Yvonne Boudreaux is a production designer for film, television, dance, and theater. She served as art director on Vincent-N-Roxxy, AMC's The Son and NBC’s Revolution. She production designed for Nia Dacosta's Little Woods, Bob Byington’s Harmony & Me, Mike Dolan's Dance With The One, and Kat Candler's Black Metal (short). In addition, Yvonne was the set designer on Laika's ParaNorman, John Ridley's American Crime, and Robert Rodriguez’s Machete.
Yvonne started her career in architecture, combining her dance background with her architectural skills to design movement installations for dancers to suspend and defy gravity using a physical structure. Her work allowed dancers to engage with a wrapped cage, suspend a ballet sideways, and fly under a bridge, all of which were part of The Cohen New Works Festival in Austin, Texas. The combination of architectural scaling, film production, theatrical design, and choreography brought her to the world of production design.
Yvonne earned her Master's in Theatrical Design with a concentration in Set Design from the University of Texas at Austin where she taught set design to undergraduates and production design for the University of Texas Film Institute. She previously received her Bachelor's of Architecture from Louisiana State University and has taught architecture at University of Louisiana in Lafayette. She is the production designer at the Sundance Institute Directors Lab and teaches Production Design for Film and Television at the University of Texas at Austin. Additionally, Yvonne produced a documentary, 61 Bullets, about her deep-rooted cajun family’s association with the 1935 shooting of Louisiana Senator Huey P. Long.
