'La Folie' by Jessica Batson

Jessica Batson is a director based out of Chicago, IL. Driven by highly-conceptualized and aesthetically ornate content, Jessica tells stories through quirky comedy and strong feminine characters. Jessica directs commercial, brand and art films.

'La Folie was such a treat to work on! Living in a world where color and visuals are the story, we really enjoyed experimenting with what we wanted to say. I tend to work around general themes of daydreaming, curiosity and child-like boredom. La Folie exudes those visuals that inspire wonderment. Thanks to all the hard-working collaborators who brought this vision to life'.
