Nola Boosts Roster with Director Greg Ramsey

Nola Pictures has further bolstered its diverse directorial roster with the addition of food and tabletop director, Greg Ramsey. Ramsey has embraced the digital age as few other directors have, combining innovative postproduction techniques with live-action footage to create work that is equal parts- art and entertainment.

"It's fantastic what can be done with our footage in post these days," noted Ramsey. "But it's still magic to create an effect 'in camera.'"

"Greg's expertise rounds us out and genuinely complements all we have to offer," noted EP Charlie Curran. "I've admired Greg's artistry and professionalism throughout my career. He's innovative and creative in his approach and he brings a wealth of experience to every shot."

Ramsey's award-winning portfolio includes campaigns for Carrabba's Italian Grill, Boar's Head, Del Taco, Taco Bell, Burger King, KFC, Ziploc, Canon, Minute Maid, Electrolux and Reeves Foundation. His award-winning Fruitopia spots are part of the MoMA's permanent collection. He has built strong relationships with MMB Boston, BBDO New York, Doner Detroit, Draftfcb Chicago, Dentsu, and BBH Shanghai.

"I was drawn to the fact that Nola is a small and focused company that invests greatly in its directors and understands all aspects of the advertising business," stated Ramsey. "It's important to align yourself with a shop that understands the industry's changing dynamics. With its incredible postproduction crew, an outstanding sales staff, and a stellar reputation, no one gets it better than Nola."

Outside of the ad space, Ramsey directed, shot and edited a fundraising film for the Grace Children's Foundation, which involved shooting in Shanghai, Beijing, and, with spokeswoman and narrator Meryl Streep, New York. He also shoots feature film trailers and second unit, with work for Men in Black, The Patriot, The Paper and Blown Away to his credit.

Prior to joining Nola, Ramsey spent time as a director and cameraman at Fahrenheit Films, Celsius Films and Curious Pictures.
