Los Angeles based production company HOUND is pleased to welcome Marc Klasfeld and Mark Pellington to its director roster. 

HOUND will rep Klasfeld for exclusive commercial and music video representation in the U.S. and Pellington for exclusive music video representation in the U.S.

A graduate of NYU film school, Marc Klasfeld is an award-winning director whose ground-breaking music videos for artists including Katy Perry, Jay-Z, Britney Spear, Sia, and Aerosmith have been viewed by billions. His video for Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's See You Again is currently the third most-watched music video on YouTube. Klasfeld’s commercial work similarly engages with culture and breaks boundaries, attracting clients including Target, Nike, NFL and Reebok.
