Biography

Since his studies in television, Michael Lalancette directed over fifteen short films in the past decade. His latest productions (Quartet in C major, Offside, Panasony Pro V4000, The film you are the hero and Ha! Christmas!) Roam the Quebec and international festivals, in addition to being acquired by televisions. Loving the original ideas, it is in a constant concern of rhythm and aesthetics that Michael creates. He hates it when a spectator's bored and wants to see rather shoot a smile!
