Elcid Asaei is a visually driven storyteller, who specialises in socially-conscious, vibrant and often thought-provoking productions.

He holds an MA in Film Theory from University College London (UCL), and has worked across film, television and journalism. Elcid’s background in reportage led the way towards his filmmaking début with the award-winning short documentary, ‘Revolutionary Roads’, which enjoyed festival successes and went on to win the Current TV Short Cuts prize.

Since then, Elcid has gone on to write, direct, and produce a number of eye-catching fiction films like ‘PIRANHA’ and ‘Sun up Sun down’, each one successively more ambitious, alongside music videos, virals and award-winning promos, as a prelude to his latest unique project ‘Unskin’, which brings together the worlds of film and dance.
