The Art of Direction is a boutique company delivering outstanding visual and design creations for clients such as Marvel Studios, Universal, Warner Brothers and Netflix.
We focus on original and meaningful ideas to support storytelling. With our curated team of talents, we adapt to the specificities of each project, tailoring best practices to client needs.   Film directors, production designers, VFX supervisors and company directors entrust us with the concept development of their main story design or their entire production design needs. Our understanding has been forged by in-depth experience working on high-end projects in the movie industry.  We also enjoy bringing our experience to bear in other visual fields, such as advertising, animation, architecture and video creation.
The Art of Direction was launched in 2015 by Virginie Bourdin, a former Art Director at MPC London, where she created the first VFX concept artist position and VFX art department in 2003. With a deep understanding of the creative process, she has helped numerous directors, VFX supervisors and producers to win pitches and develop their artistic vision.
