A selection of my favourite music videos I edited.
Esthetic Education is a rock band based in Kiev, Ukraine. Its present members are Louis Franck (vocals), Dmytro Shurov (keyboards), Yuriy Khustochka (bass), Illya Halushko (guitars), and Andriy Nadolsky (drums). It was formed in 2004 after Shurov and Khustochka left the successful Ukrainian band Okean Elzy.
In December 2004, Esthetic Education played at the Bars en Trans Festival in the La Scene club inParis. They also played at the Dublin Castle and the Spitz in London. The Spitz chose the song “Horrible Disaster” for inclusion in their limited edition CD Spitz Live 2.
Beautiful / Music Video
I collaborated with the creative input of Alex Franck as director , my partner Eric Trometer as DOP on this great journey shot in Kiev
making the video is more of an experience than the video itself. It was shot in Kiev in 2004.
Leave Us Alone / Music Video
In 2005 and whilst editing the Film Bosta in Lebanon , I embarked on a journey of hope when Lebanon was yet again
being challenged by political unrest. We shot this ‘Leave Us Alone’ video in an old barber shop in Tabaris area with the amazing Monsieur Hamalian
an old Lebanese armenian man juxtaposing the lives dying in wars all around the world and the mess Lebanon just found itself in.
The video was shot on 35mm and a grade with effects was done in Paris with the amazing talent of ‘Adrien Lepineu‘ (young man in the film)
My Girl / Music Video / Johnny Bardo
Louis Franck, the front singer and composer of Esthetic Education embarks on a new talent and alter ego Johnny Bardo in 2007
this is a funny little cute film we did with the help of friends!
