Jeremy Haccoun is a director whose passion lies in action, adventure and fantasy. Born in France, he was lucky to discover the movies very early thanks to his father who ran a video shop and had set up and old 35mm projector in the garage. Jeremy fed himself with old classics before entering the Spielberg era of the 80s with its many adventure and fantasy films. At the age of 10, Jeremy fell in love with Raiders of the Lost Ark. From then on, he has only one thing in mind: make movies.
Jeremy made his first short at 11, a 40’ fantasy film shot in VHS. Followed dozens of ambitious shorts among which Alchemy, an adventure epic involving 60 blue screen shots and The Battery, a 1’ chain reaction that won a few awards before getting a national release in French theatres.
Jeremy started directing professionally on commercial shoots. After his debut spot for Swatch won an award in Cannes, he went on to direct his first TV spot at age 21 and landed his first million-dollar budget at age 24.
He kept shooting commercials worldwide for clients such as Xbox, Subaru, Coors or Disney, gaining experience of large-scale shoots, big crowds and FX heavy post-productions. Last year, Jeremy directed Leonardo DiCaprio in a movie-like commercial campaign for Chinese group Guandong OPPO mobile Telecom. The shoot lasted for 4 days and took place all over Paris.
Jeremy is currently developing his own feature projects as well as pitching on open assignments. His latest fantasy thriller short film Paradox earned him many awards including Best Short, Best Screenplay, got selected at Tribeca and a dozen other festivals around the world. He is represented by William Morris Endeavor. He lives in Los Angeles.
