Martin Scali is a storyteller with a strong focus on aesthetics. Each of his films recreates a universe of its own. Colours, spaces, rhythm… He likes to play with genres, a passion reflected in the variety of his work.

He has directed music videos for Major Lazer, Nicki Minaj, Yael Naim, OrelSan and Stromae, ranging from narrative to visual, always with sharp art direction. These projects got him shortlisted at Cannes YDA and the Shots Awards in 2018.

Martin is now developing his advertising work. Among some, he directed the official Paris 2024 Olympic Games campaign, shot in 4 different countries.

On top of that, he is writing and developing fiction projects. His short, Canyon, was a Festival de Clermont-Ferrand 2020 nominee, one of the world’s most prestigious short films events. He is now working on his first feature awarded with the Emergence grant from the French National Cinema Committee.

Oh, also : Martin has been a close collaborator of Wes Anderson, assisting him on the Grand Budapest Hotel and The French Dispatch. Not bad for a mentor.
