Rodrigo Saavedra

Based in Los Angeles/São Paulo

After graduating from St Martins College of Art and Design in London, he then went on to work as an art director and copywriter for agencies such as Mother London, WCRS London, Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam and as creative director at Santo Buenos Aires. His talent did not go unnoticed, as he brought back a bunch of awards from D&AD, the One Show and Cannes Lions, just to name a few.

The progression to directing was a natural one and in July 2013 Rodrigo made the jump. Things happened pretty quickly from there with major TV and interactive campaigns for Budweiser, Chivas, VW, Havaianas and Corona. His work, for Scrabble, has taken the internet by storm (Time magazine called it “the perfect love story for word nerds”), and won him his first Cannes Lion as a director.

Rodrigo has a strong quirky visual sense of humour, art direction and craft in his films. Storytelling remains key, and his attention to detail, composition, and surroundings show through. His spots become something more than just ads, they become entertainment.

Rodrigo目前生活居住在洛杉矶/圣保罗。从伦敦圣马丁艺术设计学院毕业后,他相继为Mother London, WCRS London, 阿姆斯特丹Wieden & Kennedy等广告公司担任美术指导和文案的工作,之后又在布宜诺斯艾利斯Santo担任创意总监的职位。他凭借个人能力,赢得了D&AD, the One Show和Cannes Lions众多广告节的奖项,而这仅仅是其中的一 部分。

Rodrigo的导演才华在2013年7月有了本质的飞跃。他为Budweiser, Chivas, VW, Havaianas和Corona拍摄的电视广告和互动短片取得了巨大的成功,他的作品《for Scrabble》风靡网络(时代杂志称其为“书呆子 的完美爱情故事”)并赢得了他导演生涯的第一个戛纳广告节奖项。

在他的作品中,不难发现被视觉化的微妙的幽默感,艺术品位和独特的拍摄手法,并紧扣主题,有完整的故事线;另外,他对细节、构图和周围环境的关注贯穿始终,其中的闪光点让人觉得这不仅仅是一部广告作品,更像是一次娱悦的视觉体验
