Our friend and director Fabio Jansen passed away on the night of Sunday 22 October.
He started directing music videos after an early career in DJ-ing, music production and all-round international adventuring. It gave him an instinctive understanding of the rhythms of visual communication. He had a real passion for style and a visceral contemporary aesthetic. His films are eclectic and innovative. Whatever he shot looked fresh and fabulous, from actors and athletes to cars and clothes.
Originally from Milan, he became a true Internationalist, as likely to be found in Shanghai, Barcelona or Mexico City as in his home town. His reel has a global reach too, with satisfied clients and agencies all over the world.
He was everything you’d expect from an energetically creative Italian director – always unfailingly charming, whatever the challenges. We shall miss him dearly.
