BODEGA Signs Icelandic Directing Duo Samuel & Gunnar

New York/San Francisco/Los Angeles-based content creation studio BODEGA continues their recent expansion, signing the directing duo of Icelandic filmmakers, Samuel & Gunnar, to the BODEGA roster.

Samuel & Gunnar come with extensive diverse and multi-dimensional experience, bringing huge attention to detail and creating well-observed, visually stunning pieces.

The directing team has gained acclaim from the start of their partnership, winning all the major Icelandic awards for both music videos and commercials. No other directors in Iceland have been nominated, or won as many awards in such a short amount of time.

BODEGA executive producer Mark Kovacs notes: “I'm thrilled to be working with this talented team once again. Their global directing experience is perfectly aligned with today's production needs.”

Samuel & Gunnar’s work has received countless awards and nominations from organizations such as British Arrows Awards, Cannes Lion, The Icelandic Advertising Awards, The Digiday Awards, Epica Awards, Telly Awards, Effie Awards, and Cresta Awards, to name only a few.
