Stun Creative Launches StunSpots
Directors (l-r) Patrick Biesemans, Nick Enriquez and Jay Karas
Commercial production unit opens with a roster featuring directors Biesemans, Karas, Enriquez
  • --

Stun Creative, a creative agency and production company based in Los Angeles, is launching StunSpots, a commercial production unit with a roster of directors for consumer and entertainment brand commercial spots. The unit will be led by Jared Christensen, Stun Creative’s VP/head of production, who reports directly to Stun founders/principals Mark Feldstein and Brad Roth.

StunSpots' talent roster consists of: Patrick Biesemans, formerly an in-house producer/director at Grey NY, highly regarded for his uniquely stylized and visual approach to storytelling; Jay Karas, a prolific Hollywood comedy director best known for his work in episodic television, including directing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks and Recreation, Workaholics, Raising Hope, Awkward and The Fosters; and Nick Enriquez, a documentary and commercial director known for his dynamic, cinematic style of documentary advertising, working with real people. Enriquez previously was represented by Lonelyleap in NYC.

Celebrating 16 years, Stun Creative built its reputation as Hollywood’s go-to shop for entertainment brands--networks and studios. The company has since moved successfully into consumer brand advertising, most recently shooting top brand commercials including Dove + Men Care Real Strength, a Super Bowl favorite last year; the new Fandango campaign starring SNL comedian Kenan Thompson as movie superfan Miles Mouvay; the Pepsi Perfect commercial celebrating the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future; and "If You Don’t Tell Them, Then Who Will?," a pro-bono effort on Funny Or Die for WomanCare Global featuring actress and activist Jessica Beal and directed by Karas.

“Nick, Jay and Patrick contribute a full range of styles and approaches to StunSpots,” said Christensen. “They have very distinct points of view when it comes to storytelling.  All very accomplished, they construct narratives in their own unique and compelling way through comedy, visual and documentary filmmaking.”
