Stink USA Signs Director Owen Trevor
Gifted comedic filmmaker Owen Trevor has joined bicoastal Stink USA. Clients seeking his vision include VW, Pep Boys, Centraal Beheer, Ford, McVities, Fiat, Wild Turkey, Range Rover and Mercedes.
“Owen joins us at such an exciting time for the company,” explains Jeff Baron, EP / Managing Director at STINK USA on Visser's entry into the American market. “The response to his work has been amazing since he joined a few months ago in Europe, and we look forward to a similar response in the US. His knack for comedy is just one aspect of his work. He has a very strong visual style that will no doubt translate into many other areas of filmmaking.”
Trevor initially shot shorts and music videos back home in Australia before directing the globally heralded TV show “Top Gear” for four seasons. Work on commercials and film followed, enabling him to build an impressive batch of entertaining work along the way.
An affinity for unique, offbeat comedy plays throughout Trevor's reel, as seen in “Sweeet” for McVities - work noted by Time Magazine as ‘The Cutest Thing on TV.’ The adorable ad sees animals emerge from packets of biscuits to literally evoke the sweetness of the British snack food brand. Meanwhile, an ability to mine for laughs in the most unlikely of places pays dividends for Trevor in “Assembly” for Walls when uptight representatives at a UN conference push buttons to express their opinions, instead succeeding at buzzing out the '80s hip-hop track ‘Push It’ by Salt-N-Pepa.
“Having recently relocated to the US I’m excited to be joining such an extraordinarily talented roster,” says Trevor on his new digs stateside.“I look forward to working with Jeff and the Stink USA team to find the best creative that will push my work to the next level.”
