Kendall Goldberg has joined the Gravy Films roster for US commercial representation. Goldberg is renowned for her ability to seamlessly blend genres, with a comedic focus that centres on well-developed characters.
Hailing from the Chicago suburbs, Goldberg graduated from Chapman University’s film program and quickly made a name for herself directing her first feature film. At 22 years old, she assembled a star-studded cast including Jon Heder, Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine, and Jim O’Heir to star in her debut When Jeff Tried to Save the World.
Goldberg has screened at festivals worldwide and was selected as a Panavision New Filmmaker, a Student Academy Awards Semifinalist, a Women In Film Mentee, and a participant in the Big Vision Empty Wallet Lab. She also co-created, produced, and directed a pilot with Derek Waters and Comedy Central. Her narrative projects quickly led her to advertising and she has since directed campaigns for brands including Nissan, The Athletic, BarkBox, The Honest Company, Carvana, and more.
“I love directing commercials because I find great satisfaction in tackling the challenge of working closely with a lot of people at a fast pace to craft something at a premium level,” said Goldberg. “Joining forces with Gravy feels like a perfect fit – like joining a family where relationships matter most, and that’s refreshing in this industry. Brent and everyone at Gravy are not only passionate about the craft, but also prioritize the power of connection, and that’s always been very important to me.
“I am so incredibly excited about Kendall joining Gravy. Her comedic sensibility, collaborative energy, and charm make her the total package,” said Brent Stoller, Founder and Managing Director at Gravy. “I’ve been absolutely blown away by her hustle. Her talent and appetite to grow will take her far in this business and I feel so fortunate to partner with her on this next stage of her career.”
Goldberg is currently in development on her second feature film, which will be shot in the summer of 2024.
