Cap Gun Collective Adds Director Jordan Fein to the Roster

Commercial Production Company Cap Gun Collective has added award-winning Director Jordan Fein to its roster for US Representation. 

Born and raised in Texas, Fein attended Film School at NYU and took a job with Oscilloscope Laboratories in film distribution upon graduation, where he worked alongside independent film icons and the leadership that subsequently started A24. From there, he worked in a Senior Creative Development role at 1stAveMachine learning the ins and outs of commercial production.  During this time, Fein began developing his first feature The Blessing, and started working full time on the film when he and his co-director received funding from the International Documentary Association. The Blessing had its festival premieres in 2018 and Fein toured with the film for over two years, including guest lecturing slots at the Smithsonian and Harvard. The Blessing had its broadcast premiere on PBS and was awarded numerous best film awards.

Fein continued working as a commercial director with Hone, Alkemy-X, and Wild Gift directing projects for brands including Range Rover, Verizon, Squarespace, Adobe, and PointCard. Volvo Highway Robbery, which he directed for Grey with creatives João Coutinho and Marco Pupo, won three Cannes Lions and a Clio Award.  Fein finds the biggest throughline in his work comes from the power of listening, and sees Cap Gun as the right place to continue telling stories.  “Cap Gun has a killer reputation and I share their approach of valuing and fostering our creative relationships,” says Fein. “At the end of the day, our work is about people, so I was excited to spend time with Matt and his team at Cap Gun and have confidence that any project we tackle together will benefit from a shared ethos of honesty and excitement for each project’s potential.”

“We are really excited to work with Jordan,” says Cap Gun Managing Director and EP Matt Abramson.  “He is a passionate filmmaker who is fully committed to his craft and looks for opportunities to elevate his projects with fresh ideas and innovation.”  Equally excited, Fein sees guaranteed change for the industry as an opportunity.  “My experiences have led me to understand that the only certainty is your integrity and a willingness to try.  The old ways are dead.  I choose to ride the wave and adapt to the possibilities of the unknown.”
