Sylvie Trouvé graduated from Ryerson University with a degree in photography and media arts, and left Canada to travel the world. Later, at Cuppa Coffee Animation studios, she learned to animate, specializing in stop motion and collage. Sylvie has spent the last 10 years working as an animator and animation director on various projects, from commercials and music videos to television series and documentaries. Through the NFB Hothouse she has now created her first professional, auteur film.


Dale Hayward and Sylvie Trouvé have given birth to SEE CREATURE, specializing in on-location animation. Founded on the belief that anything can be animated they work in stop-motion, 2D, after effects, mixed media and live action to create whatever needs to be told.  Their  projects range from commercials, music videos, documentaries, live events and short films.

After cutting their teeth on television series and commercials in Toronto they moved to Montreal in 2007 in order to spread their love of animation into the National Film Board of Canada’s arms; creating their first independent films.  Soon after their arrival in montreal they formed See Creature’s previous incarnation, La Moustache Productions. See Creature will appear out of the darkness to bring anything to light.
