Our Commercial Directors have real experience.

From successful feature films, to some of the biggest hit television series and cult classics, our short roster of Directors consists only of consummate professionals and proven leaders… plus they’re just truly nice people. We’re very proud of this A-list team on our team.


Takashi Doscher
Director

Based in Los Angeles, Takashi Doscher is the youngest director to ever sell a film to ESPN, his work has been featured as a Vimeo Staff Pick, on the front pages of USAToday.com and MTV Hive, as well as on flights for Virgin Atlantic Air. He has written and directed a variety of projects including short films, commercials and music videos.

Takashi offers a visual storytelling style that often depicts the conflict between science and the human condition – a reflection of his educational background in Physics and English.  Sometimes he even shows the harmony between the two.  Either way he is clearly a perfect fit at BARK BARK and we are pleased to share his work with you.

Megan Gamez
Director

Megan Gamez got her start fabricating movie props as a kid on shows such as Men In Black, Armageddon, and Wild Wild West. Later, she moved out to Atlanta where she worked as a crew member on movies like Goosebumps, Fate of the Furious, and Pirates of the Caribbean 5. By coming up in the art world first, this has given her a unique directing style by paying attention to the smallest detail and by adding the most production value to every frame.

Her short film “Tigan and Moggs,” was accepted into the 2015 Female Eye film festival in Toronto, where it received a lot of attention. She has also finished working with Grammy-nominated artist Mario on two projects earlier this year.

Ousman Sahko
Director/DP
Ousman was born in the midst of a war torn Sierra Leone. At a young age he witnessed unspeakable diamond-fueled atrocities until the age of ten, when he was narrowly able to escape tragedy. Years later these experiences shaped his vision and created a sharp focus on cultural and socio-economic stories. Speaking six languages, Ousman has gone on to work in over 50 countries. He captures film and images that are empathetic, humanistic and heart filled. Through all of his work, he strives to connect audiences to the subjects on screen, but also to one another.
