GWEN LE GOUIL
After studying history and journalism at Rennes and Strasbourg, Gwen has been audiovisual cooperator at the French Embassy in Bangkok between 1999 and 2001. Once back to France, he trained as a freelance video reporter for different newscasts before turning to "magazines".
In 2007, he won the "Albert-Londres Award" with Anne Poiret and Fabrice Launay for "Muttur, a crime against humanitarians". Then, he created Cargo Cult Productions with Jean-Laurent Bodinier. He obtained, in 2008, the "Best Report Award" at Ilaria Alpi's International Festival in Italy for "Somalia: leave or die", then he won the "Young Reporter Award" at Scoop Festival in Angers. In 2009, he received the Award of the "Best Investigation", still in Scoop Festival, for "poor whites" broadcasted on Arte. Today, he produces reports for programs like "Arte reports," "An eye on the planet," "Faut Pas Rêver," "Thalassa", "TF1 reports" and "66 minutes".
From his childhood in Madagascar, Jean-Laurent keeps the taste of travelling. Back to France, in the late 80s, he has one goal, return to live in Africa. Few years in high school he left Pau and goes training himself in Djibouti and Ethiopia ... Two years at school of another life. Self-taught, he forms himself to the editing and shooting. Still looking for exploration, he moved in the Caribbean. Three years later, settled in Paris, he became quickly chief editor and started directing.
He is associated in 2007 at the Albert Londres's Award for the editing of the documentary "Muttur: a crime against humanitarians." This film is the origin of the "Cargo Adventure." A few months after the award, he creates with Gwen the Cargo Cult Productions's company.
My experience of 15 years in MNEWS TV / MAXIMUM PRODUCTIONS and 3 years at Cargo Cult Productions allows me to ensure the implementation and the follow-up of the material, human, financial and technical means of a shooting and the post production, by respecting the planned budgetary. I manage the financial infrastructure of a production: make the financial evaluation of the project, define the budget, establish and enforce the budget by major items, negotiate contracts, proceed to cash outflows, establish the analytical balance sheet of the project.
My work takes place in teams, in close collaboration with various stakeholders (directors, technicians, suppliers and service providers and customers of different TV channels).
