Hey Presto! has added director Anna Mastro to its roster of commercial directors. Mastro brings a breadth of experience to the table having spent the past decade working in film and television directing hit episodes of Gossip Girl, Jane the Virgin and Shameless.
Mastro’s independent feature film Walter stars Andrew J. West (The Walking Dead) and William H. Macy and was released with critical acclaim. The LA Times said Walter is, "Lovely and touching... Director Anna Mastro coaxes a sympathetic performance from West." The New York Daily News said the film is, "crisply directed."
Mastro has directed award winning music videos for artists such as Train, DJ Havana Brown and Leona Lewis with celebrities such as The Pussycat Dolls, Katy Perry and Becky G often featured in her work.
