Automotive/action director Spiro Razatos has joined Bullitt, marking his first signing with a production house for commercials and branded content. Razatos worked alongside Bullitt co-founders Joe and Anthony Russo as a second unit director on Captain America: Civil War and The Winter Soldier, and with Justin Lin on the Fast and Furious franchise. Razatos’ extensive experience in designing and capturing action-driven narratives makes him an ideal fit for Bullitt’s work in the branded arena.
Bold, complex, high-stakes visuals are an essential part Razatos’ career. He has directed second unit for nearly 75 features including Transformers: The Last Night, Kong: Skull Island, and X-Men: First Class. Razatos is also a renowned and award-winning designer and performer of complex stunts with nearly 200 film and television credits to his name. He’s been nominated for four SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture--for X-Men: First Class, Furious 6, Furious 7, and Captain America: Civil War.
“Spiro is one of the most exciting filmmakers in the automotive space,” said Bullitt president/EP Luke Ricci. “He is in a circle of talent that is truly unique and creates some of the most dynamic and invigorating automotive footage imaginable.”
