- NEW YORK
Team Bubbly has signed director Miles Warren, marking his first U.S. commercial representation. Warren is a 2014 Tribeca Film fellow, a 2016 Sundance Ignite fellow, and his most recent short film Bruiser premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival followed by the 2021 SXSW Film Festival. Additionally, he collaborated with Rapper Cakes Da Killa on Visibility Sucks, a 12-minute short documenting the 9-5 trials of a struggling artist during the COVID-19 pandemic.
From projects ranging from film to advertising, Warren exhibits a passion for telling authentic Black stories spanning everyday narratives beyond those rooted in stereotypes. Team Bubbly partner/executive producer Andres Rojas, partner/executive producer at the NYC-based video production agency Team Bubbly, said, “Miles’ singular vision brings a unique perspective to Team Bubbly. His command of story and ability to clearly communicate complex themes makes him an invaluable addition to the team.”
Warren added, “I am so proud to be part of the Team Bubbly family. Ever since joining the team as an intern a few years ago, they have been open to experimentation and creativity, and I’m truly excited to make bold and exciting content alongside them.”
A native New Yorker, Warren graduated from Wesleyan University with a degree in film studies. His first job was with Team Bubbly where he started as an intern, which eventually led to an associate producer role. He was inspired by filmmaking through YouTube amidst the dawn of the Internet age, learning photo and video editing software on his own. Eventually, making short films became an obsession, and technology allowed him to learn the ropes beyond his educational pursuits. His career gained momentum as reflected in such projects for the likes of cutting-edge fashion designer The Blonds and NYC-based mentoring organization New Heights.
