If you are interested in a well rounded and in depth study of lighting, Frederic will be an amazing mentor! He is open to up to three mentees from anywhere in the world, and is also fluent in French. A great opportunity for potential lighting mentees! We know there’s always a need for Lighting Artists in the film and animation industry, and having such a well versed Mentor will do wonders for helping an aspiring artist improve their work.
Frederic seems to do everything! Outside of working as a Lighter, he is also a teacher, and a writer of three books about lighting. When he’s not on the computer, he also likes to create pop-up books! As a mentee with Frederic, you can expect a well rounded mentorship that you won’t find anywhere else.
