artist to executive producer, I experienced every aspect of animation production.

With my partner Virginie, we founded The Happy Producers to offer our experience and help other growth-seeking leaders find their way toward human-driven leadership without compromising the people or the project.

In addition to my mission as a Happy Producer, I am the Canadian co-producer of 10 Lives in collaboration with GFM Animation and the line producer of The Last Whale Singer, a Canadian/German/Czech co-production.

I put my experience at the service of everyone in my productions, and I wish to offer you the same insight and the same positive attitude I offer my colleagues daily.
