COLE WEBLEY

It's no exaggeration to say that Cole Webley stood out in the Dominican Republic as much as he stands out now as a director with a young, hip, independent vibe. His time spent in the US and the DR made him fluent in both English and Spanish, and his fluency as both a director and cinematographer has given him a variety of impressive spots in the commercial and music video worlds. He has been shortlisted for a Cannes Young Directors Award and helmed a number of commercials that hinge on storytelling, including ones for Kodak, Volkswagen, Adidas, ESPN and Major League Soccer. We like him because of his friendly, dedicated approach to directing -- and his awesome taste in music, which often drives his spots. (NOTE: REPPED IN THE U.S. HISPANIC MARKET ONLY)
