Mirada has signed Academy Award-winning director Peter Ramsey to its roster for commercial representation. Ramsey is a highly acclaimed director and the first black filmmaker to be nominated and win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film for 2019’s critically renowned “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” He delivers an exceptional breadth of knowledge, craft, creativity, and innovation across genres, further extending Mirada’s expertise across high-end filmmaking, commercials, animation, and immersive and digital experiences.
Ramsey is a multifaceted creative whose career spans iconic pop culture productions, immersive world-building, social impact storytelling, and collaborations with prominent and influential figures across cinematic and commercial work. Lucasfilm’s Jon Favreau and Kathleen Kennedy recently enlisted Ramsey to direct episodes of “Ahsoka” – the next upcoming series in the “Star Wars” universe for Disney+. In 2021, Ramsey joined forces with Netflix to direct the debut episode of the animated mini-series “We the People,” executive produced by Barack and Michelle Obama, and the full first season of “Lost Ollie,” starring Mary J. Blige and Gina Rodriguez. A lifelong resident of Los Angeles, Ramsey rose to fame from humble origins as a storyboard artist after studying painting at UCLA.
