Leading production company Knucklehead is pleased to announce the signing of internationally acclaimed director Gary Shore for US representation. With existing representation by Knucklehead in the UK, Shore now teams up with Knucklehead’s newly launched US office in Los Angeles.
Dublin-born Gary Shore has carved out a career as a high-end commercials director for major brands such as Samsung, Gatorade, Adidas, Guinness, EDF and UGG. In 2014, he made his feature debut with Dracula Untold, an epic retelling of the origin story of Dracula. The first movie of Shore’s three-picture deal with Universal was a box office success, grossing over $215 million globally and reaching the number one spot for DVD/Blu-Ray sales in the US upon its release.
Shore’s graphic visual style stems in part from his talent as an illustrator. He approaches projects as both director and craftsman, creating his own matte paintings, storyboards and concept design. In 2014, Shore brought this singular artistry to helm three :60 spots for the best-selling Game of War: Fire Age, featuring supermodel Kate Upton.
Previously repped by Anonymous Content in the US, Shore shows his continued support for Knucklehead now that it has officially opened its first stateside outpost, led by Executive Producer Cathleen Kisich.
Matthew Brown in London speaks on behalf of himself and fellow UK EP Tim Katz, saying, “Gary’s reel shows his brilliance for creating feature film-level visuals within the commercial space. We’re extremely excited he has decided to join us in America, as we’ve already had so much success together in the UK."
“The Knucklehead team is beyond thrilled to rep Gary Shore for commercial work globally and are delighted that he has joined forces with us in the US,” remarks Kisich.
