Born in Brittany in 1965, Bruno Collet receives his diploma in 1990 from the Beaux-Arts in Rennes. He begins working as an assistant photographer, and then set designer on a number of films, series and music videos, and many animations. In 2001, his first short, Le Dos au mur, is selected by the International Critics' Week at Cannes where it wins an award. A string of stop-motion series and films are to follow. Calypso is Like So, a tribute to actor Robert Mitchum, wins over Turner Classic Movies, which commissions him to make Rest in Peace, a mini-series with a humouristic bent about the misfortunes of a film-buff psycho-killer. In 2007, Bruno Collet tries his hand at a new register with The Day of Glory, a nightmarish vision of the trenches during World War I. His latest film, The Little Dragon, takes a turn back to comedy, revisiting Bruce Lee 38 years after his death. Bruno Collet is currently writing a feature animation.
