LA-based production studio Florence welcomes award-winning director Will Niava to its talented roster. They will represent Niava for commercial and branded projects as well as music videos.
Splitting his time between West Africa, America, and Montréal, Canada, Will Niava’s work is as expansive as his background. Combining a striking and raw visual aesthetic with visceral storytelling, Niava’s films are provocative and immersive cinematic experiences. His clients have included Amazon Music, MTV, CBS, and artists such as Billie Eilish and H.E.R.
With his first film, Zoo, Niava explores the tenuousness of social order when a troubled man has a chance encounter with three outcasts. Dynamic camerawork and rhythmic editing mirror the emotional state of the film’s characters as their encounter escalates from a misunderstanding to all-out conflict.
