After 12 successful years at Believe Media, René is pushing into future, excited about joining the support system in “the young, cool creative team at DG.” Moving forward for René means keeping his discipline in convention and fundamentals while tenaciously seeking alternate markets, formats and technology. No matter the project or the specific genre, René has a way of making things feel accidentally beautiful.
