Saville Productions has signed multifaceted director Julien Zenier for his first commercial and branded entertainment representation in the U.S. Zenier is a visually-driven director with credits across a wide range of genres including high-fashion, fragrance, lifestyle, luxury cars and music.

After attending film school in Madrid, French native Zenier honed his craft through a diverse collection of projects, including his filmmaking debut, the short titled SNIP which drew praise on the film festival circuit.
