Director Vincent René-Lortie has joined The Corner Shop for USA and UK/Amsterdam for representation.
René-Lortie has already won hearts & minds at D&AD Graphite Pencil: Best Direction ‘Simon Leoza - La Nuèe’ and UKMVA 2020 Best Choreography (Brittney Canda): 'Sheena Ko - Wrap Me Up’ for his mesmerising journeys, often with an unexpected twist.
His most recent Young Director Awards Gold: Video Art for dance short film 'Sit Still’ re-imagines how choreography can work in narratives. He navigates the inner emotions of seven-year old Adeline, expressing herself purely through street dance Krump, replacing the traditional beat-centric style with an introspective score by Alaskan Tapes. We are forced to really listen to what she has to say.
It is always a spellbound experience, where story, craft and choreography lie at the heart of every film.
Anna Hashmi – founder, executive producer, The Corner Shop said: ‘’There is something magical about Vincent’s work, that makes time and phone calls just stop as you get drawn into the worlds and stories he creates. We are excited and feel privileged to work with such a breakthrough talent."
Vincent René-Lortie - director, The Corner Shop said: "I am honoured to join the wonderful family of The Corner Shop. All my discussions with Anna and Chia in the UK have proven that they are so committed to the craft of film, its artistry, and process. But above all, their human and honest values are felt through all their projects, which is really important to me. I feel that I am only at the beginning of my directorial career in the advertising world and I can't wait to be able to learn and create alongside their team."view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessThe Corner Shop, Tue, 30 Nov 2021 10:05:47 GMT
