Pascal Charrue
Co-Founder & CEO - Fortiche Production

Pascal Charrue, one of the founders of Fortiche Production, is one of the co-directors of the Arcane series. Graduated from Gobelins, the school of Image, he directed projects as independent director. In 2000, as he was working for the video game studio Quantic Dream, he met the one who would become a few years later his co-partner Jérôme Combe. Thereafter, he worked as a freelance director.

Then, in 2008, during a film made with Arnaud Delord & Jérôme Combe, the three friends decided to realize their project: create their own Studio, Fortiche Production. This internationally renowned animation studio, located in Paris, is also known for its collaborations with big names of the video games’ industry such as: Ubisoft, Carbine Studios and Riot Games. They have an eclectic culture that reflects their vision and way of working. They have developed a unique graphic style mixing 2D and 3D media, combined with an ambitious staging inspired by cinema. The combination of this visual style and their narrative ambitions make Fortiche's signature instantly recognizable in the industry. In 2012, the studio produced and directed a music video for the French band Limousine, called “La Gaviota” : it was noticed by Riot Games. Then, Riot came to them in 2013 to direct and produce the “Get jinxed” video. Started a long partnership between the two companies and with Christian Linke, showrunner of Arcane.

The studio has produced projects such as "League of Legends: Rise", "League of Legends: K/DA - POP/STARS", "League of Legends: Warriors", Coldplay and Gorillaz music videos and the "Rocket & Groot" series for Marvel Studios. In 2021, Arcane series (4 Emmys, 9 Annies) was released on Netflix, the press coverage and the acclamations of the audience rocketed the piece to one of, if not, the best video game adaptation ever. A second season is currently in production.
