These include the EMMY Award–winning interactive feature The People’s House with President Barack Obama, the original VR fiction/feature experience Miyubi starring Jeff Goldblum, and the Space Explorers series in collaboration with NASA. Félix also shares his knowledge and expertise with a bold new generation of creators including Oscar-winning Director, Roger Ross Williams on Traveling While Black , NFB/Clyde Henry Productions on Gymnasia , and the team at TIME Studios on the latest season of Space Explorers entitled The ISS Experience. Whether leading the creative team at Felix & Paul Studios, directing or producing, Félix Lajeunesse continues to push the boundaries of interactive storytelling while charting a new course for presence-based, emotionally powerful artistic entertainment.

The Emmy® Award-winning filmmaker, visual artist, director and studio head is known for his projects’ remarkable sense of presence and ingenuity.
