An immersive entertainment revolutionary, Paul is an Emmy Award-winning and Oscar- nominated filmmaker, visual artist, director and studio head.

He combines creative and technological innovation to explore ever-evolving forms of storytelling and is known for his projects’ remarkable ingenuity. In an over decade-long collaboration with his Felix & Paul Studios co-founder Félix Lajeunesse, he designed the camera technologies that brought the duo’s concepts to life, starting with the first ever cinematic VR experience, Strangers with Patrick Watson — the project that launched Felix & Paul Studios in 2013.

Since then, Paul has co-directed and overseen the creative direction of the studio’s over 30 projects, including The People’s House, a collaboration with former-President Barack Obama, Traveling While Black with Roger Ross Williams, Gymnasia with the NFB and Clyde Henry Productions, and Space Explorers: The ISS Experience a collaboration with NASA and TIME filmed aboard the International Space Station, using specialized cameras. This latest production has become the largest media project ever filmed in space and has been adapted into an immersive touring experience, Space Explorers: THE INFINITE.
