Nexus Studios Adds Dynamic Directing Duo Mike & Payne to its Eclectic Roster

Nexus Studios announces the signing of Mike & Payne to its global talent roster. Mike & Payne’s unique, youthful perspective and passion for craft, sees their work move between the dark, the surreal and the dynamic. 

Unbound by medium or platform, the duo are able to create seamlessly across 3D, 2D and a hybrid of live action and animation. Brought up on a filmic diet of science fiction and anime films, their work is driven by a fascination with imaginative, fantastical and cinematic storytelling.

The pair have a meticulous eye for detail and find pleasure in creating explosive visuals – bringing characters to life that do incredible things in impossible worlds for the likes of Riot Games, Adidas, Nike, SKII, Honda and Spotify. Their work has been featured in Vimeo Staff picks, Stash and Promo News and has won Gold and Silver Promax awards.

Nexus Studios founder and executive creative director Christopher O'Reilly explains: “We're delighted to welcome Mike & Payne to our talent roster. We were bowled over by the duo’s powerful creative vision, backed by an incredible work ethic and genuine passion for craft. I’m excited to see what we create together.”
