Since her school years, Chloé Jarry has followed a double path. On the one hand, she was guided by her studies of the humanities towards the world of publishing; on the other hand, she took a designer-director course at the Gobelins School where she specialized in multimedia.

Soon, these two paths came together in projects that flood the world of books with the possibilities of the digital. In 2011, she joined the Camera Lucida production society, capping off a decade's experience in multi-media storytelling.

As a producer of New Media, she helps bring together different writing and distribution methods to create innovative, immersive and meaningful experiences.

Centring transfer of knowledge in her work, Chloé Jarry varies the media through which she raises awareness and promotes discovery. The participatory project Spring Missions (“Missions Printemps”), for example, in partnership with Arte and CNRS, explores the possibilities of crowdsourcing: Thanks to a website and a smartphone app, the public contributes to experimental research by collecting data.

In 2017, she continued her exploration work with The Enemy, directed by Karim Ben Khelifa, an experience which confronts users with the different viewpoints of combatants in armed conflicts.

A true architect of transmedia projects, the producer uses these cutting-edge technologies to put users at the centre of pedagogical systems.

It is not uncommon for cross-media projects, due to their size and complexity, to rely on international collaborations. Following Spring Missions, the fruit of a Franco-German exchange, The Enemy is no exception to this rule, being the product of co-production between several French publishers and the Canadian National Film Office.

It is this serious virtual reality game, filmed by the Belgo-Tunisian photojournalist Karim Ben Khelifa and benefiting from the technical expertise of MIT Professor Fox Harrell in Boston, which secures international recognition for Chloé Jarry.

Translated into English, The Enemy has been particularly praised in the English-language press for its social commitment and technological audacity.
