reach

story

In 2012, Luc Chatelain acquired the film and television division of Équipe Spectra, and founded Écho Média. Initially specializing in the recording of shows, then youth and documentaries, over the years the company has developed expertise in fiction, comedy, digital production and discoverability.

After months of work, an author reached out to me with the final version of her script: “Thank you. Thanks to you, I feel like I’ve written the series I thought I’d be able to write in 10 years”. There is no greater reward for me than these words.
