Meet Mike Brady. His filmmaking career has taken him all over the world, and he has the stories to prove it. From his start in Chicago, to his adventures shooting all over the world, he has helped to capture great stories about people and products who make a difference. Just ask him about the time he spent standing on a glacier, while a helicopter flew over him shooting, and kept blowing his hat off of his head.
It’s Mike’s love of storytelling that got him into filmmaking, and his natural ability for it that brings people together around a vision. His deep experience across the disciplines of journalism and photography as well as television, movie, and commercial production allows him to approach every project with a perspective that’s broad and unique.
He takes a flexible and honest approach to agency and client relationships, is quick to solve a problem, and will do what it takes to make a great idea even better. Best of all, he does it with a clever sense of humor and the promise that it will never be boring.
As for the stories … you might want to pull up a chair or maybe even some crampons. They’re that good!
Meet Hani Selim. He’s one of those rare people that, once you meet him, you feel like you’ve known him forever. It could be the way he listens, falls into easy conversation, or seems like he just gets it.
Forging friendships while doing great work might be his greatest strength, but resourcefulness is his superpower. He’s been known to pivot to find a new location at the last minute and turn a $27K budget for a car shoot into a Grand Prix at Cannes.
Hani values honesty in partnerships. Combined with his good-natured approach to managing all kinds of personalities, diffusing issues, and being the calm force in stressful situations is the foundation for his strong relationships and the reason why people want to work with him again and again. He prides himself on the repeat business of Durable Goods – a true testament to this.
Building relationships and accomplishing amazing things is what he’s here for. And that feeling that you’ve known him forever? It may just end up that way.
