Felix Lajeunesse

Co-Founder, Co-Dir
Félix & Paul Studios

A visionary creator with a keen eye for detail and sustained emotional focus, Félix Lajeunesse
crafts immersive and interactive experiences that are rooted in connection: viewers feel deeply
moved by the places and people they see and hear, and find themselves completely involved in
the moment. Throughout his career, Félix has fused that sense of immediacy with a spirit of
exploration to bring the creative possibilities of 3D 360º cinematic VR, and now AR and MR, to
life. Félix’s longtime collaboration with Felix & Paul Studios co-founder Paul Raphaël grew out of
a shared vision for immersion and visceral worldbuilding which resulted in the first 3D camera
technology. Since launching Felix & Paul Studios in 2013 with Strangers with Patrick Watson,
Félix has directed and co-directed several of the studio’s 21 VR experiences. These include
Emmy Award–winning interactive feature The People’s House with then-president Barack
Obama, original VR fiction/feature experience Miyubi starring Jeff Goldblum, and documentary
series Space Explorers in collaboration with NASA. Now, Félix’s role has expanded to sharing
his knowledge and expertise with a bold new generation of experience creators. Recent projects
include co-directing Oscar winner Roger Ross Williams’ Traveling While Black, co-producing the
NFB/Clyde Henry Productions collaboration Gymnasia, and working with TIME on the latest
filming of Space Explorers aboard the International Space Station. Whether leading his studio,
directing or producing, Félix Lajeunesse spearheads the creation of compelling immersive and
interactive experiences while charting a new world of artistic entertainment.
