Sibling Films adds director Jeff Bitsack
Cannes Lions-winner and Emmy-nominated helmer joins growing production company.
Bitsack is joining Sibling Films with an impressive resume as an agency writer and creative director, working with some of the best shops in the business.
“As Sibling continues to grow, we are thrilled to bring Jeff into the fold and diversify our roster with his talent and expertise,” says Mikon Van Gastel, co-founder and executive creative director at Sibling. “Jeff's unique comedic sensibility and style and ‘actor’s director’ approach, inspire great performances (comedic or otherwise) and authentic moments.”
Most recently Bitsack directed for Eleanor Films, working with Blue Diamond Almond on a new campaign that launched in June. Before moving into the director world full time in 2010, Bitsack worked for Wieden+Kennedy as Associate Creative Director, primarily on their ESPN account. He then moved on to JWT as their Executive Creative Director churning out work for the likes of Swedish Fish, Dominos Pizza, LL Bean, and JetBlue.
After 2010, Bitsack joined Humble TV, where he directed work for the likes of Starburst, Honda, Dunkin Donuts, Lowe’s, MSG Network, and Publix. With spots for Toyota and Subway, his prowess for visual storytelling emerged. Then in 2014, he joined Caviar’s roster collaborating with top agencies to build an impressive and diverse body of work for clients including, Hotels.com, Toyota, VW, Hefty, AT&T, and Frito Lay.
Bitsack has taken home multiple awards over the years for his creative endeavors; One Show Pencils, D&AD pencils, Cannes Lions, Communication Arts honors, and a Grand Clio. His directorial recognitions are not too shabby either, garnering millions of YouTube views, multiple Clios, and earning an Emmy nomination.
“The quality of Sibling’s work is excellent, but what really stood out to me is the exceptional people, from ownership to the production team to our reps, and they always make me feel incredibly well-supported,” says Bitsack.
