After joining Henry recently, CZAR BE has announced the addition of director Martin Scali to its roster. Martin is a French director who is already very accomplished. He has a distinct style of storytelling with emphasis on unique visuals and a strong focus on aesthetics.
He has worked on a variety of projects such as directing music videos for Major Lazer featuring Nicki Minaj, Yael Naim and Orelsan featuring Stromae. The success of these projects got him shortlisted at Cannes’ YDA and the 2018 Shots awards. He is now developing his skills in the advertising world with already some strong work: directing the Official Paris 2024 Olympic Games campaign which was shot in four different countries as well as directing Yves Saint Laurent commercial ‘L’Homme’.
In regard to his fiction projects, his short ‘Canyon’ was a 2020 Festival de Clermont-Ferrand nominee. He is currently working on his debut feature with the Emergence grant from the French National Cinema Committee.
Martin has also been a close collaborator of the iconic Wes Anderson, working on 'Grand Budapest Hotel' and 'The French Dispatch'. Martin is a talented and hugely skilled multi-faceted director with a big career in front of him.
