- LOS ANGELES
Production company Rattling Stick has signed director Pablo Maestres for his first commercial representation in the U.S. market.
Maestres’ credits include campaigns for brands including Volkswagen, Smirnoff and Sprint. His signing comes on the heels of his first job with Rattling Stick--for 215McCann to launch Microsoft’s Minecraft Earth; the spot debuted at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference last month.
The director’s work has screened at film festivals and events worldwide, garnering various Ciclope, SXSW, Cannes, UKMVA and Berlin Film Festival nominations, to name a few.
Rattling Stick’s co-founder and director Ringan Ledwidge notes, “It was immediately clear to us that Pablo sees the world in a unique and extraordinary way, which comes through beautifully across his films. Pablo’s not only a great addition to Rattling Stick’s U.S. roster, but he’s just a breath of fresh air and an exciting new voice for the American market.”
Added Maestres, “I couldn’t think of a better company to step into the U.S. market with. I’ve had the privilege of working with Rattling Stick and have admired the company’s commitment to sustaining the creative integrity of the work. Their ethos is in alignment with the values I uphold as a director and I am excited to continue to work together to create captivating work.”
Maestres’ foray into capturing gorgeous visuals started early, launching his career as a Barcelona-based music photographer, which transitioned into directing international music videos that turned heads and garnered numerous accolades. The Barcelona-based filmmaker’s passion for music hasn’t subsided as can be clearly seen in his latest stunning and boundlessly energetic video for Barns Courtney’s single “You and I.”
