fernando livschitz - wind up bots
Uplifting, dream-like and fun, Argentine film-maker Fernando Livschitz's works playfully transpose fantasy elements into meticulously captured contemporary backdrops - some iconic, others mundane - to charming and mind-boggling effect. His breakthrough work Buenos Aires Inception Park, which won him the Young Directors Award at the Cannes Lions, sends a packed rollercoaster up and down the buildings of his native city while Rush Hour simulates a series of nail-biting near misses at a busy Traffic intersection. His projects went viral rapidly and have been seen by more than 50 million people. "I try to put a smile on people's faces. I believe it's always possible to show the world and ideas in an alternative way, with magic and surprise. As a director I like to express my point of view through creative thinking, showing how great life can be. I strive to capture the magic and energy of any day, casting actors who feel real and raw and using camera movements that emote just as much as the characters it captures and this is what I see for this film" he says. Directing all around the world he has worked for brands such as Mac Donald’s, Renault, Mondelez, Nissan, Coca Cola, Millicano. More recent credits include his opening shots for CBS's The Late Show With Stephen Colbert for New York with millions of views online, a funny Perspective of the world and his Beautiful Chaos vision.
