Justin Abernethy is a Toronto-based director whose body of work balances on the meridian between stills and motion. From the first moment he looked through a lens, Justin fell in love with the ability to create a narrative told through imagery within a single frame. After training in photography, he quickly found himself inspired by the world of motion, where he saw life existing in more than just moments.
With a naturalistic approach to dark surrealism and incredible attention to detail, Justin’s work pushes boundaries while being analytical and strategic. He finds inspiration in things he loves: music, art, and fashion. Whether it be a reference to classic cinema or high-fashion elements, Justin leaves a piece of his personal mosaic behind in every project.
Justin looks forward to connecting with inspiring creatives who push boundaries, and like him, seek to share the different lenses of the world through cinema.
