Former Ubi Dev Forms Studio to Bring Games to Life on Film

Posted Jul 09, 2016 by Catherine Daro

Former CEO of the motion picture branch of Ubisoft, Jean-Julien Baronnet, has formed a new business called Marla Studios with the goal of bringing  video game stories to the big screen. According to Baronnet, it takes knowledge of both video games and film making to see a great story brought to life (similar to Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell).

“Producing a video game adaptation is a special process that not only requires movie production know-how, but also a deep understanding of gamer values and the video game creative process,” he told Variety. “The key is to have a close relationship with the game designers and to work with them on the key creative angles that will best cope with the game’s DNA. The key is to recognize the passion of gamers, given they spend hundreds of hours in that world. That makes it essential for the ‘universe’ of the game to be as accurate as possible.”

Baronnet is in the process of collaborating with several studios about movie adaptations of their games.
