FRANÇOIS AUDOUY was born in the south of France and raised in a small town north of Los Angeles.

François is a Production Designer who started his career path as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer, contributing to the designs of dozens of films including "Men in Black 1 & 2," "Primary Colors," "Wild, Wild West," "Minority Report," "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," and "Zodiac." He gradually transitioned to art direction—on tentpole films such as "Green Lantern," "Watchmen," "Transformers," "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory," "The Terminal," and "Spider-Man." 

As Production Designer, François designed the films "Dracula Untold" directed by Gary Shore,  "The Wolverine" directed by James Mangold and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" directed by Timur Bekmambetov. Most recently, he designed the highly anticipated final film in the Wolverine saga, to be released in March 2017 by 2oth Century Fox.

Between Production Design projects, he occasionally creates conceptual illustrations during the development phases of specialty film projects, such as "Avatar" and "Jurassic World."

He lives with his wife and two daughters in Los Angeles, California.

François’ enthusiasm was incredible and he was willing to take risks. “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” was not a big budget movie, but it was a huge undertaking. I studied to be a Production Designer so I understand what was involved. The project was risky, challenging, but he never made a mistake. He is really brave, and that helped us enormously. What he did was truly unbelievable.
