Episode 12: Meet Amélie Labrèche
For this new episode, we welcome our new host: Catherine Legault, she will introduce us to Amélie Labrèche.
Catherine took over from our dear Myriam Poirier, for a few episodes. Myriam took a break from the microphone to fully devote herself to her own projects.
We chose to speak with the young and prolific editor, Amélie Labrèche. After working for years as an assistant, Amélie made the leap to editing in 2016. Since then, she has been working on fiction, documentary and TV series projects. Catherine invites you to trace the path of Amélie’s young career.
