Los Angeles, CA (March 16, 2016) — Director Isaiah Seret is joining the commercial roster at Biscuit Filmworks. He is a sought after director known for creating singular worlds with emotional storytelling, strong characters and a very cinematic visual presentation.
Seret was born in Kabul, raised in Santa Fe, NM, and spent his twenties traveling across Asia, cutting his teeth as the first assistant director on films made by Tibetan monks. His unique background informs his diverse portfolio of work, including the D&AD Award-winning “Click, Baby, Click” for Adobe and recent Intuit-Quickbooks Super Bowl 50 spot for Death Wish Coffee shot by Academy™ Award-winning cinematographer Claudio Miranda. His short film “Quarantine”, a short prequel to “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” won a 2015 Webby award.
Seret joins Biscuit from Prettybird where he started directing commercials for clients including Adidas, Burger King, Comcast XFinity, Adobe, Coca Cola, Jack Daniels, Microsoft, and Bacardi’s Dewar’s Scotch. He began his professional career directing music videos and has worked with MGMT, Devendra Barnhart, Norah Jones, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Raphael Saadiq and Cults, and his work has been honored with MVPAs, UK Music Video Award and British Arrow Awards.
“There are directors at Biscuit who have influenced me since I started making music videos, and I’m really excited to be working as part of this roster,” said Seret. “I was drawn to Biscuit for the mentorship they provide, and look forward to contributing to the caliber of commercial productions that the company is known for.”
