The PROD Bootcamp

Hi! I'm Virginie, creator of the PROD Bootcamp

I am an Animation Producer from Montreal, Canada.
I have worked on some of the most exciting properties with globally renowned partners and clients like Disney and HBO.

I have taught dozens of coordinators, project managers, and line producers strong management principles for happy animation production.

Believe me; I know firsthand how challenging it can be to train your team while managing a full-time production! But I also know firsthand how important training and growth are to my team’s productivity, motivation and efficiency.

That's why I created the PROD Bootcamp

for busy Animation studios who want to help their production assistants, coordinators, and project managers of all levels learn the mindset and skillset for low-stress and high-efficiency projects.
