About the director

Brothers Dimitri and Benjamin Djahanbani have both been active in the multi media production industry for many years. Dimitri sought a career as a freelance director/cameraman and DOP while Benjamin concentrated on refining his skills mainly as an editor in broadcast TV. Around 2002 they began working together on projects and eventually formed their own production company in Belgium, Acidpress. Their work as a production entity consists mostly of music videos and commercials with an occasional documentary and fiction project.
