Nexus Studios has added director Shane Griffin to its global roster for commercial representation. He brings a media-straddling blend of high-end artistic design, live-action filmmaking and emerging technologies to the studio lineup.

Griffin’s body of work--which seamlessly blends surrealism with futuristic themes--spans such clients as Apple, BMW, Givenchy and Guinness. He has also collaborated on music promos for artists like Wiz Khalifa, and has exhibited his artwork globally. 

Griffin’s design and artistic approach were honed through his time as a director at Psyop, creative director at Method Studios, global creative director for Los York, and head of motion design at Man vs. Machine. His film, Chromatic, was even screened at the TED conference. Griffin has earned such accolades as being named a Louis Vuitton “200 Visionary,” and ADC Young Gun. He has also received honors such as a Cannes Gold Lion and Shark Awards. Additionally, he has shared his expertise by speaking and judging at industry events such as AEG, ADC, Forward Festival Berlin, and OFFF Tel Aviv.

The signing of Griffin aligns with Nexus’ focus on spatial computing production and follows the launch of its motion design division, Nexus Design Studio. Griffin’s proven ability to combine live action and design opens up exciting possibilities in emerging fields like AI and real-time filmmaking, a collaboration ripe with potential.

Chris O’Reilly, co-founder and chief creative officer at Nexus Studios, said, “Shane’s very much a unique voice in high-end visual filmmaking. His artful blending of sophisticated design and cinematic live-action sets an aspirational standard. He is also very versed in how innovation is changing storytelling and its appropriate application. So we’re of course thrilled to have him join our roster and it’s an exciting collaboration ahead.”
