Marc Bertrand graduated in theatre from the Conservatoire d‘art dramatique du Québec in 1982. He acted in some 30 plays across the country, before joining the NFB. He became a producer in the Animation and Youth Studio in 1998 and has produced over 100 films, including such notable successes as the award winning series "Science please!" (2001) and "Noël Noël" (2003) by Nicola Lemay. He also produced "24 idées/seconde" (2006), a television series about animated film and its creators. His interest in new technology has led him to become involved in working on stereoscopic films. In 2008, he co-produced “Facing Champlain”, a Work in 3 Dimensions directed by Jean-François Pouliot, and Marc as recently produced “Private Eyes”, a new stéréoscopic film by Nicola Lemay.
