Rémi Noiriel was born in Paris and has been working in this industry for the past 20 years. He began his career overseas as Executive Producer in Cape Town, South Africa. He later moved to Turkey, where he created his own company in Istanbul and developed production services in that market. In 2004, he went to Buenos Aires and pioneered the production service industry in Argentina, building a company that has won the respect and trust of major clients around the world. But as a person that does not sit still, he researched other opportunities that led to his company’s expansion to Uruguay in October 2010 and, in September 2012, to Chile, where his headquarters is now based due to that market’s position as one of the world’s hotspots to shoot.

Veteran producer Nicolas Bétrancourt brings the world to France. Decades of experience shooting award-winning commercial films and music videos in his home country have served him well during recent years dedicated to providing great crews, amazing natural sets, and the guilty pleasure of a glass of wine or two or three with filmmakers and photographers from all over the planet. Because what’s the point of shooting in France if you don’t enjoy wine at the end of the day, honestly?
Nico, as he is widely known, was born in Le Havre, France, in the 60’s. Facing Southampton, not so far from Liverpool, he could be considered the 6th or 7th Beatle. Really! His choice of images over music may have cost recording studios a rising star, but the film industry got a hell of a producer instead.
As a young producer, Nico surfed the late 80’s wave of advertising and music videos working at Premiere Heure, the hippest production company in town. This fiery chap got involved in no less than a thousand of ad films and music videos and even won the very first award for a music video in France.
Later established with a bunch of mavericks under the famous flag « C’est La Vie Productions » in Paris and London, Nico enlivened the 90’s with the most popular music videos and advertising films of the decade.
But as most all great rock’n’roll bands, C’est La Vie Prod’s skyrocketing success sputtered out, and Nico took his life back as he embarked on a new millennium.
