13 March 2023

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’s Nicolas Guigou‘s turn, one of our great studio assistants at Mikros Animation Paris to speak! He tells us about his uncommon career and his crushes on Mikros characters:

What is the best part of your job?

It’s definitely the human contact with the teams. As a studio assistant, my tasks are often related to the well-being of the staff, welcoming and contacting the incoming artists. It’s nice to be a friendly face for them in the studio and it’s important that they feel comfortable and welcome. 

What was the first project you worked on when you joined Mikros Animation?

I came as a reinforcement for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Tiger Apprentice project ; But being in the studio team, we accompany and work with the teams of all the projects.   

Share your student and professional background to get to your position at Mikros Animation!  
Well, my background is a bit atypical, I started by studying theater while training in scriptwriting. I did some festivals as a scriptwriter and I worked in several sectors, always close to culture. I also trained in audiovisual editing, and after a year as an editorial assistant for a film magazine, I came to work at Mikros Animation!  

What inspires you or who inspires you?
Music in general, stories, rich characters, all my human relationships. And Beyoncé, of course!

If you had to be a character in Mikros Animation’s films and series, who would you be?
I must admit I have a crush on the SpongeBob movie and its characters… like Gary Pleading Face 💜

Your biggest achievement so far?
Constantly evolving, taking risks and landing on my feet. And more concretely, a trip to Italy for several months that taught me a lot and inspired me for my life.    

What would be your superpower?
Bringing in the sun every day, growing flowers, setting up deck chairs by the sea and making great cocktails!    

What advice would you give to your younger self? 
“Nico, there are some uncool things in life. But seeing all these events differently and with a smile will save you a lot of time. So let’s keep smiling!”  

It’s your turn to name someone from Mikros Animation Paris, to answer these 8 questions!  

Ah, I’ll name my wonderful colleague who works opposite me every day, Laura Baron
