About Cedric Lejeune
Workflow specialist for high-end VFX and digital cinema, Cedric Lejeune develops production pipelines and trains people all around the world.
He began his career in 2000 as a Discreet Smoke assistant working on TribalX a complex, full CG/MoCap production for children before becoming and application engineer for Post-Logic supporting a wide range of products for animation, infrastructure, effects and colour grading.
Cedric led the implementation of the first industrial digital intermediate pipeline at Éclair Laboratories in 2002 and implemented different configurations in Paris (Mikrosimage, Duboi, Sylicone) and Madrid (Technicolor).
In 2006 he began his own company, Workflowers, to develop and provide consulting and training services, accompanying film labs in the transition to digital and helping post-production to step into the film world, specialising in workflows, infrastructures and colour science. Workflowers also develops image processing tools and a cloud based collaborative platform.
"The challenge was to find an infrastructure capable of running just as well on advertising as on film. First, Cedric Lejeune came to train me, and I realized that working with him would allow us to use the machines at their best."
Nic Smith DI Technical Director, Digital Pictures
"We continuously study new methods for working, that's where Workflowers assisted by working alongside our engineers and operators in order to find the most efficient configuration and work practices."
