An honors graduate of the esteemed University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television, the commercial director known as Jeremy Weiss has lent his distinguished savant’s hand to a list of brands most civilians can only utter in hushed, reverent tones: Amazon, American Airlines, Best Buy, Epson, Hasselblad, LG, Panasonic, Philips, Samsonite, Walmart and more. One could certainly infer that these brands have impeccable taste.
While mere mortals point and shoot, Mr. Weiss indulges in the art of cinematic ballet: dynamic camera movements that might give lesser individuals whiplash, compositions so striking they could be accused of visual assault, and transitions that don't merely shift scenes but transform realities.
And, as an auteur in a realm rife with ponderous introspection, Jeremy slyly weaves through his opuses a thread of humor so sophisticated that it transcends comedy back to seriousness before continuing to pivot and sticks the landing back in comedy, reminiscent of an Olympic gymnastics routine. A nuance, one might add, that only the most astute of audiences would detect.
When not reshaping the very fabric of commercial visual storytelling, Jeremy engages in pursuits of equal gravitas: he is rumored to be able to solve a Rubik’s Cube in less than a minute, and has been known to serenade unsuspecting audiences with the sultry tones of his enviable intermediate ukulele skills.
