Living and working in Saguenay means being able to enjoy a culturally effervescent city, just a stone's throw away from the best that nature has to offer! Renowned for its majestic territory, the region is also inhabited by a population that stands out for its friendliness and creativity.
The region is full of wide-open spaces where you can hike, climb, cycle (and much more), in places each more spectacular than the next. It is also a fishing paradise, which can be practiced both in summer and winter. For swimmers, the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region has no less than 42 km of beach!
In Saguenay itself, many restaurants, cafés and bars/microbreweries make the city lively, not to mention festivals such as La Noce, a music festival, or REGARD, a meeting place for movie lovers from around the world. Located near a multitude of agricultural producers, it is also possible to eat local and organic food.
LIVING IN SAGUENAY
Located in the heart of Saguenay's digital district, the studio is close to several points of service, such as restaurants and cafés, as well as the Saguenay port area, which borders the Saguenay River. It also has an XXL parking lot.
Capitalizing on the industrial aspect of the building, the studio will be equipped with a kitchen with a central island, ideal for Friday happy hours. The idea is to bring to Saguenay this convivial vision of work, centered on collaboration and pleasure. After all, this is the core of FOLKS' identity.
Specialized in compositing, the studio will have a space dedicated to the training of new talents. The supervisors are experienced VFX artists.
