- VENICE, Calif.
Slim, a production company based in Venice, has signed fashion and beauty director Lorenzo Cisi for spot and branded content representation in the American ad market. Slim becomes his first career production house roost in the U.S.
Cisi is a native of Italy who currently resides in London. He has an inventive and imaginative approach to his filmmaking, and often explores contrasting visual techniques and processes. His background in film, VFX, editing and fashion make him a particularly well-rounded directorial talent. Among his recent credits are spots for Maison Margiela, Italian athletic and apparel company Diadora, YSL and Dior Homme. Both his Bally commercial and short film Two of a Kind for Lurve Magazine were nominated for honors at fashion film festivals in Berlin and Milan in 2018.
Tom Weissferdt, Slim owner/EP, said, “Lorenzo brings a singular perspective to each project he directs. I am confident that his skills and background in fashion will easily translate to a wider market here in the United States.”
Cisi views Slim as providing “a great chance to bring my projects to the next level, develop my style experimenting with new formats and collaborating with extraordinary talents in the filmmaking industry.”
Slim’s other directors have been busy of late: ZCDC (Zack Canepari and Drea Cooper) directed Flint Town, a series for Netflix, about the police department in Flint, Mich., that broke in March 2018. Also, Slim picked up two Bronze Lions at this year’s Cannes Festival for the Harry’s Razors film A Man Like You.
