Rick Knief – bio (new)

Rick Knief


     Rick is the Founding Partner, Executive Producer, as well as a director at Table of Content. He began his career as an art director, working at advertising agencies in both New York and Boston. But it was while working as a creative director at Ogilvy & Mather, New York, where he was able to translate his passion for art direction, photography, and story-telling into the art of directing when he was given the opportunity to direct his first commercial for American Express.
While some of Rick’s work as a creative director can be seen in the archives of the One Show, Communication Arts, and D&AD, it is his work as a director where he really shines. Using his unique, collaborative style he is able to take advantage of his marketing and people skills and elicit smart, genuine and human performances from his talent, capture their emotions, and connect them to the brands he works on in a clean, graphic, and cinematic style.
Rick lives with his girlfriend, Gabrielle, an artist and writer, and their dog, Paolo. He has two grown sons with whom his world revolves around. When Rick is not working on a current commercial production or running the business, he is writing. He currently has several screenplays and tv pilots in development.
