He applied and landed an Art Director position at Kalisto, a French game company where he worked for five years. After Kalisto closed in 2002, he was hired by Infogrames in Lyon and then moved on to Ubisoft as a Visual Effects Artist. In 2006, Maxime became Senior Effects Artist for Ubisoft in Montreal.
