Crossroads is pleased to announce the recent signing of dynamic directing duo, the Goetz Brothers. Kevin and Michael Goetz not only share DNA but they share a parallel vision for filmmaking that complements each other's strengths. The pair work together harmoniously, investing a similar visual style and narrative direction into every project. Their work is noted for their ability to pull natural, relaxed performances from the actors, something they learned first hand from their father, famed stage and film actor Peter Michael Goetz. The Goetz brothers have tackled ads for top companies such as Nissan, State Farm, McDonalds, Home Depot, and BMW to name a few. They earned an Emmy nomination for creating the main title sequence for
The Wonderful World of Disney
on ABC and have garnered recognition from AICP for their work on Adidas
. The duo spent many years directing through The Joneses, before calling Crossroads home.
Owner/EP Cami Taylor comments on the addition, "The Goetz Brothers are a perfect match for the creative boundaries we continually strive to break at Crossroads. We've expanded greatly over the last two quarters, and The Goetz Brothers are the perfect example of cutting edge talent that can work across all mediums."
Michael earned a Masters degree in Film from USC's School of Cinema while Kevin received a Bachelor's in Film from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. While still in school, they collectively penned the screenplay for Tycus starring Dennis Hopper. New York based EP Sharon Lew boasts, "Kevin and Michael have a narrative style that evokes such a strong sense of humanity and reality into every piece. Their style and quality of work is so in tune with one another they're consistently able to pull memorable performances out of their actors."
Crossroads continues to seek out multi-faceted directors to further their position as a leading content creation and media firm with unlimited access to the entertainment industry.
The sales efforts for Crossroads are headed by New York-based EP/Head Of Sales Sharon Lew and independents Samantha Tuttlebee and Kamila Prokop of Muse also on the east coast, staffer Mary Matusz out west, and senior in-house rep Janice Harryman in the Midwest.
