Stéphane Nepton was born on December 22 1971 in Sept-Îles on Québec’s North Coast. He is Innu from Mashteuiatsh. He’s been working as a videogame FX artist for 22 years and is also a digital artist. Stéphane also co-founded Uhu labos nomades, one of his greatest social achievements. He created his first short, L’Innu du future (The Future Innu) as part of Wapikoni’s 2021 virtual studio cohort. It is an ode to the land in relation to my double identity as an urban Indigenous person. A story that is both personal and poetic. He views cinema as a great canvas to let his artistic self-determination shine in a decolonized space.
