Oddz is a Paris based directing duo composed by Koya KAMURA and Matthias JENNY. They met in high school and they should have worked more instead of going to movies!

One "studied" abroad in Tokyo, when the other "studied" in New York. (Prestige Worlwide)


Like most directors, they can't actually do anything. So they quickly agreed to work with the best directors of photography, production designers, casting directors or talents in order to deliver the film they've been commisioned for. Then they take all the credit for the film but also assure the crew to have a great on set experience with good vibes, jokes and friendly faces.

This way, they shot commercials in europe, US and asia for brands like Adidas, L'Oréal, Disney or Redbull.

Also working on music video they love to embrace the artist vision and put it in motion but also offer taylor made ideas and conception to materialize the artist DNA in a music video.

As narrative long feature film is the ultimate goal, after 10 years crafting their skills on set, they start their narrative debut with 2 quite successful shortfilms (Homesick and Matador), Matthias and Koya are currently working on TV shows and features... Like every director in the world, probably?
