Martin C. Pariseau, director of the acclaimed music video for Kaytranada's Lite Spots, has signed to Caviar in the UK for commercial and music video representation.

Based in Montreal, Pariseau (above) started taking photographs after he found an old 35mm camera that had been thrown away. He studied film production at university in Montreal, before embarking on a career which has seen him helm music videos for the likes of Lary Kidd, Ryan Hemsworth, Allan Kingdom ft Chronixx, and Loud Lary Ajust, before the Kaytranada video for Lite Spots - featuring the DJ producer's sweet relationship with the robot he's created - gained him international attention.

Lite Spots (above) has picked up some notable accolades for a young director including a Vimeo Staff Pick and got him shortlisted for both The Young Directors Award in 2016 and The D&AD Next Director Awards 2017.

“Martin’s Kaytranada 'Lite Spots' video was one of the great videos from last year, and since being shortlisted at D&AD Next Director Awards, we were keen to snap him up before anyone else did," says Caviar London’s Head of Music & Content, Katie Dolan, "His energy and passion is next to none and I am super excited to have the opportunity to work with Martin and develop him in London.”
