Michel & Nico
Brothers and former rugby players, Michel + Nico, hail from Biarritz, the rugby-loving South West of France. Having hung up their boots, Michel spent some time as a social worker and Nico as an architect before they began their directing journey. Their passion and ambition is what you’d come to expect from athletes. Their style is, in many ways, a reflection of their former lives... real, honest, sensitive and beautiful. First practising their craft through self-funded documentaries based around various sports, Michel + Nico taught themselves to film, light, edit, post, and animate their own work. Their ability to connect with real characters on-screen and a strong cinematic flair soon grabbed the attention of the advertising world and it wasn’t long before they were applying their new-found skills to commercials.
