Behind the scenes

A labour of love

18 Montréal studios. Thousands of hours of work. Hundreds of emails. Our little video is huge in terms of work and love that went into its making. Everyone involved did it with boundless enthusiasm and the collaborative spirit that is typical for this ecosystem in Montréal. The person at the centre of it all is our visual communications manager Yohann Rabusseau, whose dream put the project in motion in the first place.
