Cyber Group Studios has strengthened its production teams to address the growth and complexity of its current and future slate, announcing the hiring of Stéphanie Baclet as Head of Productions at the new studio in Tourcoing (Hauts-de- France region), and Caroline Audebert as Head of Productions based in Paris.
Caroline Audebert has previously worked with Superprod, Gaumont Animation, CISCO and is a former ESRA professor of 3D/CGI. As Head of Productions, based in Paris, she will coordinate all the productions in progress and supervise all directors and production managers. As a 3D specialist, she joins the company at a time when CGI developments are a key to its ongoing activity.
Stéphanie Baclet joins the company to develop its new studio based in Tourcoing. With experience as Studio Director and Director of the Cinema and Audiovisual Divisions of Ankama and Delegate Producer at TF1 Production, Baclet will develop the activity of Cyber Group Studios in the Hauts-de- France region and will provide support to the Paris studio on a number of productions. As a 3D and 2D digital specialist and producer herself, Baclet brings additional expertise to the Cyber Group Studios’ teams, especially in 2D and animated feature films.
Olivier Lelardoux, SVP and Associate Producer, says:
“I am particularly happy and proud that talents such as Stéphanie Baclet and Caroline Audebert have decided to join the company, especially right now. This is a key moment for Cyber Group Studios which expands its development in France and abroad, particularly in Los Angeles with our new American subsidiary. With Stéphanie Baclet, Caroline Audebert, and Jacques Romeu, Director of studio developments, the company is well armed to face the challenges of the coming years.”
