Darrowan Prod co-founder, producer, filmmaker and journalist, Tibo Pinsard discovered art when he went to Dijon Fine Arts School. He was a fellow of very different and well-known artists such as painter Yan Pei-Ming and body artist Orlan. After a couple of years parodying video games with pictures and films, Tibo Pinsard went for fiction in 2008. He wrote and directed "Island", a short film, starring Alysson Paradis, Simon Charasson and Thierry Frémont. The short tackles one of his favorite topics: the lack of communication between people.
In 2012 he directed a new fiction, "Le Dernier Voyage d'Emile" (The Last Trip of Emile), a personal tribute to the king of burlesque Buster Keaton. Tibo is also in documentaries, like "La Reine du Meix " (The Queen of Meix) or "The Stooges Guide To Eternity" – produced by Darrowan Prod - on the legendary proto-punk band Iggy Pop founded.
