Grant Sputore

Park Pictures signed director Grant Sputore for representation in the U.S. and the U.K.

An award-winner for commercial work, Sputore’s earned a Cannes Lions finalist berth with “Break the Barrier” for St. John Ambulance.

Sputore has also made shorts and television series. He directed I Am Mother, which premiered this year at the Sundance Film Festival and debuted on Netflix last month, and is slated to direct the Margot Robbie-produced science-fiction film Augmented for Warner Bros.

“After seeing I Am Mother, we knew we wanted to work with Grant, in shortform and longform work,” said Park Pictures Executive Producer Jackie Kelman Bisbee in a prepared statement. “Grant has everything that Park Pictures looks for in a new director. He’s gifted at capturing performance, with impeccable art direction, and is able to tell a captivating story. Because Grant can write and develop films, along with his exceptional execution, he will play an important role at Park as the landscape of our business grows.”
