- LOS ANGELES
Director Meg Gàmez has joined SEED Media Arts for exclusive representation spanning commercials and branded content. Gàmez had been working in the advertising arena via Famous After Death, a company for which she's been owner, director and exec producer. She continues to maintain Famous After Death for long-format work with networks, as well as direct-to-client opportunities.
A first-generation Hispanic American, Gàmez was raised just outside Los Angeles. She grew up on the backlots of Hollywood learning from her father, a blockbuster prop fabricator. There she developed an appreciation for the importance of impeccable design and how that relates to good filmmaking, an affinity that is now seen in her unique directing style for visual storytelling and dialogue work.
Her portfolio has been well recognized in the ad community with accolades from Cannes, a Clio Gold, an Art Directors Club Gold, a One Show Pencil, an Addy, and a Silver at Promax/BDA. Her work, created with BBDO Atlanta, “Stop Traffick” for Street Grace, was the Grand Prix winner at 2019 Ad Stars. In 2022, Gàmez was awarded multiple Telly Awards for her work with KFC, featuring Jack Harlow in “No Place Like Home.”
“Meg has an innate sensibility for narrative, capturing intimate nuance within human interactions and circumstances,” said Roy Skillicorn, SEED’s founder. Skillicorn added, “Working with actors or real people, her gift yields intimate, yet powerful and entertaining, storylines, from normal lifestyle situations to fantasy, from humor to documentary work. It’s so authentic it feels like you are right there, within the context of her message.”
Gàmez’s work can be defined as an intersection of modern meets traditional, with an impeccable grasp on new technology, as can be seen in her visceral camera movements for recent work with brands such as Samsonite. She also commands a highly polished cinematic approach to storytelling, as seen within her collaboration with Zum, the 100% carbon neutral bus service for students. Her ability to merge these two styles creates a memorable outcome that connects with a wide range of target audiences.
SEED EP and managing director Bradley Johnson said, “Meg has already launched an impressive directing career, and we’re excited to further amplify her vision as her work continues to flourish.”
