Rhythm + Hues Commercial Studios has added multiple award-winner and industry icon Steve Chase to its director roster. Chase comes to R+H with a treasure trove of awards including Clios, Cannes Lions, and the Directors Guild of America (DGA) Award among others for classic work that has helped celebrated brands make their way into the cultural consciousness. One such spot for AT&T even made its way to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.
A true industry veteran, Chase has shot it all. Known as much for his commercial work with comedy, dialogue, sports, celebrities and automotive action as he is for branded content and helming concept-based productions on a massive scale or shooting VFX-heavy projects, the directorʼs lauded talent and experience are appreciated by major agencies and brands worldwide.
“Iʼm tremendously excited about having Steve join us,” said R+H Executive Producer Paul Babb. “His directorial style and sense of imagery have always put him at the top of my and many other EPʼs lists Iʼm sure. I canʼt wait to let him loose to play with all the tools that are available to him at R+H.”
The director is equally enthused about his new production roost.
“Joining Paul Babb and R+H is a natural fit for me. The scale and polish of their work and the commitment to doing it right is something I’ve always strived for,” said Chase. “They do what I do, and I do what they do. What took me so long? It’s destiny, and I’m honored to have them in my corner.”
Chase comes to Rhythm + Hues from Curious Pictures, and from Canada originally.
