Dapper.tv, Believe Media's burgeoning comedy division, continues to strengthen its growing roster of standout directors with the signing of Alberto Belli.
Millions of hits and countless mentions in the international press including The New York Times, Time, Huffington Post, Deadline, Entertainment
His irreverent short It's Not Porn, It's HBO, which spoofs the fine line between the cable network's explicit content and adult entertainment, came hot off the heels of For Your Consideration, Belli’s parody “ad” for Anne Hathaway’s performance in Les Misérables. The videos went viral one after the other, proving that creative lightning can indeed strike in the same place twice.
Belli's young career already boasts an impressive number of awards and distinctions, beginning with the prestigious John Huston Directing Merit Scholarship at USC, followed by two nods from the Emmy foundation for Best Comedy. Belli won the Young Director Award and was part of the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase at Cannes in 2014.
Already an agency favorite, Belli recently helmed spots for Tide and BCBG Max Azria. He is currently working on a pilot presentation for Comedy Central, as well as branded content for The Onion, College Humor and Leo Burnett Chicago.
Belli's work is a boisterous bull’s-eye for Dapper.tv (AKA the less serious side of Believe), a company specializing in producing comedy content that nails the hat trick of wowing clients, consumers and agency creatives alike.
