Los Angeles – July 18, 2017 – Boutique commercial production company Native Content today announced that Stewart Hendler has joined its directorial roster. Hendler is an acclaimed director who has been on the forefront of digital and experimental original content. He directed “Halo: Forward Unto Dawn,” a five-part digital action series for Microsoft which earned a Primetime Emmy nomination and multiple Streamy Award wins including Best Drama Series. He also directed and executive produced (alongside Bryan Singer) the digital series “H+” for Warner Bros., which features 48 short non-linear episodes that can be rearranged for different storytelling experiences. “H+” also earned several Streamy Awards including Best Director.
As an AICP Award-winning commercial director, Hendler’s clients include VW, Maserati, Budweiser, Adidas, MTV, Mercedes, Motorola, Zune, and others. Prior to joining Native, he was repped by Omaha Pictures, Uber Content, and Bandito Brothers. Hendler is skilled at both live action and CG-heavy projects, and his work both transports viewers and challenges them to think differently.
“Stewart is a really interesting director whether he’s working on commercials or short- or long-form original content – his work always reflects his innovative thinking,” shared Tomer DeVito, founder of Native Content. “We’re excited to collaborate with Stewart on this new chapter.”
“Native strikes the right balance between being established and respected, and being forward thinking and open minded,” said Hendler. “They understand that the landscape is changing and there’s a need to be nimble. Native’s projects come in all shapes and sizes and they’re well-positioned to take on whatever comes next.”
