Leading multi-screen storyteller and award-winning director Jason Zada
is the latest addition to UNIT9’s roster. He will be represented in the UK for all media and in the US for interactive and experiential.
Many know Zada for the 2016 feature film The Forest (starring Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer) and the Emmy, D&AD, SXSW and AICP Next Award-winning interactive Facebook Connect experience “Take This Lollipop,” which was seen by 500 million people all over the world, gathering 27 million Facebook likes and making it the fastest growing Facebook app of all time.
Throughout his career Jason Zada has demonstrated an affinity for breaking new ground across multiple screens. His wide body of work includes varied digital and technology-forward projects, music videos, films and traditional TV commercials.
“Jason has an incredibly unique ability and craft; he is able to translate story to any platform he's presented with. Whether that is VR, feature film, game or live, his use of narrative, style and empathy in digital story make him the perfect fit for us here at UNIT9,” says Michelle Craig, Creative Partner UNIT9. “Excited doesn't begin to explain how we feel about bringing Jason aboard our roster.”
UNIT9, AdAge’s’ A-List production company, is one of the leading multidisciplinary production companies working in different interactive areas: Film, AR/VR Animation, Experiential, Innovation and Gaming.
“UNIT9 represents everything I love about production,” says Jason Zada, “[they’re] creative, passionate people that enable storytellers to tell the most unique stories. I have always surrounded myself with people who were able to make the impossible, possible - and UNIT9 is the best there is.”
