Ugo Mangin joins Birth for UK commercials and music video representation. Ugo has already completed a project for Birth with 72andSunny.
Ugo Mangin reflects the world’s coarse reality and subversion. He dives into film with the passion of an explorer. He travels the globe and shoots his inspirations. He scrutinises, stirs up, and transcribes with instinctive camerawork for a surreal and highly defined aesthetic style.
He follows lost souls with energy and compassion. The powerless, the insane, those stuck between worlds. Ugo’s range of exploration seems infinite and unbridled. Perhaps it is his own complex interior universe, that enables him to apprehend the folly, instability and strangeness of the world, and to make sense of it through the prism of beauty and empathy.
“Ugo Mangin joins us for the development of his UK career for music videos and commercials. We are very proud that he trusts us. He’s a great director with an eye and artistic direction of his own. An overflowing energy and a passion that burns in his eyes. He works all the time, exploring, reading, listening. He is insanely curious and courageous and always experimenting. He likes to enhance reality but also to give asperity to luxury. From music videos to documentaries and films for big luxury houses, Ugo is a versatile and elegant talent. Very, very proud of our new signing to the Birth TV label. Welcome my dear Ugo!” said Hugo Legrand Nathan-CEO Birth TV
Ugo began his career with artistic projects for bands, mixing great technical skill, a touch of poetry and a hint of decadence. Whether his pieces are premium or low-tech, at only 25 years old, Ugo is characterised by an exceptional maturity for his young age, Ugo directed his first advertising film for Cacharel, followed by digital films for Yves Saint Laurent and most recently Google for 72andSunny.
“I joined Birth UK because I liked the idea of exploring a new territory with a familiar French team behind me, with someone as experienced and respected as Kate (Elson) in the UK. There is, in Hugo a warlike energy (in the good sense of the word) which seduced me too. He fights to challenge and push ideas to the end. I felt that with him we could make films that go off the beaten track and we have a good time making them in the process” said Ugo Mangin-director.
The narrative for his music video for Denai Moore, centres around a megalomaniac child, who thinks he’s an adult and desperately confronts this new reality head on. This piece got him noticed at the YDA’s.
