We are Flamboyant Paradise, the alliance of award winning directors Javier Lourenço & Antoine Quairiat. We are a creative film-making team that helps brands and agencies connect with consumers.
We focus on outstanding art direction and provocative storytelling. We create top-notch animations and unusual live action.
We develop incredible characters and their unique worlds. We produce fluffy emotions, colorful palettes and sunny smiles.
Our work philosophy stems from the belief that outstanding work comes from the collaboration of passionate artists. We take each project on as a new challenge to develop cutting edge techniques and original narratives. We care above all about the happiness of our agencies, clients and production team. We believe great art is possible only by also committing to clear production schedules and deadlines.
Founded in 2009, the Flamboyant Paradise headquarters are based in Buenos Aires, Argentina and has international representation in Europe, US & Brazil, among other countries.
In late 2013 we joined production forces with 4HUMANS, a brand-new animation & production company founded by acclaimed executive producers Franco Bittolo (CEO, Bitt Animation) and Patricio Verdi (former partner at Punga Visual Consortio)
