Christophe Leopold Lafont
After obtaining a Master’s degree in Law at the University of Paris 2 Panthéon Assas and having followed parallel courses at the French Press Institute, the Ecole du Louvre and the Cours Florent, I opted for a DEA in Cinema at the University of Paris Panthéon Sorbonne, specializing in screenwriting under the direction of Jean-Paul Torok.
For more than 20 years, I worked in independent advertising agencies, where I successively held the positions of copywriter, creative director and director. In 2017, a double training at the Paris Chamber of Commerce in business creation and in Film Production Management allowed me to understand an audiovisual work in its vast ecosystem and all its issues : economic, technical, legal, and artistic, of course.
With these new expertises, I founded in 2018 POETIK FILM, a film production structure based in Paris, specialized in the development and production of short films. Thanks to my meeting with Jean-Raymond Garcia (Author-Director-Producer) and Eric Debègue (CEO of the Alhambra post-production studios), I decided to move on to the production of feature films and creative documentaries.
