we all know most directors write this stuff themselves so…
I’m NYC-based director elle ginter. my visual style varies per project but bucking trends is my fav as well as blending grit with stylized cinema - i like pairing opposites together. i hate the word ‘raw.’ i’m a lover of the ocean - it led me to film. i got hired onto my first set at the ripe age of 20 while working on a whale watching boat, only to find myself thrown into a jungle of hollywood features.
I work in various ways to give marginalized voices a platform and generally seek to tell the bravest and most uncomfortable stories possible. i’m an avid athlete (runner, surfer, javelin thrower), which has led to collaborating with pro skateboarders, ballerinas, and olympic hockey players.
some recent brands I’ve worked with include nike, human rights watch, als association, comcast, mcdonald’s and pampers.
i was raised in documentary and then adopted by narrative. there’s no way to get around that you’ll see both influences in my bloodline.
if i go missing, you’ll likely find me IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN SURFING OR STORMING THE NEAREST COFFEE SHOP.
