DALLAS — Director Elliot Dillman has signed with Charlieuniformtango for national commercial and VR representation. His directorial experience spans broadcast commercials, branded VR content, music videos, and multi-camera live events.
Some of Dillman’s credits include spots for Kraft, Nerf, GMC and Subway. His recent work with Verizon and Momentum Worldwide received two 2017 Clio Awards for the “Virtual Gridiron” VR experience at Super Bowl 51. In addition, his short film, In Harmony, part of the Oculus VR for Good program, premiered at the Oculus house during the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and was an official selection of SXSW 2017. The film examines the Harmony Project’s work to help Los Angeles kids stay in school through educational music programs.
In Harmony is an example of how a virtual reality film can be a visually stunning adventure, and still create an emotional response to build empathy with audiences.
“I’m excited to join the Charlieuniformtango team because of the strong, yet down to earth leadership of both Lola and Jack, and the turnkey, concept-to-finish resources that this shop has to offer its clients,” says Dillman. “Tango has a long history of exceptional work and I’m honored and humbled by the opportunity to join their roster, and to be supported by such great folks.”
Dillman grew up on film sets and started working regularly as a PA at age 12, for production companies like Gartner and MJZ. While studying at Loyola Marymount University’s School of Film and Television, he simultaneously began his directing career with multi-camera live concert shoots for the ESPN Summer and Winter X Games. Shortly after graduating, he directed feature film tie-in spots for Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. and Paramount Studios, along with advertising campaigns for the Walt Disney Company and Royal Purple Motor Oil, amongst others. He is a proud member of the Directors Guild of America, and resides in Los Angeles.
