Director and DP duo MOM have signed to the Ridley Scott Creative Group’s Black Dog Films for US/UK representation.
MOM tells socially relevant stories with a contemporary lens, allowing the viewer to see the world through a cohesive and unique perspective. The artistic partnership of Skokomish Yakama artist Ray and cinematographer Matt was formed in 2019 with a holistic view to directing and cinematography.
The multi-disciplinary LA-based duo has since created music videos for Krewella, Marzz and Adekunle Gold, and commercial, fashion and social campaigns for the Monroy x Hernan Herdez collaboration launch, eyewear brand Barton Perreira, and most recently Hennessy.
Working with RSA Films’ director Neels Castillon, and photographer Viviane Sassen in a full 360° campaign for Hennessy Paradis, MOM utilized their experimental, textured style to create a series of social films, collages and stills. MOM’s work as the social media unit mirrored the campaign’s approach to shooting stars’ Alicia Keys and Lang Lang, reflecting the intricate elegance of Hennessy’s craft blending music, poetry and nature.
“We feel incredibly honored to have had the opportunity to work with legends like Alicia Keys and Lang Lang alongside Neels and Viviane,” commented MOM. “It says a lot about a company collaborating with creative agencies and production companies like RSA and GoodPeopleWander, that genuinely support artists and their visions. Since our first meeting with RSA and Black Dog we have felt so supported. We have only ever dreamed of these opportunities in an industry filled with such gatekeeping. Our RSA and Black Dog teams already feel like family and have backed us since day one. There is no other family we would rather be a part of. We look forward to the adventures 2023 brings us.”
“We love working with Director and DP duo MOM!,” said Molly Bohas, US EP, Black Dog Films. “They define creative partnership and bring the ultimate dynamism to set. Their attention is always on craft, combining technical and storytelling skills, a distinctive style and efficiency as they work out every detail together. They bring out the best in the talent and crew around them, opening consciousness even, and creating more space and a positive flow for the process to unfold. Just another example of their creative prowess and why we enjoy working with them so much!”
