Zoel Aeschbacher born in Paris in 1993. Of Swiss and US nationalities. Zoel’s first passion was music, which resulted in a fulfilling collaboration with Tony Tran, and the genesis of the duet band Ugly Kids in 2010. This led to subsequent collaboration with another artist from Velvey, Julie Hugo of Solange La Frange, as well as other regional artists (Montreal Jazz Festival, Babelec, etc.) This creative experience, in its unimpeded growth, and guided by his formal studies at ECAL, became manifested in video, clip, and then short film making. And an indisputable transforming passion for filmmaking.
