LUIGI PANE AND JULIEN ZENIER JOIN DIRTY FILMS
11 February 2020

Dirty Films are kicking off 2020 in style with a pair of new additions to their directorial roster.

Italian filmmaker Luigi Pane is known for his distinctive visual flair and drive to explore complex narratives, while Parisian Julien Zenier draws on his photographic experience and sleek aesthetic for brands across numerous sectors.

Let's find out more about what each director brings to the table...


1. Luigi Pane



Luigi Pane joins the Dirty roster by way of Milan, and began his career as a visual artist before moving into the commercial sphere.

A keen musician into the bargain, Pane's knack for sound design and rhythm complements his emotive, polished visuals. Such versatility has led him to work for brands across the globe, from brooding fashion films to cinematic narrative campaigns – all showing off his fiercely individual aesthetic.

With an ability to explore unusual protagonists and bring complex stories to the screen in accessible ways, Pane is ready to bring his considerable flair - as shown in the Yahama commercial below - to the UK market.




2. Julien Zenier



There's a deft glamour which makes Julien Zenier's films stand out from the crowd – be they high-octane sports-focused outings, bold fashion films, or big-budget campaigns fronted by a celebrity or three.

Having shot commercials all over the world, he's known for his ability to expand ideas to their most visually stylish and cinematic potential. Zenier takes a highly technical approach to filmmaking, and his photographic background only heightens his commitment to creating exciting visuals no matter the project.

Throwing himself into each job with a relentless creative energy (such as Europebet's 'The Pirlo Effect' ad), Zenier's robust body of work and hunger for the next big innovation means he'll find himself right at home with Dirty Films.
