Cormier explained that some former Technicolor advertising clients will be making the move to Boogie Studio as well. Were looking forward to filling the niche that Technicolor left for us. When the announcement was made, Id already booked sessions for a national campaign for Nissan and we had several clients wed been working with for years, said Cormier.

An artist in her own right, Desmeules-Desbiens is also known for her remarkable VJ performances!
