Mikros Animation Paris’ teams under the Mikroscope! We asked them 8 questions so that you can get to know them, their world and their successes. At the end, they in turn pass the baton to one of their colleagues so that another person can answer the same questions!
It is now the turn of Camille Ringuet, CFX Production Assistant:
What is the best part of your job?
Definitely the human side! I am constantly surrounded in my work, and it is amazing to feel supported.
I have the chance to work directly with the teams, as well as the heads of the departments, which means I learn a lot about production but also about the very technical side of the business, which is exciting.
What was the first project you worked on when you joined Mikros Animation?
I joined Mikros as a production assistant on The Tiger’s Apprentice. It was a great experience, I got to meet so many wonderful people.
Share your student and professional path to your position at Mikros Animation!
My career path does not correspond to the position I currently have!
I studied 2D Animation at LISAA, I originally wanted to be a 2D animator. During my student projects with my classmates, I had the opportunity to take care of the production of our short films on many occasions, and I really enjoyed it!
From there, I did an internship in Production, while helping in 2D Animation. Working in these 2 positions confirmed that I wanted to pursue a career in Production.
What inspires you or who inspires you?
The end results! I love cartoons, I grew up with them and I have never lost that passion. The fact of working on a film or a series that will be watched by children, and that will eventually leave its mark on them as cartoons have left their mark on me, is in my opinion the most beautiful thing in this business.
If you had to be a character in Mikros Animation’s films and series, who would you be?
Grandma Lin in Tiger’s Apprentice! She’s a grandmother who does magic and kung fu, what more could you ask for?
Your biggest achievement so far?
Being able to understand (part of) the technical language of 3D! Having studied 2D animation, I had an overall knowledge of the 3D production pipeline, but it turns out that the 2 Animation techniques are fundamentally different. Being able to understand technical 3D discussions has taken me a while, and I still have a lot to learn, but I’m proud of where I am now.
What would be your superpower?
The power to make my colleagues smile with pastries and other goodies in the morning. Wonder-Woman-Croissant?
What advice would you give to your younger self?
I would tell her not to be afraid to give her opinion, because despite what we tend to think, there are many people willing to listen to us. Whether it’s to improve processes or just to share an opinion, there’s always someone to listen, and even if it doesn’t always lead to action, it allows you to evolve in your work and to have more confidence.
It’s your turn to name someone from Mikros Animation Paris, to answer these 8 questions!
Let’s go Johanna Pichard. It’s your turn!
