TimTom Films is a production company located in Paris.
Its goal? Find the missing link between two distinct universes : animation and live action.

The company worked on Jean-Pierre JEUNET’s «Micmacs à tire-larigot», on «Bref» (Canalplus) and on the launch of Jean-Paul GAULTIER’s latest website.

All the films are directed by Romain Segaud and his team.



Romain Segaud is a film director.

In 2002, Romain graduated top of Supinfocom school, with his first short animation film « TimTom ». The film would then tour national and international festivals and obtain many awards including the IMAGINA Grand Prize (given by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Caro), the SIGGRAPH jury’s Prize and nominations in official competition at the Sundance Film festival (US) and at the Annecy festival (FR).

Romain began working as an animator for Pierre Coffin (future director of “Despicable Me”) at MACGUFF, and rapidly started working on his own projects. Thanks to the success of these new productions, he obtained various advertising contracts and directed films for brands such as SFR (French mobile phone company), The Guardian, Suzuki, or Radio Nova, for which he was awarded the best movie award by the French “Club des DA”. At this time he also collaborated with Michel Gondry for his DVD “The work of director Michel Gondry” by shooting and doing making of on his set.

Romain also directed music videos, such as “This train” for artist Wax Tailor, as well as title sequences and opening credits for CANAL+, FRANCE 2 and TF1 (French TV channels).

For his feature film « Micmacs à Tire-Larigot », Jean-Pierre Jeunet asked Romain to design and direct animated sequences which appear throughout the film. On this occasion, Romain created his own production company, TimTom Films, in reference to his first short film.

Recently, Romain directed the film for Jean-Paul Gaultier’s new website and the latest music video for French artist Yuksek for his song «Off the wall ».

Romain is currently working on the production of an animation series as well as his first feature film in mixed media.
