Founded in 2008, Eliotness is the fiction department of Troublemakers, a production company based in the heart of Paris. We create images and words with a focus on narrative, content and form through unique projects. Stories that speak to everyone. Stories that create honest and sincere films.  Our producers and directors are above all united by a common desire to challenge assumptions. Over the years, we have produced more than a hundred films. Some of them have won multiple awards. This experience has led us to want to develop multiple formats, from series to feature film projects.

Robin Noël

Robin began his career in feature films alongside Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache for the company Quad Films, assisting them on internationally acclaimed films such as "Intouchables" and "Samba". Afterwards, he produced numerous advertising campaigns for prestigious clients such as LVMH and L'Oréal, within the Havas Paris agency. His various projects led him to work successively in New York, London and Bangkok, where he discovered and tamed other cultures and audiovisual practices, sharpening his taste for 2D and 3D animation. He joined Troublemakers in 2020, sharing founder James Hagger's ambition to develop and carry ambitious long format projects, blurring the imposed boundaries of genre and technique.


Our studio is equipped to meet all our needs in 2D and 3D animation, stop-motion, claymation, puppet animation, compositing, SFX and colour grading.
