Olivier LescotOlivier Lescot

Olivier Lescot is known for his vibrant, fluid animation style that blurs the line between traditional music videos and captivating, progressive art forms. The Paris-based director has brought mighty hits like Elton John's "Rocket Man" and Breakbot’s "Baby I’m Yours" to life, featuring his trademark retro-futuristic art that is both nostalgic and fresh. His visual storytelling is not confined to music videos alone; it extends his artistry even to commercials and short films.

What really sets Lescot apart is his ability to capture the rhythm and mood of the music in his animations which are packed with quirky and unexpected twists that keep viewers on their toes. For instance, in the video for "Baby I’m Yours", Lescot tackles love and heartbreak through a pop art extravaganza, replete with aliens, volcanoes, and transforming car-washer women. These vibrant, unusual depictions add a whole new dimension to the music. Despite his distinctive style, Lescot doesn't shy away from experimentation. In one video, he used only two colours - black and neon pink - creating an absorbing, graphic universe fueled with vehemence. In the era of live-action and CGI-dominated videos, Lescot’s work stands as a testament to the timeless potency and universal appeal of traditional animation.
