Marco Novoa and Simon Vivier have each been working on their own in the audiovisual industry for several years. Queendom is the first joint documentary for the young filmmaking duo, who’ve been together as a couple for 11 years.
Marco Novoa, a native of the Galatia region in Spain, is an editor-director of music videos, commercials and documentaries. He got into film editing shortly after moving to Paris, in 2007, and quickly shifted toward screenwriting and film direction. Within a few short years his work had won wide acclaim, giving him a chance to collaborate with brands such as Chanel and Armani and to make music videos for popular artists such as Marine Kay and Luke.
Simon Vivier joined the audiovisual industry in 2006, working primarily on popular short format shows such as Caméra Café and Vous les Femmes. Drawn to writing and artistic direction, Simon studied creative and screenplay writing and moved into artistic coordination work. Along with developing his own fiction projects, Simon is also the art department coordinator for the hit comedy series Scènes de Ménages.
