Oliver Power is an award-winning director based in Los Angeles.
His love of film began in Tokyo, while he was eating ramen and editing trailers for Japanese movies.
One day he got a chance to direct a crazy music video that ended up on MTV. This led to shooting digital projects for agencies Hakuhodo and Dentsu.
In search of advertising’s roots he wound up in New York and got into cutting spots at agencies like McCann, Ogilvy, and Saatchi for brands like American Airlines, BMW, Microsoft, Toyota and Verizon.
Yet production beckoned and he decided to get back behind the camera. He has since directed many commercials and has worked with everyone from the Rockettes to Robert De Niro.
Oliver’s short film 411 premiered at the Palm Springs Film Festival and confirmed his passion for telling great stories. Together with a longtime co-conspirator, he is now in development on a TV series called Lonesome Road.
