Director Vincent René-Lortie has joined The Corner Shop for representation in the U.S. and U.K./Amsterdam. This marks his first career representation in those markets.
A breakthrough director from Canada, René-Lortie has been recognized with a D&AD Graphite Pencil for Best Direction on the basis of Simon Leoza’s “La Nuèe” and a UKMVA 2020 Best Choreography (for Brittney Canda) on the strength of Sheena Ko’s “Wrap Me Up”
René-Lortie’s most recent Young Director Awards Gold in Video Art for the dance short film “Sit Still” which re-imagines how choreography can work in narratives. He navigates the inner emotions of seven-year old Adeline, expressing herself purely through street dance Krump, replacing the traditional beat-centric style with an introspective score by Alaskan Tapes, compelling listeners to hear what she has to say.
