Ugo Mangin is a Parisian filmmaker whose work reflects the world’s coarse reality and subversion. He dives into film with the passion of an explorer. He travels the globe and shoots his inspirations. He scrutinizes, stirs up, and transcribes with instinctive camerawork for a surreal and highly defined aesthetic style.
He started out with artistic projects for bands, mixing great technical skill, a touch of poetry and a hint of decadence. Whether his pieces are premium or low-tech, Ugo is characterised by an exceptional maturity. At 25, Ugo directed his first advertising film for Cacharel, followed by digital films for Yves Saint Laurent, Dior and Louis Vuitton. His fashion film for Pomelo Fashion was shortlisted for Best Director at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival.
