Directorial Duo Trent and Marlena Join Gravy Films for Commercial Representation

Gravy Films today announced the addition of directorial duo Trent and Marlena to its commercial roster. With combined backgrounds in creative advertising and visual arts, Trent and Marlena infuse emotional realism, unexpected charm and a keen cinematic perspective to each of their projects.

The duo shoots collaboratively marrying Marlena’s experience as a writer and creative at DDB, Arnold, and Saatchi & Saatchi on brands such as John Freida, Hershey, New York Lottery and Metro by T-Mobile with Trent’s deep understanding of visual storytelling as a graduate of NYC’s School of Visual Arts and winner of the prestigious Young Directors Award at Cannes in 2015. The duo connect with cast, crew and agency creatives alike to produce the best content they can from an agency, story and visual standpoint.

“We’re thrilled to have Trent and Marlena on the Gravy roster,” said Brent Stoller, owner and EP, Gravy Films. “They bring a unique perspective and a strong understanding of the filmmaking process—plus they’re just a pretty fun pair!”  

Partners in work and life, Trent and Marlena Jaklitsch live in Brooklyn, NY and spend a fair amount of time explaining how to spell their last name.
