When you nail the tearjerker so early in your career, what’s next?
Stink’s most recent signing first shot to prominence in 2009 when his short documentary about the death of a beloved dog started circulating on the web, filling millions of eyes with tears. Last Minutes with Oden turned a lot of heads, winning the Documentary Award and Grand Prize at the first ever Vimeo Awards.
Since then he’s racked up a series of short documentaries, branded films and commercials that tug at the heartstrings in all the right ways, building a career that has led him to direct films for brands as mighty as Nike, Vans and Expedia.
His love for film was kindled when his Ogilvy & Mather internship ended and he refused to leave and it looks like the commercial directing scene won’t be able to get rid of him any time soon.
