Director Gregory Maya, long known for high-end fashion/beauty work, his visual sensibilities, and an affinity for capturing emotional human portraits and performances by actors and real people, has returned to his original production house roost, The Artists Company.
Over the years, Maya–who had most recently been with Bully Pictures–has amassed directorial credits spanning such brands as Pantene, Target, Dove and Walmart. His latest endeavors have been for TJMaxx, March of Dimes and Bar Escentuals.
“The return of Greg Maya means so much to me personally as he is one of the homegrown talents that began with our storied company,” said Sally Antonacchio, owner/executive producer of The Artists Company. “His versatility with regards to casting, performance and switching between genres makes him the exact kind of director I want on my roster. He can go from magnificent hair drops to poignant vignettes at the drop of a hat. It just feels right having him back home.”
Maya related, “Having a team starting with Sally Antonacchio that is down to earth and believes in representing each director with unqualified conviction is all I can ask of a production company. That The Artists Company has always been a class act no matter the size or platform of the job is important to me. Like old friends, and being able to pick up where we left off is an invaluable relationship in a business where affiliations are all too often fleeting and of the moment.”
In addition to rejoining The Artists Company roster, Maya is also moving his base of operations back to the East Coast where his career began. He is repped by Carolyn’s Office on the East Coast, Mary Saxon on the West Coast, Laure Scott for Los Angeles, Perry Tongate in Texas and the Southwest, Donna D’Aguanno in the Midwest, and Alana Rothlein for the Hispanic market.
