Sidney Van Wichelen started doing what he loves right after finishing filmschool: telling intimate human stories through film. His strength? Finding the beauty in the ordinary.
Growing up in the bustling quarter of Molenbeek (Brussels), Sidney embraces the energy that surrounds him and channels it into creating vibrant films.
By identifying the right approach for each narrative, he shapes every story into a unique film. He knows better than any other directors how to express his characters’ feelings and create emotion using a strong narrative thread.
Campaign after campaign, he’s been capable of depicting human comedy to serve the brands' best interest and mark the viewers’ mind. Sidney’s films are both funny and sensitive, he treats his advertising spots like short films, using very cinematic shots and a strong sense of narration.
Defined by his hands-on approach, he explores every option and gets the most out of each opportunity. Sidney’s experiences as an advertising creative helped him appreciate the true value of ideas and how they are just as important as good aesthetics when it comes to clear communication.
