Little Fish Hooks Director Clement Gharini
Little Fish has announced its signing of director Clement Gharini. Click here to view Clement's reel.
Clement was born right on the other side of the Channel at a time where internet did not exist (but way after the Eiffel Tower)
Known as a solid 'Swiss Army Knife' filmmaker, Clement directs actors, writes scripts, operates cameras, composes soundtracks and is a qualified Nuke operator.
Describing himself as half Romantic and half Punk, Clement has been kicked out of France for not being French enough (He has zero conversation about anything supposedly french, is unable to order wine at the restaurant, is clueless about the exact nature of a french-kiss and he publicly admitted having not read Proust) He then discovered that the grass was actually greener in the UK.
Clement has worked for 10 years as a camera operator for the Flying Cam system on high profile productions such as Harry Potter, Mission Impossible, Robin Hood, G.I. Joe and many more high octane features. Moving into Visual Effects he then joined The Mill in London 2010 where he won an internal competition by being the only entrant. (It's still unclear what happened to the other contenders.)
Continuing along his Directorial path Clement studied Beauty and Make-up at London College of Fashion where he spent most of his time trying to explain to the “other” girls that you don't have to be gay to love make-up and that gender equality works both ways! He was then discovered by the Little Fishes in 2014 where he has since been stuck to his Directing chair honing his skills for commericals where he has recently shot two stunning new Beauty films. Clement was Awarded Grand Winner of the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Film Challenge in 2013 by jury members Guillermo Del Toro and Benedict Cumberbacth. Del Toro (Pacific Rim, Pan's Labyrinth) said Clements's film was " visually compelling and storytelling competent. Very intriguing, very intelligent and sophisticated."
Clement has been quoted saying that he is looking for “semantic collisions and clashes between real and inner worlds”. Nobody really understands what that means but apparently it sounds really cool in the short films festival circuit.
