Eliot Rausch has joined the roster of Stink USA. Eliot is recognized for his honest and thoughtful understanding of the human condition, and has created compelling campaigns for clients including Nike, Duracell, Starbucks, Google, Vans, Expedia, The Red Cross and Under Armour.
Eliot cut his teeth as an editor before moving into directing full time. He has since received widespread acclaim for a body of work that honors the resilience of ordinary, everyday heroes.
‘Last Minutes with Oden’ exemplifies Eliot’s sympathetic leanings, collecting Documentary Award plus Grand Prize at Vimeo Festival + Awards. The sensitive work shares an owner’s final moments with his cancer-stricken dog, the noble partnership between canine and keeper finally at an end ...
Solid storytelling continue with “Trust your Power” for Duracell, work embracing attitude and purpose while following all-pro linebacker Patrick Willis as he recites his personal journey into the NFL. Forgotten heroes of everyday life are also honored, especially poignant in the emotionally charged short “Remember,” a touching portrait of a man whose life is fading away due to the ravages of Alzheimer’s.
Authentic passion is also afoot in “Ready for August” for Under Armour, work shortlisted at AICP. The campaign features inner city kids training with heart and soul to achieve greatness and a place in the NFL. Meanwhile, Eliot’s short film “Find Your Understanding,” created for Expedia was awarded “Most Tear-Jerking Viral Ad of the Year” by Ad Age and one of TED's 10 Best Ads of the Year in 2013.
“I’m beyond excited to have Eliot join the Stink USA family,” says Jeff Baron, Managing Director at Stink USA. “I’ve admired his work for some time, and when the opportunity arose to outline my plans for Stink USA I jumped at it. From a filmic and stylistic standpoint he fits in seamlessly to the culture we’re looking to develop and nurture here at Stink. Eliot is such an open and honest guy, I found him really easy to talk to. It didn’t take very long to see that we both held similar visions.”
“I tend to live my life now by the motto that, ‘relationships are more important than accomplishments’ because it has proven to create the better work and richer experiences in my filmmaking journey,” Eliot outlines on joining Stink USA.
“Stink was an easy transition for representation and creative alignment. I immediately fell in love with the culture – and specifically the community. Jeff Baron leads with integrity, honesty and has a great intuitive voice. In addition, Chairman/EP Daniel Bergmann truly believes in supporting the artist. I am looking forward to the collaboration.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessStink, Tue, 02 Jun 2015 08:39:55 GMT
