Paul learned the art of filmmaking at an early age, on the sets of his director father, Leslie Dektor.
Motion picture cameras were his tools growing up, allowing him to explore and experiment with various techniques until he could craft films that were filled with subtle emotions and imbued with an underlying optimism.
Paul creates films that always connect viewers to the characters with his hearty documentary style and cinematic eye. It’s through seemingly unscripted and natural performances or with effortless dialog that he tells stories. Paul has created powerful spots for clients that include AT&T, UPS, Disney, Miller Genuine Draft, Visa and Apes, The Conservation Trust, the latter winning a Lion at the Cannes Film Festival. He recently shot Cisco in London for Leo Burnett.
Paul will shoot his first feature in 2020 starring Peter Dinklage and Shirley Maclaine.
