Basile Pierrat is a French director and cinematographer.

Basile has worked on feature films, short films, commercials, music videos, and documentaries in France and around the world.

“Director or director of photography? I was sometimes asked to choose a label. I am part of a generation that has escaped from this type of barrier. My skills complement each other. They allow me to flourish fully as an artist. When I light a movie, I put some of my vision of director into the light. When I direct, I give a fundamental place to the image. With a script or projectors, whatever the tool, my only desire is storytelling. “
