VFX Supervisor

Alexandre Lafortune started his career on spinning wheels with a first project in which he created, scripted and directed a commercial for non-profit Tel-Jeunes organization with the Softimage team. Freshly out of school, Alexandre did not waste any time.

Successive mandates from 1994 to 1997 enabled him to confirm an undeniable polyvalence: Big Bang, Innovitech, which was preparing a production for the universal exhibition of Lisbon, NAD Centre to teach Softimage 3D, Enzyme Digital Marketing; Buzz Image Group on the Johnny Quest project and then the TV series production of Barbe Rouge at Productions Roger Héroux.

Afterwards, Alexandre worked 4 years at Voodoo Media Arts as Senior 3D Animator where he collaborated on numerous TV advertisement messages for clients such as Tropicana, Canon, Molson, Rogers, Cherrios and Lucky Charms. In 2001, he joined Buzz Image Group, one of the most important post houses in Quebec. For 8 years, he worked at Oblique FX as VFX Supervisor. He has worked on several significant feature film projects such as Arrival, Sicario, Source Code (nominated for a VES Award), Mister Nobody, The Fountain, Brokeback Mountain, Stay, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Extreme Ops and TV ad campaigns for clients such as Ford, Toyota, Bell, Discovery Channel and YTV. More recently, at Rodeo FX, he contributed to the Fate of the Furious as a Composition Supervisor, and to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Kong: Skull Island and Soldado as VFX Supervisor. He is currently working on Eli Roth’s The House with a Clock in its Walls.
