Hey Presto! Signs Director Kess For West Coast Representation
- Thursday, Mar. 19, 2020
Hey Presto! has added director Kess to its roster of commercial directors. Kess’ commercial work is a fusion of visual energy and human connection, telling stories that speak directly to your soul whilst honoring the client's vision every step of the way.
Raised amid story tellers, fine art and high fashion, schooled in film, graphic design and advertising, Kess’ work embodies a unique blend of commercial and creative nous. His love for the lyrical and magical informs an extensive background in content creation and narrative-based music videos, taking audiences out of their daily lives to places where reality bends to the unpredictability of fantasy.
Tim Bathurst, EP at Hey Presto! said of Kess: "I look up to Kess, quite literally, he’s 6”8 but that’s not why he’s a great addition to our roster. He’s so well attuned to crafting subtle, honest performances from his actors whilst creating a visual palette that draws you into each and every frame. His background in design, comedic chops and work ethic make him the perfect fit for us on the West Coast. We look forward to this collaboration" (and the occasional sore neck.)
“It is with great joy and gratitude I join with Tim, Emily and the directors of Hey Presto! Their roster is filled with film makers I’ve long admired, which alone is testament to their spirit and ethics. Theirs is the sort of high end, professional and inclusive outfit I dream of having represent me on the west coast. As an Aussie in NY, though, I’m particularly excited to see what writing and directing opportunities we land, so that I can get my lifelong wish to work alongside LA’s crews and creatives — and ultimately give a small bump to their local chiropractic industry. ” said Kess.
