Biography

Pierre-Louis Padang Coffin naît le 16 mars 1967 d'un père diplomate, Yves Coffin et d'une mère écrivain d'origine indonésienne, Nh. Dini.

Après des études de cinéma à la Sorbonne, il intègre l'école de l'image des Gobelins à Paris. Il fait d'abord ses armes en Angleterre, à Amblimation, le premier studio créé par Steven Spielberg à Londres. Il travaille sur plusieurs longs métrages en tant qu'assistant animateur et revient en France, où il intègre le studio ExMachina en qualité d'animateur puis directeur d'animation. Spécialisé dans l'animation 3D, il se fait remarquer par des courts métrages délirants tels que les Pings, des histoires de pingouins martyrisés, ainsi que de nombreux films publicitaires (il a notamment dessiné, avec sa collaboratrice Elisabeth Patte, l'écureuil de Caisse d'Epargne, ainsi que Dédé, le cochon de la Française des jeux).

En 2003, il réalise pour TF1 Pat et Stanley, une mini-série qui connaît un succès important, notamment grâce à la reprise de la chanson Le Lion est mort ce soir par les deux héros. En 2009, l'épisode Jour de bain, coréalisé avec Marco Allard, reçoit le prix spécial du jury pour une série TV au Festival international du film d'animation d'Annecy, festival dont il avait par ailleurs été membre du jury quelques années plus tôt, en 2005.

En 2010, il coréalise pour Universal, avec Chris Renaud, le long métrage Moi, moche et méchant, qui lui vaut une nomination aux BAFTA Awards.

En 2013 sort Moi, moche et méchant 2, coréalisé toujours avec Chris Renaud, qui obtient une nomination aux Oscars.

Minions are small, yellow creatures who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who exist only to serve history's most villainous masters. They find great masters—including a T-Rex, a caveman, an Egyptian pharaoh, Dracula, and Napoleon,—but after accidentally killing nearly all of them with their incompetence, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica. By 1968, the lack of a master to serve drives them into depression, so Kevin, one fearless Minion, plans to find a new one for them by going back out into the world. Stuart—a bored, teenaged minion who is obsessed with guitars—joins him reluctantly, as does an over-enthusiastic Bob, whom Kevin only chooses because of no one else willing to volunteer.

A mysterious vehicle using a huge magnet steals a highly potent mutagen known as PX-41 from a secret laboratory in the Arctic Circle. The Anti-Villain League (AVL) tries to recruit former supervillain, Gru, to find who stole the mutagen, but Gru refuses, claiming he is a legitimate businessman now as well as the father of Margo, Edith, and Agnes. Dr. Nefario, Gru's friend and assistant, has decided to leave him for new employment, claiming he "missed being evil." Gru reluctantly partners with undercover AVL agent Lucy Wilde, and they search a local mall, the Paradise Shopping Mall, disguised as bakery employees. Mexican restaurant owner, Eduardo Pérez, is suspected by Gru of being "El Macho", a legendary supervillain who supposedly died after skysurfing a shark into the center of an active volcano. Gru and Lucy break into Eduardo's restaurant at night, but find nothing to prove that he is the culprit. Meanwhile, Agnes expresses her wish to have a mother someday and believes that Gru will fall in love with Lucy, but despite her excitement, Gru tells her that his relationship with Lucy is strictly professional.

Deux minions travaillent dans le labo de Gru. La pause déjeuner est encore loin mais l'un des minions a une terrible envie de manger sa banane ("Banana" en langage minion). Finalement, il prend sa banane et s'apprête à la dévorer, mais son collègue l'envie et veut la banane aussi. Alors qu'ils se battent, leur supérieur arrive et les sépare, mais quand il voit la banane, il ne peut résister à la tentation de la manger. Les trois minions se battant se retrouvent dans une pièce où des bombes sont surélevées et transportés ailleurs. Deux minions se font attraper et montent jusqu'au plafond, et il en va de même à la banane que voulait garder le supérieur. Ce dernier se rend au poste de commande et approche la banane de lui. Voulant l'avoir, il la fait lâcher, mais les bombes sont lâchées elles aussi. Les trois minions se réfugient dans une autre salle de travail ... remplie de minions. Ainsi, de trois on passe à une cinquantaine de minions voulant manger la banane. En appuyant dessus, un des minions projette la chair de la banane en l'air. La chair retombe dans un trou profond. À ce moment, un autre minion arrive et mange une pomme ("Papple" en langage minion.). Tous les autres se ruent sur lui pour lui voler la pomme.

Gru decides to do better, with the assistance of Dr. Nefario, by shrinking and stealing the Moon, an idea based on his childhood dream of being an astronaut, which was always disparaged by his mother Marlena. The plan is expensive and Gru seeks a loan from the Bank of Evil, where the president Mr. Perkins is impressed by the plan, but will only provide the money if Gru can obtain the necessary shrink ray first.
