September 16, 2014— Director Nick Losq, whose work combines humor and natural
performances with cutting-edge visual effects, has joined Bully Pictures for advertising
Losq has already completed several assignments through
Bully. They include a multi-spot package for Radio Shack and GSD&M, Austin,
related to this year’s World Cup competition, and a campaign for Tribe Hummus
through New York agency DeVito Verdi.

“Nick has his own brand of quirky comedy,” says Bully
Pictures executive producer Jason Forest. “He has a deep background in visual
effects, incisive performance sensibilities, a wicked sense of humor, and a
really nice way of collaborating with agency and client. He is already doing
great work with talented ad agencies, and I love that he sees himself near the
beginning of a long creative career where he will continue to challenge

Losq’s Radio Shack campaign centers on a young American, in
Brazil for the World Cup, who uses a GoPro camera, a smart phone and other
technology to communicate with locals, meet girls and have oddball adventures.
The campaign, which also features stylized graphics reminiscent of Indiana Jones, became an online
“My favorite work couples great live action performances
with visual effects that are sometimes stylized, sometimes seamless. I love
creating stuff that’s slightly irreverent or larger-than-life,” Losq says.
The director’s work for Tribe is a current viral hit. The
spots parody nature documentaries with one revealing the “mating habits” of a
couple in a hotel room.
Losq said that his experience on Radio Shack and Tribe
prompted his formal relationship with Bully Pictures. “Working with Jason was
great; we collaborated in every aspect of the process,” he recalls. “I love
working with someone who is so devoted to what he does.”
Losq began his career as an animator and visual effects
supervisor with credits in features, commercials, video games and music videos.
He spent three years at Backyard Entertainment (now Oktobor Animation) before
joining Motion Theory where he was a designer and visual effects supervisor,
specializing in stylized forms of animation and effects. He later became visual
effects supervisor at MPC, Los Angeles.
In 2011, Losq joined Rabbit Content and expanded his
repertoire to include live action direction. His output included a Monte
Python-inspired campaign for Natural Light beer with 72 and Sunny, Los Angeles,
and a commercial for computer processor maker Snapdragon set in a video game
environment for Ogilvy, Los Angeles. It features a battle between a female
warrior and an ogre—who has to pause the fight to use his inhaler. Other
credits included campaigns for Five Hour Energy for MC Saatchi, Los Angeles, a
Southern Comfort project for Wieden & Kennedy, New York, and a spot for Conrad
Hotels and Resorts for Y&R, New York.
“My passions have always been centered on characters,” Losq
observes. “In animation, you start out with an imaginary, inanimate character
and you need to find its personality and give it traits that audiences can
relate to. Directing actors is very similar in that you are looking for those
traits or quirks that turn scripted characters into real people.”
In 2012, Losq was short-listed for Shots’ Young Director of
the Year honor for his Conrad Hotels work. That same project was an LIA
finalist for visual effects and won a Bronze ADDY Award.
