- LOS ANGELES
Finnish-born director Misko Iho, who now lives in Los Angeles, has joined Rattling Stick for commercial and branded content representation in the U.S. and U.K.
Iho’s early creativity manifested itself in graffiti artistry before he ventured into computer graphics in the early ‘90s. He worked in VFX for many years on a variety of commercial, film and music projects before directing his own award-winning short film Potilas (The Patient) circa 2010. Since then he has directed notable commercials for clients such as Disney, Nintendo and Marvel, and recently received the Director of the Year award and the Grand Prix at the Finnish Commercial Film Awards for Lidl’s “The Cell.”
Iho--who earlier in his career was repped by production houses Stink in the U.K. and Interrogate in the U.S.--said of his coming aboard the Rattling Stick roster, “I’m always trying to surround myself with peers who I can learn from, and the work of directors like Ringan Ledwidge, Pete Riski, and Daniel Kleinman continues to inspire me and challenges me to up my game. I believe that at Rattling Stick I can keep pushing the limits of my creativity and work on the craft I love with people who share the same passion for cinema.”
Iho, who’s currently developing a feature, was described by Johnnie Frankel, president of Rattling Stick, as a director whose stellar work is marked “by his passion and professionalism.”
