Brent Foster | Director


Brent Foster's work seamlessly marries authentic performances with beautifully art-directed visual effects to create work that is radically human. A true citizen of the world by way of Toronto, Brent has lived in far-off lands ranging from LA to India, where he worked as a photojournalist, first for the Los Angeles Times, and later across the latter freelancing for the New York Times and others. 

His directing styles merge his documentary background defined by authentic performances, often from real people, with carefully considered cinematography and finely crafted visual effects to create work that is polished and genuine. 

His work has won numerous awards including a Silver for New Director of the Year at the Shots Awards and has been shortlisted more than once for the Young Directors Award at Cannes and the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase.
