Elena Vazintaris is PF77’s Artist-In-Residence, an evolving experiment in collaborating with, and supporting the development of, a “different kind” of filmmaker. Having made a study of combining movement and filmmaking, Elena crafts ideas that create space on set, allowing both those in front of the lens, and those behind it, to express themselves. Her work maximizes the visual rhythm of a composition, while leaving personality, performance and narrative ample room to play.
As choreographer for talented image makers like Ryan McGinley and Erik Madigan Heck and a movement director for indelible brands brands like Nike, J. Crew, H&M, Converse, The Gap, Hugo Boss, UNIQLO, Banana Republic, Laura Mercier, Vogue, Movado and Kate Spade, she’s familiar with the magic that makes the commercial advertising world move.
We are very excited to foster her distinct talents and present them to our world.
