Emerging Berlin-based production company BONAPARTE adds Canadian-born director Andrew De Zen to its roster.
Earlier this year, De Zen and BONAPARTE teamed up to shoot the new campaign for Swiss client V-ZUG. Lensed by Joe Cook, the film features world-renowned architect, Valerio Olgiati, and motorsport racing driver, Romain Grosjean.
"The V-ZUG campaign really showcases Andrew’s remarkably crafted cinematic language," says Michael Gugger, director’s rep at BONAPARTE. "A stunning piece that we are all very excited about as a first collab!"
V-ZUG was not Andrew’s first time shooting with such prominent figures as he recently directed, pro-golfer, Rory McIlroy for the fitness tech company, WHOOP. Previous to that, he directed Under Armour’s SS21 'Mental Health' campaign, featuring American Olympian, Michael Phelps, and two-time unified world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua.
Growing up in Mississauga, Ontario, Andrew began exercising his storytelling abilities through short films and music videos. His film 'Places' for the music artist, Alaskan Tapes, received a Vimeo Staff Pick, a shortlist at the Cannes Young Director Awards, and was nominated for the Best Video of The Year at the Juno Awards in 2019. In 2018 he wrote, directed and produced a project titled 'The Wall' which was shortlisted for a Young Director Award. These are just some of the impressive achievements among other work De Zen has done for prominent brands such as Nike, PlayStation, ESPN, SiriusXM and Sony.
