Dimitri Basil, the director of the video for Vance Joy's Riptide and Flight Facilities' Foreign Language, has joined HSI London for music video and commercial representation in the UK.

Born in Columbia and now based in Sydney, Dimitri's witty lyric-driven video for Vance Joy’s international hit Riptide is presently climbing towards 7.5 million Youtube views. His music video for Flight Facilities' Foreign Language, which replicates a late 1970's TV series title sequence – inspired by the likes of Boogie Nights, early James Bond , Starsky & Hutch and Charlie's Angels – was nominated at the UK Music Video Awards for Best Dance Video. It was also nominated at the Triple J Awards in Australia and shortlisted at the Vimeo Awards for Best Music Video.

Dimitri's work also includes the video for Snakadaktal's Fall Underneath which lines up thriller movie-style vignettes to elements in the track. 

"We are thrilled that Dimitri has signed to HSI London for representation," says Carrie Sutton, music video director's rep at HSI London. "His work blew us away. It is fresh and fun with an immaculate sense of styling, and liberal lashings of retro sex appeal. We have already had a really great reaction from clients to the signing and Dimitri himself has amazing positive energy and an infectious enthusiasm for film-making."
