It all started with three people dedicated to making films who met at 18 in film school and founded, five years later, their production company because they wanted to be independent during the boom in the audio-visual industry in the 80s: Olivier Morel, Ariane Le Couteur and Hugues de Rosière.

They called it L’envol (Takeoff) to express their desire to discover the world.

Founded in 1983, L’envol is an independent production and production service company working on documentaries, magazines, and institutional films.

Olivier Morel is the CEO and manages the production services department as well as the African subsidiary L’Envol Ivoire.
Ariane is the general manager and producer.

Hugues de Rosière is the third partner and works as an independent filmmaker for L’envol and other production companies.
