About ...

Jean Lavergne is seasoned videographer and ENG-cameraman from Shawinigan Quebec, working in the artistic field since the mid-1970s. Musician since childhood, in 1976, at the age of 16, he decided to undertake a professional musical career. He then joined several musical groups as a keyboardist and paced the Quebec show business scene until 1989. After 13 years on the road as a musician and arranger, he decided in 1990 to found his own audio production company in Shawinigan, Demo-Express. The local industry response was immediate. In less than a year Jean joined the ranks of regular producers of local radio stations and networks where he produced for several years, many jingles. His radio experience will then continue further when he occupies the position of network operator for a few years.

A big movie fan and always on the lookout for new challenges, Jean added video production to its arsenal of services in 1995 by proposing a complete audiovisual package to its customers. The name of the company then changed for DigiFilm Média-Presse (DMP). Right from the start, DMP does not skimp on the means by acquiring broadcast-level equipment ensuring an impeccable quality of rendering, enabling it to quickly become a specialized choice in the region. In 1997, DigiFilm Média-Presse won a contract with the local junior hockey team for the shooting of its local games, contract that lasted 17 seasons. Initially fairly simple, the shooting of these games took an interesting twist when the team moved in the new Shawinigan multimedia center in 2008. Jean then had to set up a transmission system and an on site five cameras tv studio in order to broadcast live games on the web. With all the planning and complexity that such a task represents, the project was remarkably fulfill with flying colours.
In May 2014, Jean received a special mention from the Mayor of Shawinigan for his leadership, exceptional professional qualities and his community-recognized expertise. This mention at the Shawinigan City Council followed Jean's participation at the event  « Toute la ville parle PME ».

Also animated by curiosity and an attraction for the paranormal subject, Jean returns to radio in 2001 but this time in front of the microphone. Being initially only a simple weekly chronicle, his knowledge of the UFO phenomenon and the popularity of the chronicle leads him in 2009 to carry out an entirely dedicated show on the subject. The OVNIShow was born. Broadcast on the web, and on local radio at the time, the show is a great success on both sides of the Atlantic with a large European and domestic audience. Honoured by the ufology community in 2016, Jean was awarded the "Pauline Mongrain Award" for the advancement of ufology in Quebec, presented for the first time by the "Association Québécoise d'Ufologie" (AQU). The OVNIShow is still in production and continues to grow in an increasingly diverse audience.
