The young, Belgium filmmaker has already established himself in the commercial world, directing spots for worldwide brands including Hermes, Airbnb, Coca-Cola, Toyota, Gatorade, and UNIQLO.
Uyttenhove’s other previous highlights include two Super Bowl campaigns, one for Jeep and the other for Chrysler, featuring Bob Dylan. Arnaud went on to direct the launch spot for AirBnB’s “Experiences,” a Gatorade campaign for the World Cup. Arnaud also directed the short films “Laura” for L’Opéra de Paris; and “Lacrimosa” in collaboration with the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
After studying cinema at ESEC in Paris, Arnaud began his career as an art director before deciding to follow his strong passion for filmmaking. In 2010, he made his directorial debut with the internationally recognized documentary Somewhere to Disappear about the American photographer Alec Soth. The documentary screened at multiple festivals, including Hot Docs and the Hamptons Film Festival.
Now based in Los Angeles, Arnaud is currently writing his first feature and he is in post-production on his short film NOA starring Hopper Penn, which he shot in Tahiti.
