Call for Commercial Directors

Archipelago Productions is in the process of expanding our company and creating a subsidiary focused on commercials and branded content. To prepare for this next chapter, we’re looking for talented and driven commercial directors of all styles and genres to be signed onto our new director roster. 

Why join us?

We recognize commercials for the art form they are. We believe the best way to achieve creative excellence is to foster an environment where everyone is encouraged to fuel their individuality and channel their unique experiences and perspectives into each project. (And have fun while doing it!) It’s important to us that we maintain a culture of mindful and empathetic collaboration, creativity, authenticity, and a desire to push against old school boundaries. We are committed to ensuring each director feels free (and encouraged) to express themselves in their work and to pursue passion projects whenever possible. 

How to apply: 

If you’re interested in joining our team of directors, please complete this form with the following information: 

-a reel showcasing your work

-a brief paragraph outlining who you are  

-any other information you deem relevant

While a reel showcasing previous commercial work is an asset, we encourage emerging and narrative/entertainment directors looking to break into the commercial industry to apply as well.

Archipelago is committed to taking immediate action to acknowledge and dismantle systemic racism and sexism in the Canadian commercial, film, and television industry by committing to radical change. We greatly encourage Black, Indigenous, and People Of Colour of all genders, sexual identities, and disabilities to apply.

Please reach out to ivy@archipelagoproductions.ca if you have any questions or require accommodations. While we appreciate all applications, please note that only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
