The Essential List: Fabrice Brovelli

Prior to joining BETC as head of production in 1998, Fabrice Brovelli cut his teeth making music videos for the underground scene and producing teasers for MTV. Since then he’s worked with the likes of Michel Gondry for Air France, Tim Burton for Hollywood Chewing Gum, and was involved in the birth of Evian’s babies, producing the kids’ cover of ‘We Will Rock You’ for the launch spot ‘Voices’.  

Nowadays, he’s still head of production at BETC but also a vice president of the agency, plus president and founder of BETC POP, lab-agency within the BETC umbrella that’s entirely dedicated to pop culture. Outside of work, he and BETC POP managing director Christophe Caurret are signed to the record label PIAS as KCPK and organise and DJ at their PANIK party series all over the world.
