LOS ANGELES— Director Brent Jones has joined Los Angeles-based Yard Dog, led
by executive producers Joe Piccirillo and Beth Pearson, for work in
commercials, branded content and web media. Bringing a diverse reel and more
than ten years of directing experience to his new home. Jones is perhaps best
known for high-energy automotive spots, but his work also extends to
performance-driven storytelling and humor, with credits including WeatherTech,
DiGiorno Pizza, FedEx, Monster, and Subway.

Jones has already completed his first project with
Yard Dog, a spot for a major car brand that featured a half-dozen former
Heisman Trophy winners and an elaborate production mimicking a reality TV
competition. “Brent’s range of work and ability to direct actors, celebrities, real
people, and manage complex productions makes him a great addition to Yard Dog,”
said Beth Pearson. “Both Joe and I have worked with Brent before
and know what he can do. We’re excited to be part of the next phase in his

In terms of action and production value, Jones’ work rivals
Hollywood action films although often with a comic twist. His spot Tech Team for WeatherTech, which
premiered during last year’s Super Bowl broadcast, imagines a crack commando
team who intercept a car on a mountain road to prevent a coffee cup from
spilling on the upholstery.
A native of Kansas City, where he started as a lighting
technician, Jones moved to Los Angeles and came up through the ranks. He worked
behind the scenes under such directors as Steven Spielberg, Michael Bay,
Cameron Crowe and Sam Raimi.
Joining Yard Dog is like a reunion for Jones; he
previously worked with Piccirillo at Original Film. “Joe is a very personable
producer,” he says. “He knows the ins and outs of the business and is a great
problem solver. He also has an encyclopedic knowledge of advertising that comes
in very handy.”
Yard Dog is located at 6509 De Longpre Ave, Los Angeles, CA
