JUSTIN LEIBOW

Director

A native of Los Angeles, Justin Leibow intuited a creative life the very day he picked up his first pencil as a wee lad. Seamlessly engaged in direction, design and animation, Justin crafts unique visual campaigns.

He’s created award-winning advertising work for myriad brands, some being Visa, Coca-Cola, Toyota, Gap, Sprint, Samsung, Target, Honda and MTV.

After many years of critical success including multiple top AICP awards, Cannes Gold Lions and Emmy nominations, Justin now directs content with Wild Plum while independently creatively directing.

His sharp-witted independent films and poignant photography enable him freeform expression on the daily.

THE SPOTS

PEPCO

Pool

Justin created a perfectly-timed live-action/motion graphic piece for Pepco Energy to highlight their summer conservation efforts.  The result is a cool, relaxing, and refreshing spot that soaks up the summer.

VIRGIN MOBILE

Inner Circle

Justin led a small band of friends to create a last-minute campaign as Virgin Mobile was wrapping up their launch materials for their new Inner Circle.  He took on the challenge, creating this fun blend of live-action, practical effects, and motion graphics to highlight the Inner Circle plan.

Justin is constantly creating, and this dance video is an example. Inspired by his daughter’s dance school, Justin created a beautiful exercise in live-action and animation.

This one is purely live-action and highlights Justin’s cinematic visuals.  Shot for Panasonic’s Lumix cameras, it beautifully follows the day in the life of a street photographer.

Another celebration of photographers, this piece blends multiple storylines together and highlights the social aspects of taking and sharing pictures.

PAYPAL

The People’s Voice

Paypal went to Justin as they were rebranding to create some upbeat and light-hearted spots, showing off the many features of Paypal that some might not be familiar with.  The result was an excellent campaign that showcases Justin’s unique animation abilities, again, blending the animation seamlessly with live-action.

ACE HOTEL

You Pretty Town

Justin’s own still photography is on display here in a spectacular piece that blends live-action motion pictures, stills, and graphics.

GAP

Kristen Bell

Another fun example of Justin’s animation work mixed with live-action, this campaign for Gap also featured great celebrity talents like Kristen Bell, Olivia Munn, Norman Lear, and Bill Maher, to name a few.

EARLY IS ON TIME
