Louis-Jack is an artist-filmmaker who is absorbed as much in artist moving image as arthouse cinema. Along his journey towards creating PETRICHOR, his BFI-funded debut narrative short, he has made award-winning film essays, dance films and creative documentaries – always seeking to carve his own path with his distinct poetic style. His films are known for their dreamlike, otherworldly quality whilst also dealing with the complex psychology of high stakes performance and the realities of mental health struggles.
In 2019 Louis-Jack was selected as a Film London Lodestar, championing him as a shining light in the future of UK film. His films have been shown at major film festivals, art galleries and museums worldwide – such as the National Art Centre of Tokyo, BFI, ICA and the BP Big Screen at Trafalgar square – whilst also attracting national news coverage on the BBC and premiering on the most respected online platforms including Nowness and Booooom TV. He has worked with exceptional talent from actors Paul Kaye and Clive Russell to the world’s best dancers and athletes, most notably Francesca Hayward and Marcelino Sambé.
To escape his own reality, Louis-Jack spends his time away from filmmaking in the mountains rock climbing and skiing.
