Meet Sebastien Guy. While studying film in Los Angeles, Sebastien acted in over 50 commercials. That’s when he got a first-hand look at the filmmaking process, what it was like to be on set, and how the directors managed the client, the agency, the crew, and the talent. He learned about on-set dynamics and the importance of relationships and communication in the process. And he took copious notes.
His father’s career in the airline industry meant Sebastien was raised around the world – an experience he wouldn’t change for anything. The constant moving made him an expert at re-acclimating to new environments and being easygoing and flexible came with the territory. These formative experiences carry through to his storytelling, how he works with clients and talent, and the atmosphere he creates on set.
Sebastien’s international experience makes him uniquely open to different cultures and different ways of doing things while his acting experience helps him bring out the best in the talent. He uses his raw and cinematic style to not only capture the performance but to create an emotional connection with the audience. He has a knack for bringing all the visual impact with none of the contrivance.
Sebastien has directed compelling spots for some of the most recognizable brands in the world.
