Dave Merhar, King of Comedy + Boss of the Big Stage

 

“Every idea deserves every chance to live on the biggest stage.” Nobody knows that more than Dave Merhar. He said it. He’s done it. He’s doing it.

Dave has 13 SuperBowl commercials that he’s either directed or written so he knows the “big stage”.  Now that the “big stage” is changing, every idea has the same chance to be viewed by billions. With comedy as the backbone, Dave has created and filmed award-winning work for some of the biggest clients in the world, including AB/InBev, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts and scores of others.

Dave knows comedy, he knows visuals, he knows writing and he knows how clients work. With 2 television shows and features in development in Hollywood, the stage only gets bigger. But Dave’s goal remains simple; to be a true partner with you as the world of media consumption changes. That’s how great things get done on any stage.

Juan Delcan, Director

You know what’s cool? … a guy who can do this

and also this

and this

and this!

A native of Quebec, Juan moved to the US in 1995.

The first project he ever did was the Video Game “The Abbey Of Crime” that enjoys cult status to this day.

Juan’s work as an artist came to the attention of Bono who commissioned him to animate backdrops for U2’s Vertigo Tour, which can be seen in U2 3D, the bands’ 3D theatrical release.

His documentary, AfriCOBRA, is an engaging historical tribute to the Chicago artists collective who create images to uplift and affirm the African-American community back during the civil right movement from the 1960’s, it aired in TVLand during Black History Month.

Juan’s work has been honored in the Cannes Advertising festival, The London International Advertising and Design Awards, AIGA, The BDA Awards, The Telly Awards and the Museum of Modern Art and continues to be featured at numerous film festivals.

Next up, “Ivory Tower.” The film was nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy for outstanding business and economic reportings, and is simply essential viewing for anyone interested in the crisis in higher education here in the U.S.

 

And now…Andrew’s kicking off Tribeca’s 15th year with “The First Monday in May” exploring the intersection of fine art, high fashion, and celebrity at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
