Justin has refined comedic storytelling throughout his work, blending bold performances and well defined characters with a sweeping visual style
Hailing from Tranquility, New Jersey - fast-tracked to Chicago then catapulted to Budapest from Hollywood - Grand Prix winning director Justin Reardon has arrived at The Visionaries for independent freelance representation. Uniquely, this A-list director can now work with any production company in the UK.
Justin’s illustrious career has often raised eyebrows across the creative industries when, after winning a Grand Prix for the iconic ‘Wassup’ Budweiser campaign
, he pivoted his career to follow his righteous path of becoming a director.
In LA, then signed to Anonymous Content, Justin shot hundreds of commercials and quickly amassed a reputation for being one of the top comedy directing commercial directors in the world. Justin has amassed every creative award in the industry, both in the U.S. and Internationally with his work becoming instant hits with people far beyond the film and advertising industries.
In 2014, Justin completed his first comedy feature film, 'Playing It Cool' starring Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Topher Grace and Luke Wilson. Justin is also presently casting for his new off-beat Indy film 'Convention' starring Ben Kingsley, with Rushmore’s Paul Schiff producing.
Big ideas and razor sharp decisions are something of a theme across Justin’s career which is why he left Hollywood a year later to start up his own production company in Budapest called The Royal Budapest Film Company. Justin and his wife Barbara have permanently moved to Budapest, Hungary where they live with their two children, Lola and Leonardo.
Justin Reardon comments: “Outside of the birth of my children, this is the happiest day of my life. Seriously though, as the industry finds its footing in our new normal, I think this partnership makes a lot of sense”.
Corin West, Lemonade and Visionaries founder adds: “Justin’s work has me giggling for hours (there’s that much work in there). He’s an incredible creative talent and the warmest human being you could hope to work with. We can shoot with him in the UK or in his new hometown Budapest, there are so many exciting ways we can approach a production with Justin.”
