We are proud to announce that we have signed Academy Award nominee, Carlos López Estrada to our directorial roster!
The Raya and the Last Dragon Director seamlessly crosses genres with his eclectic body of work, including everything from sleek commercials to indie award-winners, 3D animated blockbusters, and live theatre productions. His clever concept-driven music promos showcase a variety of wildly imaginative techniques, including bringing Billie Eilish to gruesome tears, casting a troop of real life baboons in a video for pop-quartet, Caged Animals, creating a cut out performance from Hamilton star, Daveed Diggs, and bringing together the unexpected pairing of Katy Perry and Pikachu. While his debut feature film, Blindspotting propelled him into notoriety after its premiere at Sundance Film Festival and won a fan in President Obama, it also earned Carlos an ‘Outstanding Directorial Achievement of a First-Time Feature Film’ nomination by the Directors Guild of America, with a succeeding spin off TV sequel premiering in 2021.
Carlos is currently directing a thought-provoking, animated feature documentary in development at Nexus Studios, set to release in 2023, as well as the live-action adaptation of Disney’s Robin Hood.
“Joining the Nexus family is a dream. I’ve been in awe of their creativity and their innovation for a long time. I cannot wait to get started making things together” – Carlos López Estrada.
