WORK WITH THIS GUY

My old art director partner turned film director, Justin Reardon, just signed with Station Films, an excellent newish prodco headed by the legendary Steve Orent. Steve was a co-founder of Hungryman films. He was the exec producer. He has a great lineup of talent.

Justin is a pro. He lives and breathes film and art. Always has. He is truly a creative person. He has an identifiable flavor. He is not afraid. He is great fun to be with. You will come away a better person for having worked with Justin. You’ll learn something. He is a film maker, not a film user.

I remember years ago asking Justin how he wanted to die. He replied that he wanted to die swinging from from a rope while shooting a machine gun.

That sums him up.

This is a great example of what Justin can do. he wrote and directed and everything-ed else this legendary viral. He shot this for his beginner reel. i remember when he told me the idea i was supportive but mystified. it sounded terrible but Justin’s vision and executional prowess made it…GRRREAT!

Happy New Beard!

Justin Reardon, my old art director partner on the Whassup! campaign and now a film director with Anonymous Content LA, created this as an invite for his New Year’s party. Wow. I would have just sent an email!

Justin is from New Jersey.

Making stop sense! (two part)

Here’s another good example of an “aesthetic whole”. My old art director partner Justin Reardon is now a successful director. He created this gem for his beginning directorial reel. It was all his idea. It is insane. And brilliant. And without doubt the best ad you’ll ever see for Nutrigrain bars. Like whassup, it doesn’t ask you to please like it and to please, please laugh. It just overwhelms you. And takes you on a little trip to its own fully-realized little world. It sounded crazy when he described it to me. But he had a vision for it.

It was a sort of an accidental viral hit. Someone from geek.com stumbled upon his site and it spread from there like wildfire. If you haven’t seen this before I highly recommend that you do so now.
