ÉLIANE MARIE-NICOLE MATHIEU MCLEOD
A stop-motion movie Director and Producer from the Ottawa region, Ellie (Lélé) has studied puppet making and theater with many great artists through the Quebec Association of Puppeteers and with UQAM since 2011. These include Duda Paiva, Marcelle Hudon, Francis Monty and Olivier Ducas, Diane Bouchard, Espace Art-Nature, and CINARS.
In 2015, Ellie produced a full-length short stop-motion movie, La divine comédie du Chaperon Rouge, for the Festival de Casteliers. She also produced a three-night solo performance of her handwritten play, Déƒƒranchie, for which she also made her first 2D animation as both a teaser and composed music.
Having worked on co-creating a number of plays and assisting in the creation of an international congress, she has contributed her multiple talents to many diverse projects.
She has worked on Hacking Health Montréal (designers to help Health Care services), 350.org (a climate change letter to the Prime Minister through a Henry Roy Vickers original reconstruction), and Le LAB-CIPTO (creation for everyone) where she developed the ideas for workshops on puppetry and stop-motion movies in a sustainable and fulfilling way.
Her love of scenery and passion for the great outdoors brought her to the community of Squamish nestled between mountains and forest where each tree holds a secret she hopes to discover, and convey, with you.
