Director Ryan Gibb has joined Yard Dog TV for advertising projects in the U.S. Splitting his time between Southern Utah and British Columbia, Gibb has earned industry recognition for his dynamic and cinematic commercial film projects spanning the genres of action, cars, sports and emotive storytelling.
“From the first moment we spoke to Ryan we knew we wanted to work with him,” said Joe Piccirillo, co-founder and executive producer of Yard Dog.
Beth Pearson, also co-founder and exec producer of Yard Dog--which is a woman-owned certified company--added, “Ryan’s passion and enthusiasm for his work is intoxicating.”
Gibb noted, “At this stage in my career, I have come to realize that the people I surround myself with are of the utmost importance to me. As I talked with various shops for U.S. representation, I was fortunate enough to come across the team at Yard Dog TV. I was immediately struck by their skill and expertise, but what truly resonated with me was their genuine warmth and likability as people. I am ecstatic to embark on this new chapter of my career with Yard Dog TV as my partners and look forward to the dynamic and impactful work that will undoubtedly result from our collaboration.”
Gibb’s commercial projects have included a diverse range of clients in the Canadian ad market, including Honda, Coors, Budweiser, Toronto Blue Jays, Bombardier, Telus, Dairy Farmers of Canada, and New Brunswick Tourism. He continues to be repped in Canada by Toronto-based Holiday Films.
Gibb looks forward to applying his unique visual style to U.S. advertising as he now makes his first major launch in the American market. “I am drawn to the art of motion and the diverse ways to navigate through this world. My goal as a director is to inspire movement, whether it be physical in nature or of an emotional kind.”
