Durand Le Sueur has spent his entire career involved in the production of commercials in unchartered territories and has over the past 10 years produced/executive produced more than 300 films. Durand firmly believes that that the only constant is change and as Africa evolves, so does he. More and more will the big brands move to produce in country!
In this venture he moves into line producing which will enable him to work with like-minded filmmakers who already produce world class commercials but need the services of a seasoned professional with local knowledge of any country on the African Continent.
Patrick’s passion for photography and film started at the young age of 11. Through being a sponsored skateboarder and traveling the world with a group of creative photographers and film makers he learned the trade by helping out and learning from seasoned pro’s in often times very difficult environments. At the age of 18 Patrick started working for a post production company and just 4 years later started his own post house. From then on it was a straight line to opening up his own commercial film production company in Antwerp, Belgium where he produced well over 300 big, medium and smaller commercials.
Being half Belgian – Half South African Patrick has now partnered up with Durand Le Sueur to service the international production market in Africa. His extensive knowledge of producing in Europe for the past years is a strong asset to accurately service the needs of all types of international productions. Patrick is currently based in Antwerp and Cape Town.
