For the past three years, Twist Director/DP Rich Michell has enjoyed an ongoing collaboration with 3M, which is currently celebrating the 30th anniversary of its popular “Post-It” brand. Twist’s Michell has directed a series of commercials for 3M and ad agency Grey Advertising. A unique partnership, the Twist-3M collaboration has resulted in the production of 15 spots featuring many of the hugely popular 3M home and office products.

Director/DP Rich Michell has developed a highly stylized look over the past few years, featuring a very clean, minimal aesthetic. He has been able to bring this signature look to his work with clients such as 3M. With a background in fine arts that includes sculpture and photography, Michell has a fine-tuned eye towards composition. Also, as a Director/DP, Michell is used to shooting table-top, as well as performance.
