Los Angeles-based production company JOJX has announced the addition of multi-faceted Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Pinto to its roster for exclusive commercial representation in the US.
Pinto graduated from the National Film and Television School in London and is a writer and director of short films, music videos, commercials, and other visual content. Recognised by his unique and distinctive approach to each project, his visual effects experience combined with a background in theatre and acting lends an adroitness to his direction of talent, enhancing his ability to draw out convincing performances driven by authentic storytelling. His eye for unique, colourful and cinematic worlds that include a dash of subtle humour has earned him work with global brands including Starbucks, Google, Nespresso, Coca Cola, and McDonald's.
Joe Care, executive producer and partner at JOJX, said: “Pedro brings versatility to his directing, mixing technical mastery with natural storytelling. He is an excellent addition to our team at JOJX and we are thrilled to jump in with him and introduce his voice to the US advertising market.”
Pinto added: “I am eager to open up more opportunities in the US with JOJX,” says Pinto. “I have so much respect for the work they do and the other directors they represent. I’m honoured to be joining them and I can’t wait to see what we can create together.”
Pinto is represented for commercials by Cartello Directors in Asia, the Middle East, Germany, and Italy. In Portugal, he is repped by Krypton Films.
