Creative production studio Los York has signed Brazilian filmmaker Gabriel Novis. This marks the director and cinematographer’s first representation in the U.S. He continues to be handled in Brazil by Mymama Films, in Paris by Left, and in Portugal by Bro.

Novis’ passion for film is matched only by his love of surfing, which has taken him around the world and created invaluable opportunities for cross-cultural storytelling. In his recent 2021 campaign for the sports equipment company Oakley, Novis directed surf icon and Olympic gold medalist Ítalo Ferreira, juxtaposing his status as a global surf champion with his humble roots as the son of a fisherman from a small coastal town in northern Brazil. The film garnered a Bronze Clio Sports award and a Vimeo Staff Pick and earned additional critical acclaim as a finalist at Ciclope and the 1.4 Awards. Novis’ other collaborations as a director and DP include brands such as Nike, Chloe, Louis Vuitton, Corona, Samsung, Coca-Cola, Getty Images and Remy Martin.

Novis said, “The right producers and crew make it possible to create the most amazing work and the love that everyone at Los York has for their craft is very inspiring to me. I continue to feel fortunate to be able to do what I’m passionate about every day with great people.”

Seth Epstein, founder/executive producer/director at Los York, added, “Gabriel is truly multidisciplinary. He comes from the thriving creative community in Brazil and is a multilingual artist, traveler, director, and cinematographer. He embodies the global nomad of the arts that is the Los York archetype.”
