kaboom productions is thrilled to welcome director Tobin Sanson. The signing of Sanson, his first representation by a national production company, immediately follows his inaugural collaboration with kaboom on a campaign for lifestyle brand Everlane.
With every film, Tobin is dedicated to producing work that stands out in its space. There is always a unique story to be told and a fresh perspective to be taken, as demonstrated in his collaborations with clients Clif Bar, Camelback, Cole Haan, Mountain Hardware, Huckberry and Hanah. He was also part of the creative team that lensed the Walk On Water music video for the band Thirty Seconds to Mars.
“Tobin ’s work embodies a blend of candid humanity in intensely striking environments. You feel immersed in the moment.” says kaboom EP/Founder Lauren Schwartz. “Furthermore, he is an enthusiastic partner in the process that begins well before filming, bringing a deep understanding of how brands need to connect to audiences.”
Tobin is a director, cinematographer, photographer and storyteller. Tobin is known as a creative resource; whether extending the narrative from film to print for a complete campaign, to harnessing his editing and DP talents to support a project’s distinct needs, he’s a director who gives everything to bringing compelling work to life.
Born in the mountains of Colorado, Tobin was raised to appreciate the majesty of the natural world. This immense power is a never-ending source inspiration, compelling him to create stories driven by the rawness and authenticity the natural world demands. Early skate and surf films, and a love of the wild, led Tobin to work for brands, both as an in-house creative and helming brand films as an independent director.
