I'm Dessil Basmadjian, a director and VFX supervisor based in Paris. I started as a VFX artist around 2004 and my love for story telling gradually led me to live action directing. Through the years I've been working for a wide array of clients, including fashion (Dior, Chanel, Yves Saint laurent, Hermes), music videos (Tyler the Creator, Christine and the Queens, T-pain, Keziah Jones, Pharrell Williams, Major Lazer) and french TV channels.
In 2015, I was offered a fantastic opportunity to get closer to the video game industry by directing all the cinematics of a Warhammer 40k game, Battlefleet Gothic. The wonderful team spirit and the passion at work in the gaming world encouraged to push further in that direction, and I now have the privilege of being head of video communication at Focus Home Interactive, one of the biggest video game publishers in France. Directing all the trailers and working closely with talented developers on their cinematics is a welcome challenge and a precious opportunity to experiment with story telling.
Stay tuned !
