SHORT DIRECTOR BIO:
Benjamin Seroussi is a Paris-based filmmaker specialized in fashion films and music videos. He studied at the UCLA film school in the late 1990s and has been making music videos since 2001; In the mid-2000s, Seroussi became interested in exploring the possibilities of fashion film, and his clients in this domain have included Showstudio magazine, Belvedere Vodka, Swarovski, LVMH group, Cacharel, L'Oreal, Galeries Lafayette, Martin Margiela, Lacoste, l'Officiel magazine, Vogue Italia, and Intersection magazine. Seroussi's work is about exploring new formats and processes. He often creates his own filming tools and has a passion for both current and obsolete technologies. One of the things that makes his work unique is that he uses creative manual techniques during shooting rather than adding effects in post-production; this gives his work a timeless analog feel that distinguishes it from the current media climate. A firm believer in the magic of collaboration, he established solid relationships with leading designers, art directors, cinematographers, choreographers, and musicians. With complex choreography, innovative editing, and manual filter techniques.
