- LOS ANGELES
PRETTYBIRD has added multidisciplinary filmmaker Jared Knecht to its roster of creatives for representation in the U.S. spanning branded, music and entertainment content.
Knecht has directed integrated advertising campaigns and commercials for global brands such as Toyota, Adidas, Lincoln Motors, Google and Rimowa, among others, and has received multiple honors from the AICP Show, the One Show, and YDA.
Knecht also gained recognition by earning a slot in SHOOT’s 2018 New Directors Showcase unveiled at the DGA Theatre in NYC. At the time Knecht was with production house m ss ng p eces, which was his roost prior to joining PRETTYBIRD.
“I’m excited for PRETTYBIRD because I believe they have a strong sense for meaningful work in commercials, epic tales in music videos, and some raw narratives that are pushing boundaries and being honest,” said Knecht.
Ali Brown, PRETTYBIRD’s VP and executive producer, said of Knecht, “His work not only speaks to the fragility and the strength of the human condition but expresses it in a beautifully elevated way.”
Knecht recently completed a commercial in collaboration with Mullen Lowe’s Los Angeles office and is currently wrapping production on his short film Pure Imagination.
