July 11, 2011

Sandro Miller has been selected for the Saatchi & Saatchi “Best New Director” Showcase at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Receiving submissions worldwide, the Saatchi & Saatchi Showcase is one of the most popular events during the festival. Known for his arresting celebrity portraits, Cannes was Sandro’s film debut.

“Cannes is like no other advertising event in the world. It brings together the best of the best, with no room for mediocrity. There is inspiration at every turn. Being selected as one of Saatchi and Saatchi’s “Best New Director’s” for Butterflies was a huge honor and an amazing way to start off a career in directing” said Sandro of his time in Cannes.

The film incorporates still photography with motion as it shows John Malkovich as a alienated older man going mad after he loses his family and job. Malkovich is a frequent subject matter for Sandro, and posed for the shoot during a recent visit to Sandro’s Chicago studio. Congratulations to Sandro and his team! Click here to view “Butterflies”.
