Do you remember when you were asked as a kid, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?
Well, four of us wanted to be film makers and one of us wanted to be an astronaut.
I will almost certainly never make it into space, but my consolation prize is having an amazingly
fulfilling career, a successful business and two wonderfully talented partners here on Earth.
At Dos Rios, we are in the unique position of knowing who we are and what we do best, while
also continually challenging ourselves and probing the possibilities of discovery. Complacency is our enemy.
And speaking of what we do best, while we excel at executing fleshed out creative, we are most passionate about having a hand in the creative process itself. Some of our proudest moments have been when our creative concepts have triumphed over stiff competition and won jobs for our clients.
We consistently finish our projects with a firm sense of satisfaction, and so do our clients. In fact, ‘client’ is almost the wrong word, for we are at our best when a creative partnership is forged. In just about every single case, we are better together then we are apart.
Thanks for your time.
Paul has been producing commercial and business communication content for clients such as Microsoft, AT&T, T-Mobile, Amazon.com, Xbox, MTV, HTC and Pemco, (to name just a few) for about as long as he can remember. Having cut his teeth at prominent production companies such as Digital Kitchen, Superfad, Oh, Hello, World Famous, and Uber Content, he is used to setting the bar high and will not settle for mediocrity. Paul likes to set the gear shift for the high gear of his soul, and runs like an antelope, out of control.
Mark has been creating documentary, commercial, corporate and branded entertainment for over 20 years for clients such as Starbucks, Microsoft, AT&T, Amazon.com and Brooks Running shoes. For some reason…his clients have always come back for more. It probably has something to do with his uniquely positive process, which includes working very closely with our clients while always keeping things light and fun. Having produced and directed projects in over 25 countries around the globe, he is as comfortable shooting in a small town in Brazil as he is at Pike Place Market here in Seattle. Mark moved to Seattle in 1995 to get the West Coast out of his system, nearly twenty years later his three daughters are now natives, in fact his oldest prefers the rain.
Before founding Dos Rios, Issara spent a decade as a top creative contributor on projects for such great brands like HBO, MTV, Microsoft, Motorola, Target, Nordstrom and ESPN, working in a cornucopia of delicious formats, platforms, and media, including commercial directing, UX, video game, and music video projects. He is a man who loves the outdoors, and bowling, and as a surfer has explored the beaches of southern California from Redondo to Calabassos.
Brian Waldrop Dos Rios-Atlanta
Brian began his career working as a staff agency producer in Atlanta. After having the opportunity to work on broadcast projects for clients like AT&T, Nationwide Insurance, BMW and Publix Supermarkets the west coast was calling his name and off he went to Los Angeles. He was fortunate to work as a staff producer with the production company Charlie Company. With network and cable clients like MTV, ABC Family and HBO he learned the fine art of motion graphics and animation producing. After his stint in LA he made the move with his family to the Pacific Northwest specifically Seattle. Upon moving to the great Northwest he turned freelance to work with tech giants like Microsoft and Xbox as well as lottery and healthcare clients. And now we’ve come full circle with Brian back in Atlanta enjoying year round golf and the world’s greatest BBQ.
Yaque brings a cutting edge cinema look and feel to his projects. Yaque's additional production experience designing and building sets for such noteworthy clients as Pink Floyd, U2, Rolling Stones, Ozzy Ozborne, Mötley Crüe and Fox studios Australia, means that he's great to have on set and always enjoys getting his hands dirty. As a Producer, Director, and Cinematographer, he has worked on projects for Coke, Comedy Central and Warner Brothers, to name a few. A guy told Yaque one time, "Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner." Well, Yaque's felt the heat of Dos Rios, and it keeps him right here, keeping it real.
