Production company m ss ng p eces announced that the Zellner Brothers have joined the company’s roster for commercial representation. 

Brothers and longtime creative collaborators, David and Nathan Zellner are the directing duo behind the non-human nature-survival comedy-drama Sasquatch Sunset, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Riley Keough and executive produced by Ari Aster, in theaters April 12. Signing with m ss ng p eces marks the duo’s first foray into the advertising space.

The Zellner Brothers have been making movies, short films, and music videos together since they were kids growing up in Colorado and Texas, spanning multiple roles including directing, writing, producing, and acting. They’ve screened their work around the world, from the Berlinale to SXSW, premiering five shorts and five features at the Sundance Film Festival, including the Spirit Award-nominated Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter (2014), and Damsel (2018) staring Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska. They also recently directed several episodes of Showtime’s The Curse (2023) starring Emma Stone and created by Nathan Fielder and Benny Safdie.

“David and Nathan’s work has reached new heights this year in their film and television careers,” said Kate Oppenheim, Managing Partner at m ss ng p eces. “They’re telling wholly unique, hilarious, poignant stories and working with some of the best creative talents in the world in the process. We couldn’t be more excited to see how they’ll make their mark on advertising.”

David shared, “We’ve been wanting to expand into commercials for a while, and we found a similar sensibility with the folks at m ss ng p eces that we really responded to. They deeply understand the humor and tone of our film projects, and we developed a quick shorthand right from the start.”

Nathan added, “One of the things we’re most excited about with commercials is being able to exercise our skills and try new things at a faster pace. With features you’re only working on one project for a year or more, so ads are a compelling way for us to stay sharp with our storytelling and bring us closer to our roots in short film.”
