Elisee Junior St Preux is a Haitian American Filmmaker born in North Miami Beach, FL. Elisee obtained a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Information Technology and a minor in Theatre at Florida Atlantic University. There, he crossed the Upsilon Theta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the Sigma Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi Co-Ed Business Professional Fraternity, Inc.
As a self-taught artist and pure cinephile, Elisee studied from various resources such as books, blogs, podcasts, newspapers, digital articles, and documentaries. Soon after, he created the digital film blog "The Movie Butter Playbook", for cinema enthusiasts, as well as the vintage multi-media company, "À La MODE Films", for Black storytellers in Film and Music. Elisee is a recipient of Indeed's Rising Voices partnered with Lena Waithe's Hillman Grad Productions, a 53rd NAACP Image Awards nominee, a Sundance Ignite Finalist, an HBO Short Film Award recipient at the American Black Film Festival, and a Netflix "Created By" Fellow where he currently holds a script development deal to pen an original feature film with the studio.
In front of the camera, Elisee has appeared in advertisements for Disney's EPCOT, Verizon, AT&T, and U Health, as well as networks including Disney +, National Geographic, Telemundo, BET, and TV One. In addition to his creative work, Elisee is an Advisory Board member of the Morehouse Human Rights Film Festival, a brass musician, a community youth mentor, and mental health advocate.
With a distinct style of vintage storytelling combined with modern cinema, Elisee plans to tell stories he has yet to see on screen. He insists on bringing core themes in his films to the community to spark conversation, promote unity, and empower the youth. He believes that storytelling can heal people and everyday he strives to complete this mission. Ultimately designing his content through explicit dreams, fantastical perception, and pure nostalgia, Elisee's solemn goal is to bear witness and share stories that reflect today, honor the past, and reimagine the future.
Elisee is currently working on his debut feature film shooting in Cap-Haïtien, Haiti.
