Animation exec joins Paris-based animation studio as Development Manager; previous roles include overseeing animated and live-action series at Disney France and developing Studio Redfrog’s kids’ series ‘Smarty Pants.’
Paris-based independent animation studio Millimages has added Clément Le Strat to its development team as Development Manager. Le Strat will report to Producer and head of the development division, Bonnie Lener.
Clément has worked in the animation industry since 2004, including an 11-year stint at Disney France, where he served as Program Development Manager and Editorial Advisor overseeing animated and live-action series. Most recently, from 2019-2023, he managed development at Studio Redfrog on series such as the award-winning animated children’s series Smarty Pants.
“We are delighted to add such a qualified and talented new member to our team,” commented Lener. “Clément is experienced in developing older-skewing series; his arrival consolidates our new editorial strategy, which aims to continue developing preschool projects but also to expand our content to target both kids and adults.”
“It is a very exciting opportunity to join one of the most iconic and ground-breaking independent studios in France,” added Le Strat. “I am really looking forward to working with Millimages’ creative talent and helping to expand the scope of their amazing catalogue.”
Lener and Le Strat will represent Millimages at the Annecy Animation Festival 2023, which runs June 11-17.
