Nashville-based TackleBox Films has added directors to its roster who can offer specialized services for custom media content. These new additions include veteran director/producer Sherman Halsey, animation team BIRDmachineBIRD, Anna Mastro, Britt Delara, web content experts The Edde Brothers, and live concert director Jay Cooper.
“Growing our roster of directors expands TackleBox’s ability to produce a multitude of projects,” explains TackleBox President Shaun Silva. “We’ve constructed a team of directors who offer a specific craft and are focused within a certain field of media that specifically suites our clients needs.”
Halsey brings a wealth of industry and artist relations to the company, and his portfolio includes his extensive 18 years of work with Tim McGraw including videos for “Southern Voice” and “Live Like You Were Dying.” The son of manager and concert promoter, Jim Halsey, Sherman learned the music business ropes at an early age and eventually rose through the ranks to a leadership role at The Jim Halsey Company, including managing a young Dwight Yoakam and directing his video for “Honky Tonk Man.”
Comprised of Traci Goudie and Patrick Hubik, animation team BIRDmachineBIRD have experience across a multitude of media from film, video, photography and graphic design. Recent work includes Flogging Molly’s “Don’t Shut ‘Em Down.”
Los Angeles-based Anna Mastro has worked with Nicole Scherzinger, the Pussycat Dolls, Leona Lewis, Train, and more. She recently released a short film musical called Bench Seat. Britt Delara, based in Toronto, is a newcomer whose work includes TNile’s “Reverie” and Sound and Fury’s “Teenage Rampage.” The Edde Brothers are a new media/web content team who will develop web series, documentary/tv specials, concert shoots, EPKs and more. Recent projects include the GAC special Introducing: Hunter Hayes. Sought-after live concert director Jay Cooper has worked with talents such as LMFAO, Kenny Chesney, Ozzy Osbourne, Eric Clapton and more.
