Adding to its growing list of impressive award winning filmmakers, Oscar nominated director Morgan Spurlock’s commercial production company, Warpaint, recently signed directors Sean Dunne and Braden King for commercial representation.
“Dunne and King each have uniquely beautiful esthetics in their filmmaking,” states Spurlock. “They are such gifted storytellers and I am ecstatic they have become part of Warpaint.”
Sean Dunne is the recipient of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival Best New Documentary Director award for his feature length documentary, ‘OXYANA‘. Getting his start on Vimeo, he amassed over a million online hits for his film ‘THE ARCHIVE‘, a story about one man’s waning career as the curator of the world’s largest collection of vinyl records. Dunne’s talent for capturing the stories of some very unique characters led him to direct the shorts ‘MAN IN VAN‘, about a guy taking on the world on his own terms; ‘THE BOWLER‘, a celebration of booze, broads and bowling; ‘STRAWDAWG‘, about an underground country music legend; and ‘AMERICAN JUGGALO‘, a visually stunning study of the often mocked and misunderstood subculture of the Juggalos – hardcore Insane Clown Posse fans.
