ABOUT

Hello internet,

My name is JP, I am a Montreal based director, also known as the one with the beard and glasses from DENT DE CUIR directing duo, which whom I received a bunch of accolades in the music video world.

In the past, I’ve work with record labels & worldwide agencies for clients such as Apple, Instagram, Twitter, Sony Music, Samsung, Ed Banger, Katy Perry, Mike Ronson, LG,  Metronomy, Philips, Modeselektor, Footlocker, Starbucks & AXE among others

I would sometime do creative direction for live and/or interactive projects when asked nicely. 

Otherwise I am focusing on making bold & meaningful films (I’m also fine with random stuff sometime).   

I am a member of the Directors Guild of America.
