In his film soundtracks, Vinsent Mettel most often resorts to minimalist and modern styles. In vocal music, he often experiments with genres and styles. So the debut album "Dark Moon" is produced in the style of alternative rock, the second album "Ad Astra" lays at the intersection of pop-rock and indie, and the third acoustic album "J" combines the features of space rock and minimalism.

Cinema, Theatre & Television Courses

In September 2017, Vinsent Mettel launched the Cinema, Theatre and Television Courses (CTTC). The main goal of the courses is to prepare actors directly for work in the frame in a short time.
The dean of CTTC has specially designed a program that includes all 12 major acting schools. The methodological course includes the works of: Meyerhold, Chekhov, Stanislavsky, Strasberg, Adler, Meissner, Artaud, Grotovsky, Brecht, Chubbuck, Spolin and Brook.
Each year, CTTC students appear in four short films and finally get a role in a full-length feature film. A new revolutionary pedagogical method, based on live practice, made the dream of dozens of students about the acting profession come true!
