O Positive Adds Director Rodrigo Garcia-Saiz

Rodrigo Garcia-SaizNew York-based production company O Positive announced today the addition of director Rodrigo Garcia-Saiz to their roster for commercial representation in North America and internationally.

“I am an enormous fan of O Positive,” Garcia-Saiz said. “Talking with Jim [Jenkins] and David [Shane], I felt as if I knew them. They really love their work and enjoy their families; we share a similar vibe. Plus, they do some of the best work out there. I appreciate that O Positive is a small company where I can really focus and do great work.”

Garcia-Saiz has a steady track record of award-winning work, including a Cannes Gold Lion win for AMIS “Office” (Ogilvy & Mather Mexico), and the Bronze Lion-winning horror parody “Executed” for Gandhi Bookstores and anti-bullying spot “Playground.” After attending film school at University of Mexico’s prestigious El CUEC, Garcia-Saiz flexed his cinematic muscle at Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s production company as a commercial AD, before forming his own Mexico City production company, Central Films.“David and I both have always seen a sure hand in his work, and a consistency that we really admire, especially in terms of his performances. He’s just an enormous talent,” said O Positive director and partner Jim Jenkins.


“He can do everything,” added fellow O Positive director and partner David Shane. “He is such a good visual storyteller, but he also gets wonderful, nuanced performances. His casting is  always spot on. His sense of rhythm—his economy of story telling is so good. And he’s as nice as he is talented. I truly hate him.”
