Jaume Collet-Serra

Jaume Collet-Serra was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain in 1974. In the early 1990s, he moved from Barcelona to Los Angeles to attend film school at Columbia College. Soon after graduating, he began his career as an editor.

From there, Collet-Serra moved into directing music videos and then commercials for products such as PlayStation, Budweiser, MasterCard, Miller Lite, Pontiac, Smirnoff Ice, Renault, Verizon and 7-UP, working with such agencies as McCann-Erickson, J. Walter Thompson, BBDO, and TBWAChiatDay.

Collet-Serra's stylized, surreal and often dark imagery quickly caught the eye of producer Joel Silver, who hired him to direct House of Wax in 2005. Then in 2007, Collet-Serra's love for soccer took him back to Spain to shoot Goal II: Living the Dream.
