Content creation studio BODEGA, with bases of operation in NY, L.A. and San Francisco, has signed the directing duo Bright Black, consisting of Austin Rhodes and Ivan Landau, for U.S. representation spanning commercials, branded content and music videos.
Bright Black’s work features a range of captivating cinematography, insane graphics, visual effects and animation anchored around the strength of the central story and message.

In a joint statement, the duo shared, “We’re about unlocking the potential of everyone we work with. We get people excited to tell their stories and allow them to be authentic, honest, and wholly themselves. And it seems to us that these days, that’s what everyone is craving, authenticity. We’re mindful of and actively support inclusivity in the stories we share and the people we work with, from main talent and the brand to the crew itself. We believe in the limitlessness of art and culture to make the world better and we strive to pull our resources and paint our pictures with the largest palette possible.”
BODEGA executive producer Mark Kovacs said, “Ivan and Austin are a multi-talented force whose prime time has come, and we’re excited to partner with them.”
