Guillaume Rieu

Guillaume Rieu is a French director born in 1984. While studying editing, he turned to special effects and sculpture and joined Metronomic production. He worked on several projects as a digital artist and an animator, before directing his first two short films, "Attack of the Giant Brainsucker Monster from Outer Space" (where black and white horror films meet with colorful French musicals) and "Tarim the Brave Against the Thousand and One Effects" (an Eastern adventure movie about special effects). Both of these films being successful (they were awarded in many festivals and aired on TV - on Arte, France3, France4 and Canal+), Canal+ contacted him to write and direct a third short, “MARS IV”, about the future.
