02 Sep Awesome Talent: Pierce Jackson, Director (NYC)
Pierce has been directing film, video and high-concept luxury commercial projects since 2007. He became interested in photography and film growing up in close proximity to New York’s flourishing Soho and East Village art world and an exciting generation of emerging artists working across media in visual arts, music, dance and film. This and the wide-angle compositions of East Asian films were among his earliest inspirations.
Having attended NYU he did a stint in Shanghai before returning to New York to serve as senior Director of PAPER TV at PAPER Magazine.
In 2008 Pierce created an acclaimed “video press release” for the Whitney Museum Biennial and has since gone on to direct videos for clients as diverse as LVMH, the Brooklyn Museum, MOMA and T-Mag (New York Times Style Mag).
Check out his awesome trailer shot recently for the Bolshoi Ballet.
