There are many aspects to directing, but my favorite is working with actors. While I come in with a strong vision, I enjoy collaborating to create something greater than ourselves. From the story, the scene work is the foundation everything else is built upon.
Thus, I created the series, Karrassed. It is the actors and me. We meet, guerilla-style, at a location, develop characters and a scene, and film. I operate the camera handheld, and we dance, searching for truth and finding it. I love the rawness and purity of it. I hope that you enjoy it too.
Axel Gimenez directs episodic+film in various genres, including sci-fi, horror, and the absurd.
I also direct commercials, specializing in comedy and lifestyle.
I like my commercials funny and heartfelt. And my narrative dark. Very dark.
It's like Yin & Yang—Fire & Ice.
