Ten-time Emmy®-winning filmmaker Greg Kohs has joined bicoastal Chelsea Pictures for U.S. and international representation. Greg, a native of the Motor City and graduate of Notre Dame, honed his signature “captured not contrived” storytelling aesthetic and craft at NFL Films shortly out of college. It was during his tenure there that he received an astounding ten Emmy Awards®.
Kohs’ uniquely soulful and genuine style of visual storytelling has been brought to bear in spots and content for clients ranging from Google and Apple to Nike, Mastercard, Disney, EA Sports and Titleist. Greg has collaborated and forged strong relationships with such agencies as 72andSunny, Wieden+Kennedy, Mullen, Arnold, the Martin Agency, Y&R and others.
As a filmmaker, Greg has an interest in projects with soul, and a particular passion for those of his subjects who doggedly pursue their own passions. He crafts these soulful stories with an eye towards visually striking and honest imagery.
“I’ve been an fan of Greg’s work for a number of years, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with him and witness his thoughtfully hand-crafted approach to storytelling firsthand,” notes Chelsea EP and Partner Allison Amon.
And her fellow EP and Partner Lisa Mehling added, “I love Greg’s work for its beautiful composition as well as its grounded soulfulness. The breadth of his filmmaking experience and vast knowledge of advertising makes him ideally suited to tackle varied forms of content and styles. He’s the perfect addition to our roster.”
Greg’s feature films include award-winning Song Sung Blue, which the late Roger Ebert hailed as “Superb,” and his imminent documentary The Great Alone, which chronicles the incredible comeback journey of four-time Iditarod champion and inspirational cancer survivor Lance Mackey.
The director joins Chelsea for international representation from Backyard, excepting the Canadian market, where he is represented by Radke.
