Bullitt has added director Scott Weintrob to its roster. He was formerly repped by Wondros for spots and branded content.
Weintrob’s brand of high action storytelling can be seen in his global spots for brands including Audi, Ford, Hyundai, Lenovo, Cadillac, Volvo, and Acura. His work on Walkers’ “Tweet To Eat” for AMV BBDO London won a Cannes Bronze Lion last year in the Social for Mobile competition as well as honors at D&AD and three Creative Circle Awards.
Weintrob directed four seasons of Top Gear for the BBC (worldwide audience 350 million) before moving to the U.S. Weintrob’s early career as a photographer, and his penchant for visual storytelling, is featured in the documentary An Evening In Space, an intimate glimpse into the artistic vision process of the celebrated auteur David LaChapelle. Weintrob’s fashion short with Oscar winner Kim Basinger conveys the depths of knowledge one gains from raising a child. Both were commissioned by Flaunt magazine.
Weintrob is currently helming a definitive streetwear feature documentary on the influence of Bobby Hundreds that was filmed in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Seoul, and features interviews with artists including ASAP Rocky and fashion luminaries like Tommy Hilfiger. Weintrob is also collaborating with the Oscar-winning company Lightbox Entertainment (Sugarman, The Imposter and Man on Wire) on a new documentary series.
“Scott is a unique talent and his impressive work in both short and long-form makes him an ideal complement to our filmmaker roster,” said Bullitt director/co-founder Justin Lin. “His blend of narrative fearlessness and high octane automotive skills are second to none.”
Weintrob related, “It’s great to be in the company of the directors at Bullitt, and to be a part of a studio that is both massively creative and strategic.”
