Canadian production company, Radke, announces Vancouver based director Ross Allen has joined the roster for exclusive representation in Canada.
After graduating with a First Class BA (Honors) in Film and Video from Norwich University of the Arts in 2010, Ross embarked on a parallel path as an agency creative and filmmaker, applying his unique skill set to projects for Red Bull, Under Armour, McDonald’s, DAZN and Lurpak for agencies including Leo Burnett, Taxi and Rethink. In 2017, Ross moved to Vancouver where he has been directing ever since. A mainstay in the Vancouver filmmaking and commercial community, Ross has built an impressive body of work creating ads, music videos, and short films.
Ross’ approach to filmmaking merges the truth of documentary with conceptually driven emotive imagery, making his work personal and human. Ross takes creative and crafts stories that resonate with their audiences. His approach results in work that is visually striking and emotionally impactful.
“I am honoured to be a part of Radke’s roster of talented and creative directors. I am excited to have direct access to world-class creative and world-class crews, allowing my mind to think bigger and braver than ever before”, said Ross.
Ross and his work have been featured in publications such as Shots, LBB, and Director’s Notes. Ross has also garnered accolades including a Vimeo Staff Pick and a nomination for the Young Director Awards. Most recently, Ross wrote, directed, and edited the highly regarded, CanadaHelps COVID spot ‘Heartbeat of the Nation’ that celebrated the service of frontline health care works.
Scott Mackenzie, executive producer and VP at Radke, was drawn to Ross in part due to his “unique vision during the pandemic where he initiated and executed a tremendous original idea. This kind of ambition signified what it takes to succeed in this ever-evolving business”.
Ross is represented exclusively in Canada by Radke.
