Casey Storm has been directing commercials for just over four years, though having grown up an LA native with a vaudevillian comic for a grandpa and a sitcom director for a father, he’s essentially been in the creative and film industry his entire life. His passions have always included acting and directing, but he initially found success as a costume designer. A spur-of-the-moment trip to Reno with some friends including Spike Jonze, whom Storm had never met until then, led to the two becoming quick pals and it is Jonze who suggested Storm try his hand at styling. His first job ended up being the music video for the Beastie Boys’ Sabotage. Following that project, which earned him a handful of awards and a budding relationship with the folks at Propaganda Films, his career took off. Costume design credits include the films Being John Malkovich, Zodiac and Her as well as music videos for Michael Jackson, Notorious B.I.G. and many others. However, directing continued to be a talent he wished to pursue and so in 2013 he began developing his reel with the help of Eric Stern of Anonymous Content. His first directing project was a music video for Maceo Paisley and he has since gone on to work with brands like Paypal, Apple, Hulu, Expedia, Halo Top and more. Storm credits his directing style to being around his father on the set of shows like Mork and Mindy and Alf, and while part of that may be true, his varied past experiences, hard work and natural creative talents also lend themselves well to the trade.
“I’ve known Matt, Mal and Marc for awhile now and am such a fan of the company that they’ve built,” says Storm. “I appreciate the quality of projects that Arts & Sciences take on, both commercial and non, and the way in which they’re approached. I’m excited to join a close-knit roster of directors whose talent I admire and look forward to seeing what we create.”
“Casey’s creative background and relationship with visual comedy serves him well as a director,” says Mal Ward, Managing Partner, Arts & Sciences. “We’re impressed by the caliber of his work and are excited to team up to create more.”
