P’tites Madeleines Productions was created in March 2013 by Julie Périon.
Julie grew up in Bretagne (Vannes, France), studying Aerospace Engineering in Toulouse (France) and Montréal (Canada), before moving to the Netherlands in 2006 to work at the European Space Agency in Noordwijk. Her passion for cinema and filmmaking pushed her to enroll on a Film Production course at the Film Academy of Amsterdam in 2010.
After having worked on various film productions in Amsterdam, including the transmedia project “Steekspel” directed by Paul Verhoeven, Julie felt it was time to take the plunge and produce her own film projects. Armed with a burgeoning international contacts list, a Palm beer in one hand and a list of ideas in the other, P’tites Madeleines Productions was born in 2013.
To date, Julie continues both passions: aerospace engineering and filmmaking.
P’tites Madeleines Productions is a reflection of this combination: pragmatic, curious, creative and open-minded.
