Art director and production designer in Montréal, Canada

About Raymond

I've been working as production designer and art director since 1986. Did a lot of tv series in Montreal, for Radio-Canada, TVA and Télé-Québec. Also numerous US Majors, among them: The Jackal (Bruce Willis, Richard Gere) as the Montreal art director, P.T Barnum (Beau Bridges) and Varian's War (William Hurt), as production designer.
For almost 38 years, I was involved on 22 tv series, 40 features and more than 300 tv commercials as property master, draftsman, head decorator and assistant art director.
I love studio set ups, very good at it, as well as transforming the locations for the needs of the movie!

  • Bethune: The Making of a Hero

    Bethune: The Making of a Hero (1990)
    Film by Phillip Borsos (Biography, Drama, Romance and War) Art department Bethune has long been a hero in China. Perhaps for reasons of politics and personality, however, his fame in North America lagged far behind. The film explores the complexity of a character who could be narcissistic, petty, and cruel with those who loved him, yet capable of heroic generosity and creativity for those whom he scarcely knew. It was a Canada-China-France co-production, which by the time of its release had become the most expensive movie ever made in Canada. The production had been dogged by controversy over funding, politics, location, revenue, and a dispute over the script between the author, who had been with Bethune in Spain, and the leading actor who had already played Bethune in other venues. Some scenes are tinged with humor and Bethune's speeches about universal access to humane medicine have an uncanny appeal more than half a century later. With its beautiful backdrop of Chinese landscapes, Montreal snow, and 1930s nostalgia, the film is an evocative memorial to a... Written by Duffin, Jacalyn
