We’re excited to share the signing of three new directors. Rich Lee, Russ Lamoureux, and directing duo The Cronenweths are new additions to our already impressive roster.
With these directors and cinematographers come veteran experience and unique yet equally impressive distinctive artistic visions.
Upon moving to Los Angeles, Rich Lee landed a job at Walt Disney Imagineering where he learned CG. From there he moved to Pixel Liberation Front and used his art department and CG skills to learn pre visualization. With his combined experience in art department and visual effects, Rich Lee has scored credits in films such as Pirates of the Caribbean and I Am Legend. His commercial reel includes spots for major brands; Hyundai, Nissan, Beats by Dre. He has also directed an extensive list of music videos for artists such as Maroon 5, Eminem, and The Black Eyed Peas.
Russ Lamoureux began his career as a copywriter for agencies including Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, TBWA\Chiat Day, BBDO, and Deutsch. His skill for crafting short stories blossomed thus influencing his decision to return to school to study filmmaking and take his craft to the next level. In 2003, just three years after he created his first short film, Russ was named a director to watch by Creativity and featured in the Saatchi New Directors Showcase at Cannes. Other short films of his include Wild Cards and The Gift.
”Its always been key for us to keep our roster streamlined and to cultivate a balanced mix of experienced and emerging talent.”
