Valentin Petit had aspirations of becoming a professional motocross rider before a crash helped shift his focus to filmmaking. Valentin’s films combine powerful human stories, conveyed with edge and style, and utterly unique, genre-defying post techniques. The latter are every bit as adrenaline-fueled as the sport he left behind.
Having studied French cinema and graphic design, Valentin brings a razor-sharp knowledge of history and reference to each project, along with a technical, hands-on approach to the concepting and design of post elements. As a result, his body of work and approach is ever-evolving according to the needs or subject matter of each film, all while remaining unmistakably his own. Valentin has directed spots for brands ranging from Ubisoft to Puma, and music videos for artists including Nekfeu and Raphael.
Valentin is based in Paris.
