The two founders are known in the industry as innovative leaders.

Their years of experience are paying off, and they are often inspired by techniques they learned in major studios and adapt them to nGenious.

We also have our own state of the art GPU rendering farm, and the highest standards in security for in-house and remote work.

Combine all of these factors with the creativity, experience, and ingenuity of a top-notch team, and you have what is arguably the best kept secret in the animation industry.

éric gervais-després

"Having worked closely with Eric Gervais-Despres, I am convinced that his genius lies is in his ability to transform a sterile digital world into one that is vibrant and convincing" — Glen Keane

He is without a doubt regarded as a pioneer of the digital animation industry in Quebec.
His role with Softimage in the early 90s changed forever how visual effects and animation were done.

Later, he moved to the US, where he worked on big projects, including many years at Walt Disney Feature Animation during the period known as the Disney Renaissance.

He returned to Canada in the mid-2000's to share his newly acquired knowledge. He kept busy by participating in numerous local and international productions.

After completing 16 animated full-length features, he cofounded nGenious with Benoit in 2016, hoping to offer a more efficient way to create animation.


Benoît parent

With a wide and diversified skill set in multi media technical production, Benoit has a lot to offer.

As an expert in managing technical environments and quality control for software development and image creation, he has been serving the industry for more than 35 years.

This inventor is dedicated to solving the most difficult technical challenges. He has worked on multiple projects throughout the world, including Olympic Games, trade shows in the US, Europe and Asia, television stations, post-production houses, and software firms, such as Autodesk.

Despite all the years, he continues to learn and enjoys helping others. As co-founder of nGenious, he created his own innovation sandbox (or playground), making a safe and creative environment for artists and clients alike.
