Los Angeles-based production company JOJX has signed director Michael McCourt to its roster for exclusive commercial and music video representation in the U.S.
McCourt’s carefully crafted body of work is emotional, evocative, and richly authentic. Known for crafting complex narratives with great nuance and emotional depth, McCourt brings a sense of humanity to the JOJX roster as well as every project he helms. Recent major brand work includes projects for Bose, Buick, Spectrum, Budweiser and Crayola.
JOJX co-founder Jackson Morton says: “We were all immediately drawn to the immense amount of consideration and craft that goes into even the smallest detail of Michael’s films. It’s inspiring to represent a filmmaker who has the ability to take a simple idea and turn it into a deeper cinematic experience for viewers. This natural ability to elevate and bring something uniquely American to each film he directs is a reflection of what inspires us as a company.”
McCourt’s career in filmmaking began when he traveled to Southern California to began honing his skills while working in the fields of film, music video, commercials, and episodic television. He became actively involved in the editing process of filmmaking, expanding his hands-on approach and developing an eye for directing that approaches film from a comprehensive, ‘big-picture’ perspective. This background and his passion for storytelling create powerful pieces of film which completely immerse viewers in a visceral visual experience.
McCourt adds: “The forward thinking of JOJX and the ensemble of creative artists they represent were key factors in making this move. I am constantly looking for ways to develop my craft further and JOJX is a company that is about the art and artist. I feel humbled to be in this company of talent and look forward to what we will make together.”
