STADIUM Signs Director Louis Browne
While founded in Venice Beach, STADIUM expanded to London for a handful of reasons — the European commercial market, seeing into the future via time zone advantages, soccer.
However, what we weren’t expecting when we opened our UK office was to stumble upon the likes of Louis Browne.
Our meet-cute originated with a direct to brand Adidas project for which Louis was tapped to shoot stills, his photography belt already quite notched. Louis came up shooting musicians, having been a rockstar himself, performing for boisterous crowds and featured on BBC radio with his band at the age of 15. After stepping away from his nascent musical career, he seamlessly traded in his axe for a camera and in true Louis Browne fashion, excelled immediately. Before long, Ellie Goulding, Billie Eilish, and other A-listers were in his inbox, requesting sessions.
When Louis tagged along to do stills for our Adidas spot, the intention was for his captures to be supplemental. To no one’s surprise, Adidas ended up leaning on Louis’ images as the hero graphics for the entire breadth of the campaign…our ears perked ups t this. We didn’t make moves until we were startled by Louis’ splash once again: He had entered the Music Video scene.
Once the young artist booked booked multiple music videos and established a foothold in the moving media world, we joined forces and lassoed him into the commercial realm.
Since our ring-studded handshake (that man can dress) Louis has worked with T-Mobile, Gucci, Vans; while still occasionally linking with an artist for a good old fashioned photo shoot. The most recent being Olivia Rodrigo, celebrated white house correspondent and pop star.
While we’re a company comprised of young players, Louis has bridged us with refreshing, Gen Z sensibilities and it’s been a blast. His vitality towards youth culture, and infectious, unconditional optimism laughs in the face of antiquated, bloated advertising. Louis has proven to be a clear industry stand-out, leading his generation into the next era of ads backed by kindness, ethics, and intention. Here at STADIUM, are are buckling up as we officially welcome Louis to our roster, eager to find out What’s Next in the Louis Browne story. From the looks of it, probably the moon.
