Auriga was founded in 1982 by François Ouimet, who began his career working as an assistant director, studio director and executive producer. During his formative years, François’ talents brought him to collaborate with such luminaries as Luc Besson, Gilles Carle, and Gérard Jugnot. In the early 90’s he joined forces with the team at Fabrique d’Images taking on the roles of Director and Executive Producer. To date, François has directed and produced many types of projects including television series (see Trail Side Adventure), corporate messaging videos, documentaries and, his passion: commercials.
