Stink have signed award-winning director Andzej Gavriss for commercial and music video representation across Europe, the US, and Asia.
The Latvian filmmaker began experimenting with stop motion and puppetry to liven up the monotony of his surroundings as a child, and since shooting his first short film at thirteen he's never looked back. He's gone on to become known throughout the industry for his energetic directing style and penchant for polished music promos, which exude emotion from every frame.
"For me the creative comes first. I want to tell interesting stories, step out of my comfort zone and do the best work," Gavriss commented on his move to Stink. "It was important for me to find a company who is as ambitious as I am. Stink's work consistently stands out, their team has good instincts and they are willing to fight for creativity. They are risk takers whose eyes are sparkling with energy. I'm looking forward to working together."

His latest film 'We Will Become Better' challenges anti-LGBT sentiment in Russia, telling a passionate story of love against the odds through dance. Its defiance and bravery caught Stink's attention, assuring them that Gavriss is a perfect fit for their roster.
As Blake Powell, Stink's Global Head of Film, explained: "I think 'We Will Become Better' is a stand out piece of work this year. It blew me away. It's beautifully constructed and directed. Andzej, like that piece, has an incredible energy and passion that is infectious. The team can't wait to get going."
