O Positive Adds Director Rodrigo Garcia-Saiz

Rodrigo Garcia-SaizNew York-based production company O Positive announced today the addition of director Rodrigo Garcia-Saiz to their roster for commercial representation in North America and internationally.

“I am an enormous fan of O Positive,” Garcia-Saiz said. “Talking with Jim [Jenkins] and David [Shane], I felt as if I knew them. They really love their work and enjoy their families; we share a similar vibe. Plus, they do some of the best work out there. I appreciate that O Positive is a small company where I can really focus and do great work.”

Garcia-Saiz has a steady track record of award-winning work, including a Cannes Gold Lion win for AMIS “Office” (Ogilvy & Mather Mexico), and the Bronze Lion-winning horror parody “Executed” for Gandhi Bookstores and anti-bullying spot “Playground.” After attending film school at University of Mexico’s prestigious El CUEC, Garcia-Saiz flexed his cinematic muscle at Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s production company as a commercial AD, before forming his own Mexico City production company, Central Films. Read more

W+K Celebrates Facebook AOR Status, Basically Tells Us Everything is Like Facebook

What do doorbells, dancefloors, bridges and airplanes have in common? On first instinct, you’d normally say fuck-all, but in Facebook’s first-ever brand campaign concocted by its new AOR W+K Portland, they all serve as symbols/metaphors for how the social network connects us…or at least that’s what we’re being told. To tell the universal tale of Facebook, W+K to its credit selected the right director in Alejandro G. Iñárritu, the master of intertwining seemingly random characters and situations on a grand scale in films like Babel and Amores Perros.

The filmmaker’s stylings are intact and the music from Austin quiet-to-loud experts Explosions in the Sky provides a nice soundtrack, though we’ll stop short of saying that the spot is as epic as the fact that Facebook has hit 1 billion monthly active users. But hey, since W+K and the social network’s relationship is in its infancy, we’ll just say it’s not too terrible of a start.
