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, Samsung, Ed Banger, Katy Perry, Mark Ronson, LG,  Metronomy, Philips, Lykke Li, Modeselektor, Footlocker, Starbucks & AXE among others

When asked nicely, I would sometime do creative direction for live performance, tv and interactive projects.

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