Alex Ogus began as an illustrator in grade school. Students wanted to buy his work and not wanting to part with the originals, he sold them xeroxes. Captivated by film, at age 9 he made animation shorts at the Manitou Arts Camps under the guidance of accomplished NYC artists.
Ogus went on to art school, and one of his short films was selected at the Providence Rhode Island International Film Festival and featured a score by Alex Lifeson of the rock band RUSH.
Ogus has gone on to direct commercial campaigns all over the world for companies such as Ferrari, Nissan and Visa and has won numerous awards for his work. His campaign for the Fight Network won four Cannes Gold Lions, multiple Bessies including Best of Show and a Clio.
His spot for Media Markt was a Cannes finalist and rated one of the top campaigns in Belgium. His recent ‘Levitation’ spot for Asics was featured in Creativity, shots and Shoot, while his Science World ‘Airport’ spot has received Golds at the Applied Arts Awards, ADCC and the Marketing Awards.
Alex lives in Los Angeles and is represented for commercials by Company Films.
