Sibling Films, known for its work with brands like Nike, HPE and Lexus, has added director Benjamin Nicolas to its roster.
“Benjamin is a true talent,” Darren Foldes, managing director at Sibling Rivalry says. “If you have not seen his piece “Long Live Little Brats” for Montreal Children’s Hospital press pause on what you’re doing and watch it now. Simultaneously it is vibrant, rambunctious, heart-wrenching and uplifting. It led me to his other work and I simply fell in love with how palpable all of it is. I’m honored to be in his corner and look forward to delivering highly crafted impactful work with him.”
Nicolas joins Sibling Films with an impressive portfolio in both film and photography. He began his creative career as a photographer. Afterward, Nicolas transitioned into cinematography, where he would participate in more than 15 feature investigative documentaries all around the world. He directed two feature documentaries for Canal+ and ARTE before his short film “Le Clown De Belleville” brought him to the attention of the commercial industry.
Nicolas earned a bronze Shots’ Director of the Year in 2021 for “Long Live Little Brats” and the Montreal Children’s Hospital. The film's success helped raise 2.5 million dollars for the hospital.
Other notable work includes his Huawei NOVA commercial; his 'Blossom' and 'The 3rd Woman' videos for the French fashion boutique, Oscar Carvallo; and the 17-minute short film, Wanda, which brilliantly discusses the heavy themes of adolescence, abuse and trauma.
“Throughout my entire career, authenticity is the link that bridges my diverse portfolio of work,” Nicolas says. “I'm seeking authenticity in every aspect of my relationships, and movement is my language to reach it. Movement acts as a bridge for emotions — a dialogue can lie, not a movement. It's the most authentic language.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessSibling Rivalry, Wed, 17 Nov 2021 09:31:45 GMT
