Vincent Morisset is a director known for his artful use of technology and interactivity. He's also the founder of the studio AATOAA (pronounced à toi, meanings 'yours'). His small squad has been recasting how we experience the Internet, games, public spaces and films.

Morisset first came to prominence through his long collaboration with Arcade Fire; Neon Bible is considered the first interactive music video, and Just a Reflektor won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Interactive Program. With Icelandic band Sigur Rós, Morisset directed their groundbreaking live-experience INNI, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival. In 2015, he premiered Way to Go at Sundance, won three Webbys and the People's Choice of the year at FWA. Recently, he created the pieces Vast Body, Habitat and Motto.
