The Sweet Shop Signs Director Amos LeBlanc

Fresh off his second Cannes Young Director Award win, Amos LeBlanc has signed with The Sweet Shop for international representation. In just a few short years, the MMVA "Director of the Year" has managed to build a reputation as one of the preeminent up-and-comers to watch thanks to his constant stream of unique, trendsetting, and viral work that pushes boundaries and challenges convention.

Originally from Toronto, Canada, LeBlanc first started making skate films at a very young age. His eye for action quickly led to more varied projects and by the time he was eighteen he was working as a professional cinematographer shooting music videos for a long list of mainstream Canadian artists. During this time, LeBlanc enrolled at Sheridan College for Media Arts where he took his many years of experience behind the camera and became a full time director.

Says LeBlanc: "After being on hundreds of sets I've observed and collaborated with so many different types of directors. I knew and had learned so many different techniques, both good and bad."

A multiple awards winner, LeBlanc credits his success to his drive to only make projects that are refreshing and unique. Through distinct visual expression and careful attention to performance he has built a reputation as both a visual auteur and the type of director actors love.

Says Wilf Sweetland, managing partner, The Sweet Shop Australia: "It's not often you come across a body of work that is so striking for so many different reasons. Amos shows a very strong voice in his work. A voice rich in both narrative and visuals - one that is already resonating with agencies here."

Amos' drive has lead to exciting partnerships with such brands as American Express, The Creator Class, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Budweiser among many others. His work in music videos has helped artists like Autoérotique, Thugli, and Keys N Krates make the move from indie darlings to popular favorites thanks to their collaborations on viral videos that have earned millions of views each.

Says Paul Prince, CEO and founding partner, The Sweet Shop: "Amos LeBlanc's signing is yet another example of The Sweet Shop's ongoing commitment to developing new and original talent all across the globe. I am thrilled to see what we create together."
