Audiences easily and happily get lost in the visually stunning world of Paris-based director Fleur Fortuné. Inspired by conceptual and technically challenging projects, Fleur brings not simply a unique perspective, but also a highly creative and vivid imagination.
Though she recently branched off to pursue a solo directing career, Fleur formerly collaborated with creative partner Emmanuel “Manu” Cossu under the name Fleur & Manu. With projects for the likes of Tricky, Bag Raiders and Skrillex, Fleur & Manu quickly established themselves as visionary filmmakers and major players in the world of music videos.
In 2013, the duo directed the celebrated music video for “Pursuit” by Gesaffelstein, the new icon of French Techno. The video was a massive international success and garnered several nominations and awards including UK MVAs for Best Dance Video and Best Visual Effects, as well as a D&AD Yellow Pencil for Best Music Video and Best Special Effects categories. The duo also won a Yellow Pencil for Best Direction for Movement’s “Ivory.”
Through their artistic passions and talent for crafting highly visual pieces, the duo has collaborated with high-powered global brands, such as Apple, Audi, Lacoste, and Sprint.
As a solo director, Fleur continues to innovate her signature style through short films. One of the projects that she is most proud of is rapper Travis Scott’s “BIRDS IN THE TRAP” short film. This 15-minute narrative set in Detroit depicts a tragic accident, dramatically changing Travis’ life and taking him on a journey into the afterlife.
Most recently, she directed the visionary campaign behind Pharrell’s capsule campaign for Chanel, the first in the brand’s history.
Currently, she is developing a feature film, produced by Jean de Forêts, who was behind the French-Belgian horror film RAW. This feature is being developed in tandem with “a philosophical anticipation” feature, produced by NUMBER 9 and FILM 4.
