Sebastien started his career in Los Angeles as an actor, whilst studying at The California State University. Following the completion of his BA in Film Production, he won a scholarship award for his student film by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association. After having a successful career as TV Commercial actor, both in LA and Sydney, Sebastien moved behind the camera to become a strong performer director.
His unique ability to draw out true, honest and real performances is a function of the relaxed environment he creates. Whether he’s directing a montage spot with no dialogue or a comedic or dramatic performance, the defining feature of Sebastien’s work is a beautiful, cinematic look. His talent in this area is demonstrated by the fact that the majority of Sebastien’s commercials and music videos have been recognised with Australian Cinematography Awards.
His first feature film NERVE was released June 2014.
