Alain Desrochers studied at St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu College in the early 1980s and then at Concordia University earning himself a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the end of the decade. He began his filmmaking career with more than one-hundred music videos and television commercials, with numerous awards to honor them. After branching into fiction with several short films, Desrochers directed episodes of Tony and Ridley Scott's popular television horror anthology series, "The Hunger" before directing his first feature-length film, "La Bouteille" in 2000, which earned him a nomination for a Genie for Best Direction. Having helmed "Music Hall I" and "Music Hall II" and the first season of the hit comedy "Les Bougon: C'est Aussi ça la Vie," Desrochers emerged on the English-language market with the cult sci-fi series "Charlie Jade." Desrochers directed the action-thriller "Nitro," starring Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge and Lucie Laurier, which opened in theaters to tremendous critical and box office success. He then went on to direct "Musée Éden" a big-budget miniseries, which earned him a Rockie Award in Banff, an Artistic & Technical Contribution Award in La Rochelle and a nomination for Best Direction in a Dramatic Series at the Gémeaux Awards 2010. He soon followed with "Cabotins," a feature comedy starring Rémy Girard and Yves Jacques and then directed "Gerry," a biopic about Offenbach's lead singer, Gerry Boulet. Desrochers then shot a new series for France 2, "Les Limiers" and the series "La Marraine" for Série +.
