RÉMI LAUDAT JOINS ACADEMY
18 September 2020

Academy have signed dancer-turned-director Rémi Laudat to their roster for representation.

The Londoner dedicated his youth to arduous dance training across the world, and discovered his passion for film while recovering from an injury. He swapped the stage for the director's chair and hasn't looked back.


While his work is inspired by the human body and its breadth of movement, it would be shortsighted to assume Laudat's work is limited to dance-focused narratives. Rather, he has built a diverse reel of crisply-rendered projects across a variety of media, including lifestyle ads and glossy music promos for major artists.

His promo for Nothing But Thieves' track 'Is Everybody Going Crazy?', for example, embraces the song's crunchy quality and channels a Nineties vibe. Minimalist and swirling, the film creates a dreamlike state which enhances the potential madness at play.


After grinding his way to the top ("I typed London production companies into Google, got all their addresses, printed off my CV and went to every one I could. I just chased around," he explains), it's no wonder his talent for telling impactful stories and appreciation for beauty in all its forms has led Laudat to Academy's door.

His first work with Academy is Stefflon Don's promo for 'Move', which confirms that this creative partnership has a bright future ahead.


For more information about all things Rémi Laudat, get in touch with Academy's George Floyd at george.floyd@academyfilms.com or on 020 7395 4155.
