Aurélien Lainé

Writer & Director

 

I am a French born, New Zealand trained award winning writer-producer based in Seoul South Korea. I travelled most of my life and worked in France, England, Italy, Spain, Australia, New Zealand and Korea where I now reside. My love for writing was only equated by my passion for films and it seemed only right to mix the two for a career. Storytelling and human character are some of the most beautiful things I know along with books, flying and scientific discovery. The future is bright and I write about it.
