Joanna Celse (english version)

Jo has been passionate about drawing since childhood. Initially determined to start her career in video games as a chara-designer, she quickly discovered she was enchanted by the world of animation. After a short training in a DMA animation cinema at the Marie Curie high school in Marseille, and a year of 3D training at the Supinfocom school in Arles, she naturally turned to traditional 2D animation.

She then spent 10 years exploring the animation industry, from layout to cut-out animation, including storyboarding and character design in both 3D and 2D, before settling on storyboarding as her main activity ; at Zagtoon on Miraculous Ladybug, Warner Bros on Batwheels, or at Bobby Pills on Captain Laserhawk.

In 2021, she started her career as a director at Bobby Pills on two projects mixing video games and animation, her two main passions. Thanks to these fruitful experiences, she was offered the direction of one of the first French animated series for young adults, Dreamland, at La Chouette Compagnie.

With a great experience in several sectors and very versatile, her favorite field is above all works of japanim inspiration. Bilingual by birth, she usually works with foreign productions, especially American ones.
