Karine Lanoie-Brien

Karine Lanoie-Brien, a.k.a. K, is a multidisciplinary creator who has been working in the communications and visual arts industries since 1997. She got her start as an animator and researcher in television before turning to artistic direction and directing. She’s created several projects that explored the relationship between humans and their environment, a passion that gave rise to fundraising events like Le soir de la Terre, concerts like Défi pour la Terre, le show!, and documentaries like Reeves, Suzuki et nous (2014), which focused on a virtual conversation between the two noted ecologists. Expo 67 Live is her first project with the NFB.

René Chénier

René Chénier has a long and impressive track record. Before joining the NFB, he helped produce numerous fiction features, including The Necessities of Life (2008), which was short-listed for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar® and won the Jutra Award for best film in 2009. As an independent producer, his credits include the musical fantasy Hugo and the Dragon (2001), winner of the Telefilm Canada Prize for Best Independent Canadian Production in French at the Banff Television Festival. At the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), he served as the French Animation Studio’s Executive Producer from 2006 to 2014 before being appointed Executive Producer, Special Projects, for the Institutional Program.

The works he has produced at the NFB have won numerous awards, including two prestigious Lumieres—one for ORA (2011), one for CODA (2014)—from the Los Angeles-based International 3D Society. Other noteworthy projects include the immersive Impressions/Glimpses, projected onto a semi-circular screen in the Canadian pavilion at the 2010 World’s Fair in Shanghai, and Kyma, the first original NFB fulldome production, currently playing at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium/Space for Life.

As a producer, Chénier puts R&D to work for the projects and their creators. His extensive knowledge of film production (both fiction and animation), narrative forms and technology (infrared, image compositing, stereoscopic production, semi-circular and hemispherical projection) have paved the way for a groundbreaking project like Expo 67 Live, another first in the art of storytelling.
