Axel Gimenez is a Brooklyn-based agency creative & commercial filmmaker.

What does a "Agency Creative & Commercial Filmmaker" actually do? Glad you asked: Ideation, Producing, Directing, Cinematography, Photography, Editing, Motion Graphics Animation, Editing, Coloring, Sound Mixing, Music Sourcing, Video Compressing. I bring it all together into a seamless, collaborative experience.


Writing about myself and my capabilities always feels a little weird. Thankfully, I have a lot of awesome clients and collaborators that are more than happy to say a few nice words about me. Please take their word instead of mine. :)

The process of filmmaking is killer hardware and bleeding edge software, ingenious apps and countless updates, but the POINT of filmmaking is to connect emotionally to the audience, where the skill set required to ignite the imagination and delight the eye is in no way digital. 

Axel Gimenez literally holds that mastery in the palm of his hand; he handles a camera as a part of his consciousness, with a confidence that honestly represents his natural talent. His participation in a project smooths the path from your finished storyboards to your final edit, as he is able to render what’s in his eye and offer it to your own, creating premium content from any budget or circumstance.

My team and I have worked directly with Axel the past few years on creative client needs including video editing and creation of campaign sizzle reels for industry awards submissions, and Axel always delivers on all projects in an extremely quick turnaround time while still producing high quality work. He’s a pleasure to work with, provides creative suggestions based on his expertise as needed, and is always willing and able to jump on a request, even if it’s last minute. I would highly recommend Axel and hope to work with him on future projects!

I have worked with Axel for a couple years now, and placed him as a freelancer at a variety of our ad agency clients. Our clients consistently requested him back and always said that he was a great asset, providing great creative and development skills to their projects. I recommend him strongly!
