Born and raised in the Paris suburbs, LUC JANIN had a few run-ins with the French police for his work as a street artist. In parallel, he was studying fine art and graphic design at the prestigious Penninghen (ESAG) art school in Paris. With a keen interest in the burgeoning skateboard sub culture of the 90s, he began his career working as a graffiti artist and illustrator, painting clubs, skate parks, shop shutters and record covers before moving to the UK. Once in London he shifted to directing title sequences and animation, finally moving into live action film which has been the focus of more recent work.
Luc still enjoys working with both still and moving images, one influencing the other. Key to Luc’s style has been a great combination of meticulously crafted post-production or in-camera techniques alongside raw and real live action to create a lot of technical yet authentic pieces.
Luc is an award-winning director and his work across motion graphics, music videos and commercials has seen him collaborate with major international brands including MTV, BBC, Pepsi, Adidas, Nike, Lacoste, Guinness, Volkswagen and Nissan.
