Filmmaker Jonn Herschend has joined Revelator, an Austin-based video production company specializing in creative-driven and documentary-style commercial video. Led by Matt Muir and Chris Ohlson, Revelator now represents seven directors, working across the spectrum of commercial, feature and branded content.

Herschend is a California-based writer and director with an extensive background working in the contemporary art world. His work has been exhibited nationally, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Telluride Film Festival, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and internationally at the Den Frie Contemporary Art Center and most recently at Sydhavn Train Station in Copenhagen, Denmark.  

Herschend has won two Golden Gate Awards for his film work at the San Francisco International Film Festival, a SECA Award from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and he was included as an artist in the 2014 Whitney Biennial. His commercial experience includes creating marketing concepts and campaigns for brands such as Nike and Levi’s.

After working with Revelator on a long-form documentary this year, Herschend was excited to continue his collaboration with the company.   Revelator partner Chris Ohlson said of Herschend, “He has an incredibly unique voice and with wildly varying experiences in the world of modern art, publishing and commercial production — his vision and breadth of work is a great addition to our family of directors.”
