Outsider welcomes Mazouzi
French director signs to prodco for UK representation.
Paris-based Mazouzi started his directing career making short films. His first, The Corner, was officially selected for The Palm Springs Film Festival, and his second, I Need Shine was screened at Sundance.
Mazouzi moved into commercials while developing new narrative projects and working as a screenwriter. His first ad, Boost Energy for adidas was selected for the 2016 Young Director Award, and in the two years since he has directed work for brands including Seat, Nike, GMF, Société Générale and adidas, and collaborated with the likes of TBWAParis, DDB, CLM.BBDO, C14Torce and Fred & Farid.
“Mustafa’s work is human, observed and naturalistic," Outsider said in a statement. "His visual language can, at times, be frenetic, and in others deeply considered, subtle and poetic, but always precisely crafted and with the intent to move. He is a deeply collaborative filmmaker, which is what, no doubt, makes him so well suited to short form storytelling. We’re very excited about nurturing his fresh, dynamic voice.”
