as Animator

Max & Co is a 2007 stop-motion animated feature film directed by swiss directors Fred and Sam Guillaume, released in Belgium, France, and Switzerland in February 2008.
It won the Audience Award at the 2007 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.


15-year-old Max sets off for Saint-Hilare in search of his father, the famous troubadour Johnny Bigoude, who disappeared shortly before Max’s birth. He is waylaid by Sam, a rascally fairground entertainer, and introduced to the delights of the amazing Fly Swatter Festival. When Max finally gets there, Saint-Hilaire turns out to be the private kingdom of Bzzz & Co., infamous manufacturers of flyswatters, run by the degenerate Rodolfo. Musical virtuoso Max makes a big impression, especially on smart, lovely, resourceful Felicie, who convinces Rodolfo to hire him.
