With his colleague Francis Fortier, he immediately founded the collective "Le boîte insolente", where he produced, wrote, directed and edited the group's capsules for the web. Since then, he has independently produced and directed short fiction films. Jimmy participates in various creative laboratories while earning a living in cinema, cartoon, graphic design, illustration and the teaching of his art.
