Derek has directed, produced, written, and edited commercials for brands such as HULU, Braun, IAMS, P&G, AG Properties, Colgate, Crest, Spotify, Johnson’s, Simon & Schuster, Care Bears, AJAX, and others. Ultimately, Derek’s goal as a director is to bring engaging content to brands through deep exploration of their mission statement, branded content, and previous respective marketing strategies. For him, this means questioning every image, cut, sound effect, visual movement, actor, and the motivation behind everything and anything that can be seen, heard, or implied on the screen. Feedback, of any type, is of the utmost importance to this company, as it is an important part of our creative process and ensures that the best film is delivered by journey’s end.
