HELO Signs Emmy-Nominated Director Nik Kleverov

From the release:

Global production and experiential studio HELO, known for its technology-driven storytelling work, has announced the addition of Nik Kleverov to its growing directorial roster.

Nik Kleverov is an Emmy-recognized storyteller known for his multidisciplinary approach to documentary, title sequence, film and commercial work, inspired by his love of technology and design. As an immigrant and son of a nonconformist artist that was persecuted by the Soviet government, Nik has a layered and unique story to tell. His life story and varied experience informs his diverse approach to creative work, from explorative use of AI within animation, to motion design led title sequence work, and live action documentary.

Nik’s creative highlights include development of the first animated short 100% designed using AI-generated visuals powered by OpenAI’s DALL-E, Critterz. He’s also known for his Emmy nominated main title sequence for Netflix’s Narcos, title sequences for Bloodline, Last Chance U, and The Boys in Blue, and commercial work for IMAX’s x Fast & Furious and UFC.

Prior to joining HELO, he was represented by Digital Kitchen, Compadre, and others, in addition to developing work for his own hybrid agency and production offering, Native Foreign.

Founder and President of HELO, Justin Moore-Lewy comments, “Nik Kleverov’s addition to our roster marks an exciting chapter for HELO as we continue to grow our roster of out-of-the-box-thinking creators, and expand our storytelling capabilities. We are thrilled to have his unique storytelling abilities and creative vision as part of our team, and we look forward to creating outstanding content together, both on and off the screen.”

HELO is known for its impact-led work that applies creative resources and technology to raise awareness and drive change around social and ecological issues.
