About

Celine Tricart is a Los Angeles-based filmmaker and stereographer (aka 3D specialist) who is particularly interested in storytelling for stereoscopic cinema and Virtual Reality.

Creative AwardsCeline has directed several short films, three of which were shot in 3D, and received many awards around the world, including a selection at the prestigious Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival and a Creative Award from the International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society.

Since 2008 when she graduated from the famous ENS Louis Lumiere film school in Paris, she was the stereographer of more than 20 live broadcasts, commercials and documentaries, and of the first French 3D feature film “Behind the Walls” from directors J. Lacombe and P. Sid (Sombrero Productions- 2010). Celine then became the first-ever feature film female stereographer!La pratique de la mise en scène en 3D relief

Celine Tricart published a book about 3D storytelling in early 2013, available worldwide, and then moved to Los Angeles. She now works closely with the award-winning company 3ALITY TECHNICA on numerous projects including “Stalingrad” by director Fedor Bondarchuk and “Transformers 4 : Age of Extinction” by director Michael Bay.

As a director, and before that a camera crew member, Celine Tricart has a unique and recognizable style with a strong visual sense. Her favorite genres are character-driven science fiction and thriller/horror. Her films usually show a blurred mix of dream, fantasy, imagination and reality, but always led by a strong story.

Celine is now developing her first feature film and is also looking into TV as a fascinating new medium to tell her compelling stories. Her new bookDirecting 3D: Concepts and Techniques for Stereoscopic Filmmakers” will be published by Focal Press in 2015 worldwide.

Celine created her production company “Lucid Dreams Productions” in 2015 focusing on new technologies including Stereoscopic 3D and Virtual Reality. Her first VR film, “Marriage Equality” was shot in July 2015 using the new Nokia Ozo VR camera for clients 3ality Technica and Gannett Company, Inc.
