LE Canard à Trois pattes
Roxane Fechner, Producer/Director
My involvement with Film Production began in France in 1994, first working with Set Design departments before joining the Post Production and Visual effects teams on a number of Feature Films both in France and abroad.
I have therefore been actively involved in the film industry for 28 years — ten of those years were spent at Éclair Laboratories, in Paris, France. By trade and opportunity i have become a Visual Effects Producer. My true passion, however, is that of Story Telling. I have now directed 8 short film projects and am enthusiastic and ready for the next one.
My strong technical background as a film crew has been a great help in opening the doors to VFX. In 2010 i established a french production company in Paris by the name of ‘Le Canard à Trois Pattes’, through which i can produce and direct projects, as well as offer my VFX skills. As a VFX supervisor and producer i have had the opportunity to lead second unit teams with complex multi-cam setups, an experience i love.
In 2011, i moved to Montreal to participate in the creation of ‘Mikros Image Canada’ where, for 1 year, i had the opportunity of hiring and managing a team of 80 people while synchronously coordinating 4 projects. My second year in Montreal i began collaborating with other established Canadian VFX companies listed in my CV.
I then held the position of fiction department’s lead for two years at FIX studio for all QUAD Productions. I still work as an independant, mostly on international movies such as my last two projects for Studio Canal. This position allows me to suggest and work with any VFX company around the world, depending on the production and post-production needs.
Since 2020, I have pursued my implication in the industry by joining the board of various institutions as l’Académie des Césars, VES, France VFX and work on two commissions for the CNC.
