Red Creek Productions Buenos Aires commercials production
Red Creek wraps its best year yet by showcasing the work of Anthony Mandler as well as the company's new print campaign shot by Urko Suaya.
Mandler, one of the hottest music video and commercial directors in L.A., loves shooting in Buenos Aires and Red Creek is his preferred choice when it comes to production houses. The newest Wyclef Jean video and the latest campaign for Artful Dodger (Rocawear) are examples of Red Creek's 'guerrilla shooting' and of Buenos Aires' flexibility as a location.
Both were shot in 16mm, Artful Dodger by Mandler himself and the Wyclef video by the great John Perez.
Red Creek provides production services, directors and photographers to clients from all over the world.
