Created in 2014 by Romuald Drouillard and Arnaud Bois, M'A is a company specialising in the production, design, and production of animated series and films. M'A wants to tell interesting stories, with beautiful graphics, and to that end we have put in place the best creative processes possible.
by creating production pipelines for the implementation of the various production stages."
With more than fifteen years of experience in the supervision of feature films and series in France and abroad, we made the observation that time and costs in animated productions could be optimised.
Our solution: a new and proven method to anticipate the needs of the project and optimise the essential interactions between pre-production, production and post-production.
We will be with you from the pre-production to the post-production phase.
At M'A we use software that we consider as tools, making sure we use the right tool for each task.
For us, optimising a production means thinking about the specific interactions between the various tasks and the particular use of each piece of software.
Everything is a matter of cost related to technical mastery in order to serve a specific graphic aim.
Along the way, we have built up a strong and extensive network of talented technicians and graphic designers, many of whom live in the provinces.
We decided to base ourselves in Angoulême where there is a large concentration of established professionals.
We are also trainers in the two local animation schools, the Animation Film School (EMCA) and the ATELIER.
This makes it possible for us to put together strong teams that combine the experience and knowledge of older professionals and the dynamism of young people.
