JAURETSI + CRYSTAL
Jauretsi & Crystal are creative peas in a pod who bonded over their first job together, a video series entitled Something Big Something Small, for the New York Time's T Website. Over the course of one hectic week at Art Basel Miami, the kindred spirits discovered their mutual love of documentaries and verite style filmmaking. In 2007, Jauretsi directed and released her first documentary East Of Havana (Sony/BMG) filmed in Cuba. At the same time, Crystal Moselle produced her first feature doc, Excavating Taylor Mead, about Warhol superstar and beat poet, Taylor Mead which screened at the 2006 Whitney Biennial. Since then, the duo have matched wits and formed a content creation collective enlisting innovative artists depending on the project. The vibe is warm and intimate, with portraits that dig a little deeper into its subjects or characters. Jauretsi’s editorial background dates back to a decade of publishing experience with positions at Jane, Details, and Paper Magazine with a current stint as Andre Balazs' Editor for his Standard Culture site. Then there was Mnemosyne, a short film she produced for Director Daphne Guinness, a Webby nominated viral piece announcing her new fragrance by Comme des Garçons. Crystal’s visual style has produced work for Levis, Kate Spade, and Ralph Lauren while also collaborating on underground music videos, one of which was a collaboration with Spike Jonze.
