We are pleased to announce that director Margo Weathers has joined our roster for Canadian representation.
Margo has a stylish and sophisticated eye. Her vibrant and creative reel consists of bold colours and muted tones, and utilizes both dramatic and visual live action along with quirky stop-motion.
“Margo has one of the most unique styles that we’ve seen in a long time,” says Derek Sewell, Executive Producer, Holiday Films. “It’s fresh, cool and intriguing. It’s the kind of work that stands above the clutter on air. Then there’s Margo as a person,” continues Sewell. “She’s every bit as unique and lovely as her work. We welcome her wholeheartedly to Holiday Films and we’re delighted to be the first to bring her talent to the Canadian market.”
Margo jumped into the commercial film production scene this past year, having previously spent ten years at Neiman Marcus Advertising as Senior Executive Art Director and Associate Creative Director. During her tenure there, she introduced moving imagery to the advertising mix of the institution. For two years, Margo conceived and directed the web and in-store commercials as well as several short documentaries to accompany the legendary Art of Fashion Campaigns for the retailer. Through working with photographers Matthew Rolston and Albert Watson on these campaigns, her film work began to attract the attention of advertising agencies. Margo resigned from Neiman Marcus and chose to devote her career full-time to directing and creative direction.
Since launching full-time into her directorial career, Margo has worked on broadcast campaigns for Kohl’s, Vanity Fair Lingerie and Quilted Northern. She also recently completed her first job in Canada through Holiday Films for Juniper Park.
When she’s not in production on commercial films, Margo takes on projects in editorial photography. She recently completed a photography series on the spring 2012 matte colour trend – which she created using breakfast cereal. She also recently shot a portrait series on garage mechanics.
Margo Weathers is with Supply & Demand Integrated for US representation.
