Maxime Thaysen is a Cape Town-based director, with a lust for storytelling within the realms of fashion, romance, and the occasional dash of comedy, - whilst constantly pushing for a strong, fresh aesthetic.

After graduating from film school, Maxime entered the professional motion picture arena in 2011 by working as creative researcher for South Africa’s top tier TVC directors.

Transitioning in 2015 to conceptualising and producing digital content, Maxime hustled as a one-woman-band, working on every discipline per project, having had the privilege of bringing ideas to life for brands like Sailor Jerry, Jagermeister, Jameson, Pichulik and platforms like Hunger Magazine and Chips!

Shortly after joining the we are_ family, we assisted Maxime in producing her directorial debut - Lonely Cowboy, which went on to get listed as an official selection for 2019’s Bokeh Film Festival.

With the passionate and persistent drive of a story teller, Maxime is an artist with loads of promise.
