Director Isaiah Seret has come aboard the commercial roster at Biscuit Filmworks. Known for creating singular worlds with emotional storytelling, strong characters and a very cinematic visual presentation, Seret comes over from PRETTYBIRD where he started directing spots for clients including Adidas, Burger King, Comcast XFinity, Adobe, Coca Cola, Jack Daniels, Microsoft, and Bacardi’s Dewar’s Scotch. He began his professional career directing music videos and has worked with MGMT, Devendra Barnhart, Norah Jones, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Raphael Saadiq and Cults, and his work has been honored with MVPAs, UK Music Video Award and British Arrow Awards.
Born in Kabul and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Seret spent his 20s traveling across Asia cutting his teeth as the first assistant director on films made by Tibetan monks. His unique background informs his diverse portfolio of work, including the D&AD Award-winning “Click, Baby, Click” for Adobe and the recent Intuit-Quickbooks Super Bowl 50 spot for Death Wish Coffee shot by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Claudio Miranda. Seret’s short film Quarantine, a short prequel to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, won a 2015 Webby award.
“There are directors at Biscuit who have influenced me since I started making music videos, and I’m really excited to be working as part of this roster,” said Seret. “I was drawn to Biscuit for the mentorship they provide, and look forward to contributing to the caliber of commercial productions that the company is known for.”
Seret joins a Biscuit directorial roster which includes Noam Murro (who co-founded the company with managing director Shawn Lacy in 2000), Aaron Ruell, Aaron Stoller, Andreas Nilsson, Ayse Altinok, Christopher Riggert, Clay Weiner, Gary Freedman (The Glue Society), Matt Devine (The Glue Society), Michael Downing, Jeff Low, Matt Dilmore, Mundo Sisters, Steve Rogers, and Tony Barry.
