Octopus Inc continues their recruitment drive with the brilliant signing of comedy director Nick Jasenovec.
Nick is known for his fun, quirky storytelling whilst pushing the creative as far as he can. In the commercial world he has carved out strong performances from some formidable A-List talent such as Kobe Bryant, Richard Branson and Aziz Ansari, all with his lighthearted, jovial approach making him a much loved comedy director on set.
He has worked across some of the biggest brands in the world including Google, Nike, Sky, ESPN, Sony Playstation, FedEx, Microsoft as well as his hilarious spots for BT featuring Rebel Wilson and Ryan Reynolds.
His endearing debut feature film “Paper Heart”, about a girl who doesn’t believe in love, won audiences globally and garnered the Waldo Salt Screenwriting award at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in 2009. This was swiftly followed by his documentary short “Para Fuera”, premiering at Sundance and collecting an array of awards including a Cannes Silver Pencil and Young Director Award.
His television credits include shows for HBO and Comedy Central, directing episodes of “New Girl”, “Last Man on Earth”, “Broad City” and “Do You Want To See A Dead Body”.
Nicola Doring & Claire Luke says: "Ever since we produced Nick’s Ryan and Rebel spots for BT, we have had the greatest respect for him and how he works with clients, crew and talent. Comedy performance is a tricky genre to nail, but for Nick it happens so naturally. It is like he has ‘funny' running through his veins. We are delighted to have him on board.”
Of the union, Nick says: "I loved working with Nicola at Caviar London and am thrilled to team up again."
Nick will be represented by Octopus Inc in the UK. To view more of Nick’s work click here.view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessOctopus Inc, Fri, 16 Dec 2022 12:59:43 GMT
