Production house Partizan has brought director Olivier Gondry back onto its directing roster.

Olivier Gondry made his breakthrough with commercials for HP, featuring his brother Michel and Vera Wang. Since then, the Paris-based director has gone on to collaborate with brands including Audi, YouTube, Fiat, Microsoft, Starbucks, Nissan, Canon, Gillette, True Religion, Etsy and Trip Advisor.

He has also created promos for artists Daft Punk, OK Go, and The Vines.

Originally known as a visual effects artist, Gondry first turned to directing at Partizan.

“Partizan has been part of my life since forever,” remarks Olivier. “First as a brother watching Michel climbing the steps. I can still remember him telling me, ‘I met this producer [Georges Bermann]…’ I was proud and curious already! It was here that I first transitioned from special effects to directing. I’m so happy to return to Partizan, to be back home and back with my brother.”

Olivier Gondry is also currently in development on a long-form narrative project.
