Bullitt has brought director Nicolas Randall aboard its roster. His credits include the spots “Ghostmode” for Lyft (from agency Lyft San Francisco) and Infiniti’s “Empower the Drive” (Crispin Porter + Bogusky LA), and music videos for Midnight to Monaco as well as A-Trak. Bullitt marks the director’s first U.S. representation.
“Nicolas’ work is both stunning and evocative, and has a highly designed aesthetic that we are excited to add to our roster,” said Bullitt EP Luke Ricci. “Additionally, he’s a renaissance man, blending his experience as a creative director on renowned ad campaigns with his storytelling skills as a director, truly a knockout combo.”
Randall’s endeavors as a director and creative director span a wide array of brands, from luxury and fashion to international music artists. On the agency side, he served as a creative director at the London offices of The Brooklyn Brothers and Dentsu. He’s also freelanced as a creative director for such shops as TBWA\Media Arts Lab, Los Angeles, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, LA, 72andSunny, L.A., Fallon, London, and Wieden+Kennedy, London and Amsterdam. Over the years he has been a creative director on work for such brands as Land Rover, Apple, Canon, and Roberto Cavalli.
Randall described Bullitt as “a company that is uniquely positioned to work on multiple levels in media, and a place where my experience in directing, creative direction, and photography can be united in branded experiences and content.”
The son of a producer/director of British comedy, Randall spent many youthful hours on set captivated by the process. He studied architecture and interior design at London’s Royal College of Art, before applying his design thinking and passion for cinema to production design for film and TV. He then went on to work as an agency art director and creative director, simultaneously cultivating his voice as a director.
Randall enjoys exploring the artful ways to entertain and connect and his collaborations with Ok-Go and Beats, among others, weave together brand and band voice. He was part of the team that developed and directed Daft Signz x Vans showcasing L.A.’s symbolic sign spinners that received a million views in one week.
Originating projects holds a special place for Randall who created an entire visual world for Midnight To Monaco (Island/Universal) in an encompassing branding project that culminated in two recent videos, one of which was voted one of the top narrative music videos of 2016 by Promo News. Randall is also part of the team behind VANDROID, a multi-entertainment property merging film, music, and a comic book series.
Earlier in his career, Randall was on the international directorial roster of The Sweet Shop which repped him in New Zealand, Australia and London.
