Brooklyn-based production company tinygiant announce the additions of Nicolò Bravetta and Iacopo Carapelli to its director roster for commercial representation in the U.S.

Perhaps a great omen for any automotive director, Nicolò Bravetta hails from the city where Fiat Chrysler has its headquarters: Turin, Italy. His background in music also serves as inspiration for a style that is driven by the rhythms of jazz blending with his keen aesthetic eye. This unique combination had led him to form a visual language well suited to working with luxury automotive companies. 

Bravetta has directed for the powerhouse high-end brands of the automotive industry including Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Maserati. Currently, he is working on a pilot for a Netflix series in Europe and his project for IKEA Keep It At Home just won Best CSR campaign at the European Digital Communication Awards.

Iacopo Carapelli had a strong interest in visual storytelling from an early age. In high school, he founded a collective of young filmmakers and, characteristic of his hands-on approach, experimented with a variety of different media. This experience quickly gained him access to an eclectic mix of commercial and music video projects. Carapelli’s unique spirit of observation and poetic aesthetic can be seen in his work for clients including Levi’s, Napapijiri, and Ray-Ban for whom he directed their global #ProudtoBelong holiday campaign.

Says tinygiant Founder Veronica Diaferia, "We are thrilled to have these two incredible, very unique directors joining us. Nicolò’s strong aesthetic sense and work ethic have been evident since day one. His automotive work, knowledge of VFX, as well as his desire to move toward work that combines human stories with the traditional style of running footage gives us a great opportunity for growth. He has been working internationally for years and he is ready for the U.S. market.”

“Iacopo’s style is so fresh and unique, we are already seeing such love for his work from US agencies who put bold visuals and a fresh approach to framing and composition on their priority list. He’s a joy to collaborate with.”

Carapelli’s first collaboration with tinygiant is an integrated campaign for Ray-Ban; Bravetta’s new global Porsche campaign will launch this fall.
