Established and thriving live-action director Meriem Adib has created sophisticated spots for many famous faces including Idris Elba, Bear Grylls, and James Cracknell. Despite this, there’s one spot that stands out amongst her sea of others.
Late last year, NERD welcomed yet another gifted animation director to our roster, Juan Pablo Zaramella whose love falls in storytelling using comedic ingredients to create seamless spots mainly through stop-motion, pixilation and filmography techniques.
From what started as a beloved hobby as a child, Juan has gone on to reach huge success, having created 10 short films, 2 TV series and is currently holding the Guinness World Record for the most awarded short film for his spot ‘Luminaris’, which to date has won 324 awards across the globe.
Elmaz Ekrem’s “The Law of The Sea” returns to the BFI this week to be part of the BFI Future Film Festival where it will be collecting its first laurel. The Random Acts film created for Channel 4 last year will be featured as part of the Modern Life shorts programme which celebrates international shorts from emerging filmmakers aged 16 – 25.
