Jean-François Sauvé
Sound Designer
Jean-François Sauvé
Sound Designer

Jean-François developed his passion for sound in his youth, as he became acquainted with sound in film
through his father, a film editor. Working in post-production, he likes to step back to gain perspective and
draw inspiration from the work, in order to bring a congruent and original vision to it. Sound design gives
him the freedom to put his creativity to use. Over his 20+ years of experience, he has been part of world-
renowned productions, such as Rebelle (War Witch), The Colony, Sarah préfère la course (Sarah Prefers
to Run), C.R.A.Z.Y. and Goon. Collaboration being an integral part of a project, Jean-François likes to
propose a vision, then watch as others adapt it, allowing him to learn more about sound and advance his
art.
