Zeitgeist land at PICROW
The Hollywood-based hybrid studio/production company/post house signs directing duo.
LA-based studio/production house/post facility hybrid, PICROW Studios, has just signed directing duo Zeitgeist to its roster.
The duo are made up of Danish director/writer Liv Colliander and filmmaker David Henry Gerson.
Sundance award-winning filmmaker Gerson also won the 2016 Student Academy Award for his film All These Voices, while his commercial reel includes spots for Western Digital, The New York Times and surreal excursions into fashion with spec pieces for Prada and Chanel.
Colliander, meanwhile, is best known for writing and directing the critically-lauded short film Dryland. On the ad front, Colliander has directed branding films sponsored by Porsche for the book ROR MIG, a Danish suspense thriller authored by Linda Victoria, and Fishley, a smartphone-based sports fishing app.
“Zeitgeist are extraordinary,” says PICROW founder/director Peter Lang. “They’re great at preproduction, on set, and in post. They have a deep respect for the craft of filmmaking and put a lot on the screen. They’re going to bring a new beauty to advertising.”
“David and I are elated to join PICROW,” adds Colliander. “I think David and I bring something better to lifestyle work. We do it better together. When we pull each other’s strings the work has a color and power that’s on a different level. At the end of the day, we both just love to shoot, shoot, shoot.”
