SPIELBERGS — the directorial collaboration of Teddy Blanks & Alex Karpovsky — fuse absurd, surreal visuals with dynamic character-driven storytelling, as demonstrated by their work on Amazon’s The New Yorker Presents, their Emmy-nominated short-form series for FXX, Oh Jerome, No, and branded work for clients such as Dollar Shave Club, RAM, and North Carolina Education Lottery.

Blanks, co-founder of the Brooklyn-based designer studio CHIPS, has designed title sequences for over 150 feature films and series, recently winning an Emmy for his contribution to the opening title Apple TV+’s Severance. He composed the film score for Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture and Karpovsky’s Red Flag.

Karpovsky has directed 5 feature films as well as TV episodes of Girls (on which he played the role of Ray Ploshansky) and Love. As an actor, he has appeared in more than 50 films, including the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis and Hail, Caesar! as well as Amazon’s Homecoming, starring Julia Roberts and Bobby Cannavale.
