Having propelled his cinematic acuity into brilliant patterns of expression, award-winning director/editor/producer MARC CADIEUX has developed his colorful sense of film making to embrace projects of infinite proportions. Cadieux has filmed/directed music icon Tom Waits’ Real Gone European Tour, his Orphan’s Tour and the Glitter and Doom Tours.
Cadieux’s unique and visually stylized approach to telling a story on film was also instrumental in boosting American Apparel and CEO Dov Charney’s rapid public awareness. Cadieux produced and directed a vast majority of American Apparel’s earlier and most important in-house films. Cadieux’s distinctive documentary style captured both the essence of Dov’s colorful and at times controversial personality and American Apparel’s socially and sexually charged unorthodox approach to business and fashion. Cadieux has earned numerous nominations and awards, maintaining his persistence for perfection by continually increasing his standards of excellence by pursuing projects of depth.
Filming all over the world, Cadieux directed the documentary of Music Bridges Over Troubled Waters, an historic exchange in Cuba, working closely with legendary director of photography Haskell Wexler and four other crews. Cadieux’s creative efforts were rewarded when he was selected to film Fidel Castro in the Presidential Palace. Chronicling this week-long musical collaboration in Havana, the documentary features Woody Harrelson, Burt Bacharach, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Osborne, Lisa Loeb, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers of The Police, Montell Jordan, The Indigo Girls, Mick Fleetwood, Me’shell Ndegeocello, Jimmy Buffet, Peter Frampton, Duncan Sheik, among many others.
Cadieux freelanced as an art director while living in Paris. His talents were eventually rewarded, landing his first directing assignment for a music video of the French group Raoul Petite, which placed successfully on the MTV charts. Cadieux’s efforts were well received, as he began procuring substantial amounts of work.
Much acclaim of Cadieux’s work ensued, leading him to direct commercials spots for prominent companies such as Pepsi, Nike, Georges Marciano, Nivea, Levi’s (with Peter Berg and Peta Wilson), Gulf Oil, MacDonalds, Pioneer Electronics, Nissan, Chevrolet, among many others. His meticulous eye for casting also enhances the powerful imagery he so gracefully projects to the screen.
With a flourishing reputation as a director, Cadieux extended his endeavors to include documentaries and his award-winning short film La Pension (with Emmanuelle Devos, Francois Negret, Christian Charmetant, Antione Dulery, Herve Briaux and Isabelle Petit-Jacques) under his own company the Directors Film Company in France.
Cadieux has just finished directing, editing and producing a web series “Work in Progress” featuring Marquita Terry, Kristen Miller, Jen Drohan, Vinessa Antione, Nefetari Spencer and Richard T. Jones: www.wiptheseries.com. Marc has co-written several feature length screenplays that are currently in development. These include Written by.
