Bicoastal production studio m ss ng p eces has added award-winning director Jason Zada to its talent roster for worldwide representation spanning live-action and immersive fare. Zada is known for his non-traditional interactive storytelling, with viral campaigns that have been viewed by billions around the world.
A pioneer in digital and interactive storytelling for over 20 years, Zada in his work uses narrative to deftly explore new technologies and methods of connection. He has collaborated with leading brands, agencies, and talent on work that has earned numerous awards including from the Webbys, Clios, Cannes Lions, D&AD, The One Show, and many more. Some of Zada’s most notable interactive projects include the OfficeMax holiday campaign “Elf Yourself,” the Emmy Award-winning horror short film and Facebook application “Take This Lollipop,” and “Remote Control Tourist” for Australia’s Tourism Victoria. In 2016 he released his first feature film through Focus Features, The Forest starring Natalie Dormer and Taylor Kinney. Zada also previously founded the Evolution Bureau ad agency, growing it into a renowned 65-person shop, leading to an acquisition by Omnicom.
Prior to joining m ss ng p eces, Zada was most recently repped on the live-action front by Fancy Content. Earlier he had been handled for live action and immersive content by PRETTYBIRD.
