Joël Vaudreuil

Joël Vaudreuil is a resolutely independent multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Montreal. Adam change lentement (2023) is his first full-length animated film. Besides his numerous music videos, he also made several animated shorts such as La vie magnifique sous l’eau (2015), Le courant faible de la rivière (Jutra Award, 2013), L’enfant aux 6 hot-dogs (2011), Un vortex dans face (nominated for a Jutra Award, 2010) and La récréation du midi (2009). His unmistakable graphic style has earned him several mentions, including a retrospective at the Cinemathèque québécoise in 2017. In addition to being a witty illustrator with an often biting sense of humour, Joël Vaudreuil is also a musician, and a member of the bands Avec pas d’casque, Moussette, Le diable comme l’outil and Cheval Fou.
