Los Angeles, CA, September 19, 2023 — Berlin-based director Mario Clement has joined the roster of Chromista’s revered directorial talent. With work ranging from commercials to documentaries, portrait films, and music videos, the award-winning director’s films are packed with emotional depth and refined visuals.
Clement has won Bronze at Cannes Lions for his work with Audi and the film “Mission to the Moon – Part Time Scientists,” and a Silver Stevie at the German Stevie Awards for the Red Bull ad “REMADE.” His additional commercial collaborations include top brands like BMW, Volkswagen, Adidas, Nike, and Oakley.
