- HOLLYWOOD, Calif.
Director Eli Green has joined Raucous Content for commercial and branded content representation in North America. Already at his new roost, Green has wrapped production on Southwest Airlines for GSD&M and Colgate out of Y&R. Among his many prior credits are Constellation Brands/Tom Gore Vineyards for M/H VCCP, San Francisco, and a Race Trac campaign for R/GA, Austin.
Green has been capturing larger-than-life characters since his formative years shooting award-winning portraits in rural Texas. What emerged was a distinctive passion for the language of ordinary heroes. It was natural, then, that he soon turned to filmmaking. Every performance, in Green’s eyes, is the opportunity to build upon that first pivotal image with a confluence of the real world and performance. Green uses intimate frames to highlight his cast, often likening it to the “portrait of a person.” He explained, “Directing, for me, is a record of bold characters who might be overlooked. If I can take an unexpected individual and tell their story, I walk away satisfied, feeling like I’ve found some kind of connective tissue for the audience.”
Green said he was drawn to Raucous by owners/EPs Phyllis Koenig and Steve Wi. The latter assessed, “Eli has a great eye. He’s an infectious talent who lets actors settle into their roles and be themselves.”
Prior to joining Raucous, Green was handled by production house A Common Thread. He now joins a Raucous directorial roster which includes Jon Barber, Kat Coiro, Keith Ehrlich, Luis Gerard, Adam Gunser, Chris Hooper, Paul Iannacchino, Plummer/Strauss, Vance Malone, Rob McElhenney, Matt Rainwaters, Matt Shakman, Alex Stapleton, and Daniel Strange.
