CANADA has joined The Directors Bureau for commercial and music video representation in the United States. 

The Spanish directing collective best known for their art-driven, highly technical and playful style of directing are led by directors Nico Mendez and Lope Serrano and supported by executive producer Oscar Romagosa. Most recently they directed the video for Phoenix’s Trying to Be Cool (above) - winner of Best Art Direction at the UK Music Video Awards 2013 – and just finished a commercial campaign for Coca-Cola. 

“We were very much attracted to the history of The Directors Bureau.  They have produced the most creative films for some of our favorite directors,” say CANADA. “Joining a director-owned company was something important for us; Roman [Coppola] made us feel welcome as filmmakers.” 

“CANADA is the most exciting work I’ve seen in a long time” says Roman.  “When I saw their work for the first time I had an overwhelming sense of kinship; these were artists I wanted to get to know, support, and learn from.”

“CANADA’s work is incredibly inventive and pushes the boundaries of what filmmaking can be.” says TDB’s Managing Director, Lisa Margulis. “Their voice is beyond unique; we’re incredibly happy to be working with them as part of The Bureau family.”
