Directors

Lope Serrano aka CANADA

Lope Serrano directs, writes and draws and in his best works an echo threading these three skills together can be heard; music videos, commercials or shorts in the reality of which there is a fugue. A sensual, dreamy and plush fugue. Through that kaleidoscopic void a gorilla in love can be seen, “The Less I Know the Better” (Tame Impala), dancing fireworks (“LA” for Mujeres), a dessert in the prime of life, (“Crème Caramel” with Nowness), or a yarn of wool that seeks its destiny in the short “Sound and Vision” (commissioned for David Bowie’s exhibition). His commercial work has allowed him to expand the motives for this fugue for clients such as H&M, Coca-Cola, Instagram, EasyJet, Budweiser, Boots or Miu-Miu.

Directors

Nicolás Méndez aka CANADA

Nicolás Méndez directs and writes with the same intensity a small nocturnal bonfire illuminates a whole forest: his ideas and images shine because they are irreverent, delicate and energetic. Projects like “Bombay” for El Guincho, “Trying to be Cool” for Phoenix, “The Less I know the Better” for Tame Impala, “Up All Night” for Beck or “Malamente” and “Pienso en Tu Mirá” for Rosalía speak for themselves of a sardonic spirit which is emotional at the same time. The international success of all of them, as well as his role as an advertising director for clients such as Easyjet, Cadbury’s, Budweiser, Chupa-Chups or Huawei, are the best demonstration of this.

REKORDER celebrates 250 years BEETHOVEN and his fight against deafness.

The music video is danced by deaf Hip-Hop World champion Kassandra Wedel, directed by the renowned director Nehemias Colindres and produced by Rekorder.

Did you know that Ludwig van Beethoven was deaf when he wrote most of his masterpieces? He didn’t allow his disability to silence him.

As part of its PLAY ON! PLAY, AGAINST ALL ODDS campaign REKORDER produced an extraordinary music video featuring deaf hip-hop dance champion Kassandra Wedel performing to the iconic recording of Beethoven’s fifth symphony (1st movement) made by Herbert von Karajan and the Berliner Philharmoniker.

Produced to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, the video highlights the composer’s incredible genius and the relevance of his life’s message for society today.

When they return back to the earth after having lived in space, after all, they are confronted with an existential conflict of not recognizing themselves anymore.

An intriguing film with a strong, cinematic and modern approach.

NIMIC by Yorgos Lanthimos

Trailer II

NIMIC.

NIMIC is a new short film project from
Yorgos Lanthimos produced by Rekorder, Superprime Films and Merman London in association with creative agency Droga5
starring Matt Dillon and Daphne Patakia.

Written with longtime collaborator Efthymis Filippou and featuring Oscar-nominated actor Matt Dillon and Daphne Patakia (Winner of the EFP’s Rising Star in 2016), the twelve minute short film tells the story of a professional cellist and an encounter he has on the subway which has unexpected and far-reaching ramification on his life. Living firmly in Lanthimos’ unique cinematic universe, the film asks questions about identity, perception, relationships and circularity.

Yorgos Lanthimos says of the film
“I was glad to be given the opportunity to work on a shorter format that can be sometimes challenging but quite rewarding. We developed a script starting from a very intriguing initial idea and concept, and enjoyed great creative freedom during the realisation of the film. It is always very exciting to be invited to think outside the box and wrestle with stimulating ideas.”

Rekorder is the partner-in-crime providing a foundation for creativity.

“We are always thrilled to work with extraordinary talents in visual storytelling. To be able to provide a singular artist whose work refuses to be contained by any perceived limits of cinema – a safe space stocked with all the resources he may need to create, is our signature service.”
– Werner Klemm, CEO of Rekorder

Daphne Patakia says
“I was very impressed by the way Yorgos is invested in the work he does, it is very inspiring.”

Matt Dillon says
“It’s rare that an established director like Yorgos makes a short film and I was happy to be part of it. Yorgos likes to take chances and give the audience something to chew on. It’s kind of a surreal film with universal themes of family and identity. The structure is a bit of a puzzle so you’re never quite sure what’s really going on. I had my own ideas and would ask Yorgos but he would just smile and say nothing. I think he prefers to let the film do the talking.”

NIMIC world premiered on August 9th, 2019 at the Locarno Film Festival.

Trailer I

NIMIC was made in partnership with MINI as part of their ongoing commitment to celebrate the power of creativity. Thinking outside the box has always driven MINI’s engagement, as their patronage of NIMIC demonstrates once again.

Rekorder proudly presents Tu Danses, a music video for french pop musician, Gabriel Auguste.

Directed by Nick & Chloé.

It is the second chapter to our earlier Slowset project.

We explore the theme of the Slow Dance through the gaze of youth.

"Believing that the slow dance is nearing extinction, here is our call to arms to nurture and revive this classic courting ritual. The contemporary dance and music world has turned their back on this mystical, awkward but pragmatic way to encounter the object of your desire. Our gaze fixed downwards on smart phones missing the human life in our proximity. We went back to Berlin, renowned for its techno, mono dancing scene. We gathered a cast of teenagers to come along to our neo futuristic set which acted as a kind of quarantine zone where they could practise the art of the Slow Dance without ridicule."

BMW | Art Journey | Jamal Cyrus

Rekorder accompanied Jamal Cyrus, the latest winner of BMW Art Journey, Jamal Cyrus on his exploration of the Afro-Atlantic in London. Jamal Cyrus traveled across continents retracing migrations within the African Diaspora.

The Houston based artist creates a body of work that spans sculpture, painting, visual arts and performance. The notion of the Afro-Atlantic is, in his own words, “an intercontinental and multinational geography describing the circulation of ideas between Africa, Europe, and the Americas.”

BMW | IAA 2017

Rekorder had the honor of being the Lead Media Production for BMW at the IAA 2017 in Frankfurt. Our goal was to create an artistically unique and interactive event for visitors to experience the amazing world of BMW. The centerpiece of the IAA 2017 was the centrally located Vision Loop. With more than 500 seats and a 150-metre-long circuit, the Vision Loop created a dense and immediate visitor experience, shedding a new light on Sheer Driving Pleasure.

As part of the all-day highlight shows, a kinetic media setup with eight robotic media panels created a constantly transforming stage design. After months of planning and producing, we are proud to say: THIS IS TOMORROW. NOW.
