Framestore Pictures Signs Directors Anh Vu and Marcus Ubungen
Production company Framestore Pictures has signed two new talents to their roster with directors Anh Vu and Marcus Ubungen.
Anh is a director based in New York City with a background in design and visual effects. Having started at Psyop in 2007 as a Designer, Anh quickly elevated into Psyop’s director collective. To date, Anh has contributed to several award-winning campaigns for brands like Aetna, GE, Volkswagen, JBL, Samsonite, Stand Up To Cancer, Michelin and Silk.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Anh Vu to Framestore Pictures,” says Executive Producer Jennifer Siegel. “She is the perfect mix of visual effects with visual storytelling and has an amazing eye.”
San Francisco native Marcus Ubungen has worked at creative agency Goodby, Silverstein, & Partners directing content for clients Chevrolet, Motorola, Adobe, Google, and Specialized Bikes. In 2014 he turned to directing full-time and went on to shoot campaigns for Gatorade, Samsung, Toyota, and Porsche. His last short film ‘Halloween Meets Gasoline’ was staff picked by Vimeo and screened at SXSW.
“Marcus Ubungen a very clever storyteller which is hard to find these days,” says Executive Producer John Duffin. “His easy demeanour and natural ability to disarm his subjects in order to get to the heart of that story is what sets him apart.”
Both directors have recently launched compelling personal projects; Vu’s ‘Never to Forget’ portrays the lives of women and children from the state of Rajasthan, India and their fight for equality while Ubungen’s ‘Beyond The Fields’ follows child boxers in rural Thailand.
