LightHouse Films has signed director Romain Quirot for exclusive representation in the North American market. Based in Paris, Quirot will bring his poetic, often light-hearted style of filmmaking to commercial and digital projects for NY-headquartered LightHouse
Quirot began his career directing music videos, giving his approach to commercial work a compelling sense of pace, style, and artistic direction that drew the attention of major brands such as Lacoste, L’Oréal, Nestle, YouTube, and KFC. Quirot is also an established narrative filmmaker whose most recent film, The Last Journey of the Enigmatic Paul W.R., is about the sudden disappearance of the world’s only hope for survival. This short premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Festival, and won the 2016 Grand Jury Prize at the Audi Talents Awards.
“Romain has the ability to create highly stylized films with a touch of humor, which is truly refreshing,” said Thibaut Estellon, owner/EP of LightHouse Films. “Romain does more than frame everyday life, he amplifies it, drawing viewers into an exaggerated world full of exhilarating moments that never rest.”
Quirot is currently represented by Premiere Heure in France. He’s brought his distinct style to assorted projects in France and throughout Europe, directing campaigns for agencies such as Ogilvy, Gad & Saatchi, France TV, and Wearesocial.
“I’ve directed several campaigns based in the U.S., but am striving to work in the states more frequently,” said Quirot who was drawn to LightHouse to achieve that goal. He now joins a LightHouse directorial roster which includes Ray Zablocki, Anthony Pellino, Antoine Pai, Claire Benoist, Camille de Galbert, and Pepe Lansky.
