Hailing from the visual arts world, Jimmy Lakatos has followed an atypical career path that has led him to what he calls “video set design” – his specialty. In Montreal, he pioneered the use of video in shows and public places. A longtime collaborator of directors Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, Jimmy is one of the cofounders of Artificiel, a Montreal-based multidisciplinary digital creation group whose works have been seen at festivals and in museums throughout Europe, Latin America and North America. He has also designed multimedia installations for museum exhibits as well as video projections for a number of shows, televised galas and commemorative events. Several companies from the North American cultural scene have called upon his services as a multimedia designer. Michael Jackson ONE marks Jimmy’s fourth collaboration on a Cirque du Soleil show after ZAIA, the closing celebrations of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City in 2008, and DELIRIUM.
