Production company ModOp Films has signed veteran independent short film director Wendy McColm to its directorial roster.
McColm is known for her YouTube channel featuring her own short works, and her acting roles on Hey Girl, Community, and How I Met Your Mother, as well as performing with Upright Citizens Brigade. She recently directed a branded short for H&M Rendezvous and Other Stories starring French blogger Jeanne Damas, which screened at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
“I’ve basically spent the last eight years making things I like, exploring topics and genres, and giving myself creative challenges,” explains McColm. “After the H&M project I knew I wanted to do more brand work. I love the fact ModOp Films is all about being open to creative exploration and how best to apply the work to the intended audience. We connected immediately.”
“We are excited to work with Wendy on advertising projects, from commercials to web,” said EP Rossi Cannon. ”Wendy McColm is an amazing talent and knows how to cultivate a following for her work in a way that is unpretentious, authentic and incredibly infectious.”
