Brussels · Creative director, visual artist and musician
Each project that Jean-Paul Frenay leads is a new challenge to reinvent himself. Trained in film directing and cinematography in Brussels, he began his career as a visual effects artist and worked with advertising agencies, directing his own commercial projects with brands such as Nike, Nescafé, Renault and Volkswagen over the last 15 years.

For Offf Barcelona he created the short film 'You Are The Canvas', nominated as a finalist in the Excellence in Title Design competition at the SXSW Film Festival 2016.
