Production house and entertainment partner m ss ng p eces has signed directors Jason Jeffrey to its live action roster and Mia Lidofsky for special projects. Thus m ss ng p eces becomes the first company to rep each filmmaker for commercial projects in the U.S.
Jeffrey’s work is well regarded for its performance-driven storytelling, offbeat approach and impeccable execution. His first short, A Teachable Moment, premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival and the second, Clown Face, was released as a Vimeo Staff Pick and Short of the Week. Alongside his directing talents, Jeffrey is a skilled screenwriter who has written for Netflix and has a feature film in development.
“Jason’s razor sharp observational eye gives his work an authenticity and dry wit that is so rare in comedy,” said Brian Latt, managing partner at m ss ng p eces.
Lidofsky is a New York-based director, writer, showrunner, and creator of the comedy series Strangers on Facebook Watch. Vice Magazine called Strangers “the best queer comedy on TV right now” and Vulture hailed it as “a big hearted drama.” In addition to the show’s critical acclaim, Out Magazine named Lidofsky as one of its OUT100. Lidofsky recently directed the launch campaign for Jemelle Hill’s new podcast for Spotify.
“Mia’s very human, very funny work exudes an optimism that confronts our challenging times with love. Her voice as a creator and director is as refreshing as it is essential,” said Kate Oppenheim, managing partner of m ss ng p eces.
Lidofsky is joining the company’s special projects roster to take on commercial and non-traditional campaigns in the comedy and lifestyle space.
