Award-winning director Raúl B. Fernández has joined the Chicago roster of Cap Gun Collective.
Besides wielding a significant body of work for international brands like Chevrolet, Amazon, Coca-Cola and Durex, he also boasts a Cannes Lion and a D&AD Pencil.
The Argentinian-born lensmaster lived throughout the western hemisphere for much of his youth before settling down at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts long enough to earn a Masters in film.
He enhanced his traditional education with classes at the UCB School of Improv Comedy, where he sharpened a knack for humor that adds remarkable style to his commercial work.
Office Lunch FOMO for Stouffer’s is just one of many examples that showcase his impeccable timing and grace.
Fernández is also an avid improv performer who frequently collaborates with the musical comedy trio The Cooties. In July, he joined the troupe in a performance at Montreal’s famed “Just For Laughs” comedy festival.
In a hilarious press release titled, “Raúl B Fernández and Cap Gun change status to ‘In A Relationship,’” the company quoted its newly-signed director as saying, “I feel like the belle of the ball. Cap Gun loves me for me. I trust them and can’t wait to get busy… if you know what I mean.”
Cap Gun Collective was formed in 2009 by Whitehouse Post in collaboration with producer / director team, Matt Abramson and Alex Fendrich. According to its website, it curates “a roster of directors who each possess that intangible spark.” The company is represented in the Midwest/West Coast by Get Reehl/Get Davis, and on the East Coast by Bespoke 360.
