The market study allowed us to quickly measure the effectiveness of the game's USP with a large audience. We were thus able to validate the strengths and weaknesses of the proposal and define possible areas of improvement for the game (strengthening certain USPs, re-evaluating the production budget and the price of the game in relation to the estimated acquisition cost).

It was also very informative on how to evaluate your game to the public on social networks.

The market study allowed us to evaluate our product and convince investors. It was absolutely decisive in our financing process. Thanks to this study, we were able to set up at ICC Geneva.

Aurélien was asked to proofread and advise on the preparation of "CIJV" and "FAJV" applications, and I highly recommend him for his speed, his excellent work and his good understanding of crowdfunding and transmedia in general.

We had a great experience with Mr. Mahieu, both on a professional and human level. In addition to being passionate and friendly, he is very committed to his profession and his expertise really helps young video game development studios to prepare themselves to obtain public aid, unlike firms that claim to be experts in the field and that only copy templates for us.

I therefore recommend Mr Aurélien Mahieu with great pleasure.

Aurélien accompanied me from the conception of my project to its realisation (even if there is still some way to go).

I am quite impressed by his patience and relevance, he often hits the nail on the head. He put me in touch with a good number of people in his network, and always the right people. I can't count the number of calls I've had, full of doubts and questions, and he's always received them with good humour, with the right words and with the right questions to readjust the shot.

Aurelien helped us (among other things) to write a grant application (CNC):

- He fully managed the organisation of all the documents in addition to the accompaniment (more than initially planned)

- He managed to condense countless pages into thirty or so, and did so in a clear manner, giving guidelines to our art team for imagery

- We did our market research, competitive analyses

- Established our communication strategy

- Sublimated the presentation of our project in short ^^

He is really part of our team and I am extremely proud of him. I'm afraid I don't want to recommend him for fear of losing him...

I met Aurélien Mahieu during my work at Ankama. He is a very professional, committed, conciliatory and patient person. He knows how to listen to and guide his interlocutors in a relevant way. He has a great deal of knowledge that he does not hesitate to put to good use, whether it is for a mission or to help the video game community. I highly recommend him, and will not hesitate to work with him again if I need to.

Aurélien was in charge of writing the two "CIJV" and "FAJV" application files for our next game, and fulfilled his mission brilliantly. He was able to write very clear documents in a very short time, thanks to his experience and his knowledge of the subject. His fresh look was also very beneficial for our project. Communication is his strong point, and always with a smile.
Go ahead without hesitation.

I contacted Aurélien at the beginning of the year to help us with our mobile game project in terms of public funding for video games. ("FAJV", "CIJV") We wanted to put as many chances as possible on our side and work with someone who understood our problems as a video game studio. I think that's one of the big advantages of working with Aurélien. When I spoke with him about the game, I immediately understood that I was not dealing with a simple public funds consultant but with someone who has real expertise in the sector. First of all, he has a real gaming culture as a player, but he also masters the business issues, whether it be gameplay, scenario, marketing or production.
Aurélien's other strong point is his perfect knowledge of the public funding environment, especially in the video game industry. For each funding institution, he knows the stakes, the key points of the file to be written, the important elements to put forward as well as the level of requirement on each part. In our situation, this was our first file of this type, so it was very reassuring for us to be able to trust his past experience on similar files.
Finally, personally I really enjoyed working with him. Despite the workload during the application period, he was always very available and educational, which was really appreciated during the rush. We felt supported in all phases of the process.
I would not hesitate to call on him again if necessary!

Aurelien knows the world of video game development and technical issues very well, has a great ability to listen and summarise, and knows how to deal with any financial or technical subject related to these files. Aurélien has a high standard of quality on the files he has been able to impose on us. He quickly gained the trust of the teams here.
Finally, Aurélien has the ability to adapt to our own time constraints and is very responsive.

Aurelien was highly recommended to us for the management of the funding applications to the CNC, and it goes without saying that the preparation of these applications would have been an endless headache without Aurelien's expertise. His experience, advice and guidance turned what was a long and arduous task into a relatively uncomplicated one. We plan to continue working with him on future grant applications.

Aurélien helped us greatly with the writing of the "FAJV" dossier, both in terms of the quality of the writing and the content.
He knows countless tricks, can use trends to steer dossiers, and thus considerably guarantees the chances of success of such a project. And that's without counting his advice on public financing to a greater extent. All with sympathy, responsiveness and openness.

Efficient, autonomous, friendly, good advice, working together is a pleasure!
We called on his services for a "CIJV" dossier. On my own, I would have spent a whole day on the file. In the end, I spent half a day in total, just enough time to pass on some information to Aurélien, and he took care of everything else. Result: file accepted. What more could you ask for!

I have personally worked with Aurélien on the submission of multiple applications, and particularly appreciated his ability to quickly understand the ins and outs of the script, game design, development, budget and schedule, while adapting the elements to the regulatory context imposed by the various aid schemes.

His extensive knowledge of video games allows him to be immediately operational on the concepts developed and to be a force of proposal on the grey areas of the 'dossier'. He is also a good project manager to bring together the various elements from different departments. In short, a great facilitator on subjects that are sometimes complex to move forward.

We needed to check that our product was expected by our market. We decided to call on BigWhoop to carry out a market study among an audience specialised in video games.

With the help of short advertising videos in which we could see our product, BigWhoop observed the public's interest in the various features we offered.

This study went very well, and I recommend BigWhoop for their support, their pedagogy and for their professionalism.

We will not hesitate to call on them for our next market study!
