Director and visual artist Andrew Thomas Huang has joined production company Serial Pictures for North American representation spanning commercials, branded entertainment, and music videos.
Huang has worked extensively with Icelandic artist Bjork, as well as Thom Yorke, Perfume Genius, and British director Joe Wright, among others, and has helmed commercials for global brands such as Lexus and Samsung. Huang’s most recent project, the emotionally evocative music video for “Cellophane” by FKA twigs, taps into his overarching theme of body-identity and its transient nature, while showcasing the director’s narrative-driven world-building.
Huang--who was most recently at production house Strangelove prior to joining Serial Pictures--is known for his experimental mix of live-action and animation techniques, yielding storytelling that transports viewers on metaphorical, immersive journeys. After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Southern California, Huang kickstarted his career with a series of short films including Solipsist, which was selected for the 2012 Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase and was awarded a Special Jury Prize for Experimental Short at Slamdance earlier that same year. His newest short, Kiss of the Rabbit God, recently made its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Huang is a Cinereach Fellow, a recent fellow in Film Independent’s Directors Lab, and a recipient of the K Period Media Fellowship grant. His film and video work have been exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art, NYC; MoMA PS1; The Barbican Centre, London; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Huang carries on his visual aesthetic as he continues his foray into narrative feature films.
“Andrew’s approach to film making is daring, innovative, and captures your imagination. He has the rare talent to create work that makes you dream yet it lets you feel connected to a visceral reality,” said Serial Pictures’ founding partner Violaine Etienne.
Huang said of Serial Pictures, “Their commitment to high-caliber, artist-driven work is inspiring, and I’m honored to join their roster of amazing talent.”
A joint venture with Anonymous Content, Serial Pictures is headquartered in New York and Los Angeles, with a global network of partners throughout Europe.
