Great Guns USA Signs Director Erica Dunton

Great Guns USA Signs Director Erica Dunton

Great Guns USA today announces that director Erica Dunton has joined its roster.

A prolific talent, Erica has already directed five independent features - four of which she also wrote and produced. Her films have won numerous awards on the festival circuit, including at Sundance, Milan, Barcelona, and Ojai, and have competed at Tribeca, Slamdance, Stockholm, Moscow, Munich and Madrid.

Having discovered a love for working in a fast paced environment, Erica has also shot 23 episodes of television. These include multiple for HBO Max’s ‘Julia’, Amazon’s hit show ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’, and Apple’s ‘Bad Monkey’. She also returned for a block of ‘Ted Lasso’ after earning a DGA Nomination for her episode ‘Rainbow’, and will be launching two new episodes in May.

Erica’s early influences include her father, BAFTA-winning cinematographer and camera technician Joe Dunton, BSC MBE. Joe invented the video assist, made Stanley Kubrick’s lenses, and was instrumental in the development of anamorphic lenses and other seminal camera technologies. 

Erica Dunton comments: “Great Guns USA understands that the ultimate goal of any piece of visual media is to make an audience feel something. It also knows that style alone cannot do this, and must work hand in hand with clear storytelling and compelling characters. I'm looking forward to working across a spectrum of genres - especially in comedy - with collaborators who have always looked ahead, blazing the trail before them. I'm hoping to bring the breadth of my storytelling experience to the table and create a space at all stages of the journey to ensure ideas are elevated and team spirit flourishes.”

Oliver Fuselier, managing director and executive producer at Great Guns USA, adds: “I first met Erica while searching for a director that had comedy, celebrity, action, and spots with great storytelling on their reel for a client - her name was immediately put on the top of the list. I knew her ability to tell stories and make viewers feel emotion would translate to the TV commercial world. She has a wealth of knowledge of film, camera, and this great industry of ours. We are so excited to welcome Erica to the roster of Great Guns USA.”
