Claire Paoletti - Producer/Co-Writer

After earning a degree in cinema and art history, Claire discovered animation while supervising co-productions of children’s programming for France 2 and France 3. She specialized as an animation writer in series, short films as Bisaro’s Bang Bang! (2015 César nominee for Best Animated Short), and long features as Longway North which she created and wrote the original screenplay. She also writes children books and runs regular workshops at the animation school La Poudrière and Les Gobelins. She has recently created a production company with Julien Bisaro, Picolo Pictures, in which she produced and co-wrote Shooom’s Odyssey – Cristal of the best TV production in Annecy Festival 2020 and 2021 César nominee.

Shooom, a baby owl, hatches just as a storm turns the bayou surrounding her tree upside down. No sooner has she fallen from her nest, then the little fledgling totters off into the mangrove, pushing a second egg from the brood along with her. Come hell or high water, she’s determined to find a mother... even if that mom turns out to be an alligator or a raccoon! (subtitles)
