Alex Courtès joins Nexus Studios.

by Andrew MacGregor

 
 

Nexus Studios have signed revered director Alex Courtès for UK and US representation. Multi-talented Courtès is no stranger to high-profile talent. Having worked with the likes of U2, Kylie Minogue, and the White Stripes, the Frenchman's experimental style continues to draw headline acts.

Alongside his international exploits, Courtès remains a fixture in French electronic music. For example, beatmakers Justice tapped Courtès for this carnal light show.


Stylish and provocative visuals complement the track's flirtatious mantra and his eagerness to challenge audience perceptions is always eye-catching.


Alex has been behind some of the most iconic work in our industry and has consistently shown a knack for defining culture.

Monsieur Courtès has a flair for clever use of stock footage. His collaboration with EDM duo Cassius delivers a split-screen gag-fest underpinned by some industrial-strength funk.


Courtès's new colleagues identify him as the complete package. Nexus ECD Chris O'Reilly: "Alex has been behind some of the most iconic work in our industry and has consistently shown a knack for defining culture... we're delighted he's joined the Nexus talent roster."

Meanwhile, Courtès is keen to get started: "I've admired Nexus for a while and I'm excited about collaborating across an amazing breadth of work - I think we're going to be a good team".

Alex Courtès's reel is available here. To discuss availability, ring Judy Hill on 020 7749 7500 or email her via judy@nexusstudios.com.
