SKUNK Signs Directing Duo NE-O in the US

SKUNK has announced the signing of Ne-O, the directing duo of Ryoko Tanaka and Jake Knight, for US commercial representation.

Between 2009 and 2015 SKUNK and Ne-O collaborated on numerous projects, some of which included campaigns for NY Lottery, HP, Time Warner Cable, and LG.

Jake’s early career saw him directing music videos for bands like the Chemical Brothers, and Ryoko started out in painting and photography. They combined their styles into a blend of live action, VFX and animation with a curious, warm, human, inventive aesthetic. Ne-O has won accolades from Cannes Lions, AICP, Eurobest and Shots Magazine’s best ads of the last 20 years.

Currently Ne-O is prepping a job and are available at the beginning of August.
