Aero Film is very proud of their diverse roster. Besides our heavy-lifting commercial directors, we have a premiere group of specialty directors that work in documentaries, visual effects, television, etc., but do commercials with us as well. It keeps them out of trouble and makes us very happy, so it’s a win-win.
First up! Michael Hartog. Michael has been the go-to VFX supervisor for Aero directors for years. Last November, a project for Fidelity through Boston based ad agency Arnold came across our desk. It was perfect for Michael’s directorial debut. Pairing up with Radium in Santa Monica, Michael helmed the team for “Around the World.” He created a CG world out of paper (well, digital paper) depicting all the major business trading hubs around the world. The spot has just garnered a Silver Telly Award, so many accolades to Michael and the Radium Crew! Click and check out the spot here.
Come back next week for more on our Special Director’s Series with TV director Nelson McCormick and fashion-photographers turned Bravo Reality stars Markus Klinko and Indrani! Also, watch for James Mangold’s latest film Knight and Day in theatres June 25th!
