Production company Derby has signed live action directing, shooting and editing team Michael Bozzo and Justine Warwick, aka The Bozzwicks.
The duo has created branded content, documentaries, and commercial fare for brands, networks and agencies across varied platforms, with an extensive body of work in the sports category for the likes of HBO, Showtime, NBC Sports, and Sports Illustrated. It’s from this experience that The Bozzwicks honed their ability to discover and bring the larger stories behind the games to life--the challenges, the triumphs, the failures and the drama. This passion for authentic, emotionally driven storytelling has fueled their creative approach in many categories with work for such clients as Delta, Red Bull, NBC, Discovery Channel, History Channel, T-Brand, Epix, Beyonce, David Yurman and Yuengling.
Director and cinematographer Bozzo developed his skills as a DP while traveling the globe. Director and editor Warwick cultivated her command of storytelling over the past 17 years in cutting rooms with work spanning short and long-form content.
The Bozzwicks join Derby from Big Block, where they worked with Derby executive producer Mary Crosse. While there, The Bozzwicks and Crosse collaborated on a long-form documentary brand video for Yuengling, featuring a cinematic story of the family and the brewery.
The Bozzwicks join Derby’s directorial roster which includes Lucas Borrás, Nickolas Duarte and the recently signed Andrew Hardaway. Since its launch last fall, Derby has produced campaigns for General Mills, Johnson & Johnson, S’well, Blistex, NestlePurina, Jim Beam Brands, and Erno Laszlo, among others.
