GROUPE PVP DRAWS STRENGTH FROM THE FUSION OF ITS FOUR DEPARTMENTS:
ANIMATION, DOCUMENTARY, FICTION and DIGITAL MEDIA.
Groupe PVP’s core business is the production of documentary films, animation, and fiction, complemented by our expertise in digital media, games, and information technology.
Well established in the world of cinema, television, and digital media for over 30 years, Groupe PVP sprang from founder Vic Pelletier’s passion for images. Since its creation, the company has evolved, adapted and successfully diversified to meet the needs of a constantly evolving market.
Today, Groupe PVP has a firm foothold in Canada and internationally, thanks to the talents of a team that extends to more than sixty colleagues sharing the same strong work ethic and quest for quality. Over the years, the production company has earned an array of awards and accolades.
Vincent Leroux joined the team at the end of 2001, following a career working for major Quebec accounting firms. A member of the Quebec Charter of Professional Accountants since 1995, he has contributed to the development of the company, chiefly by dealing with the financial aspect and overall management of Groupe PVP.
Vincent Leroux acts as Executive Producer on all projects and Producer on numerous documentary projects.
François Trudel has been an active member of the animation industry for over 20 years. Before joining the ranks of Groupe PVP in the summer of 2004, he worked as a studio director, director of production and development analyst for the CinéGroupe Corporation.
With sixteen series, three TV specials and a feature-length film to his credit, he also set up a digital animation studio in HCMC, Vietnam, in 2011. As Vice-President and Producer, François develops and produces Groupe PVP’s animation projects.
François is in charge of the creation, development, financing, production and marketing of Groupe PVP’s animation projects.
Vic Pelletier is the founder of Groupe PVP. His career really took off in 1976 with the production of three documentaries in collaboration with the National Film Board.
Later, in 1985, he founded his own company and earned a reputation through fascinating series and documentary films, many of which explore the Great North. Over the years, Vic Pelletier has acquired a rich experience in the television industry, producing over 45 projects both nationally and internationally.
Groupe PVP’s pioneer for documentaries, Robert Tremblay is a man of many talents.
Presenter, interviewer, researcher, screenwriter and director, he knows the world of television better than anyone. In addition to these roles, he’s also actively involved in the development of many documentary projects.
Loved for his charisma, he has presented many documentary series, and contributed to numerous other projects.
Insatiably curious and passionate about humans, Karina Marceau has carried her camera and microphone all around the world, working in over 40 countries before coming home to Quebec, where she has been based for several years.
Reporter (TQS, TVA), newsreader (LCN, TVA), presenter (TVA, RDI, SRC, TV5, TQc), and documentary maker, this never-wavering journalist, director and producer goes where the most groundbreaking stories take her.
Hobby photographer, full-time movie buff, music lover and sports fan, this avid reader and multiple-award-winner tackles unexplored issues with sensitivity and intelligence.
Éli Laliberté has dedicated over 25 years of his life to television documentary production. In 2017, he was awarded a Gémeaux Award for best documentary cinematography for his work on 1000 Jours pour la planète, and was nominated, in 2018, for a Canadian Screen Award for best factual series for his last production, Konnected.tv. This multi-skilled individual works as a screenwriter, director and director of photography, and recently became a producer.
Having explored the four corners of the Earth, Éli is particularly concerned about the environment, the social issues of our time, and the development of Indigenous populations. Through his many projects, his respect and his understanding, Éli Laliberté has been guiding his relationships with the many people he films and works with.
