Venice Beach-based production company Rodeo Show has signed director, writer, and producer Jose Terán to its roster for his first U.S. commercial representation. A native of Mexico City, Terán brings an international perspective and innate curiosity to his directing and storytelling style. Driven by a lifelong passion for filmmaking, Terán established his roots in advertising early on, working at agencies such as TBWA and Energy BBDO Chicago. As a director, he has helmed projects for top clients including Apple, AT&T, Adidas, Nestlé, AT&T and Pepsico, among others. He has written numerous scripts for film and TV, producing over 40 commercials as well as two short films: “Renacimiento” and “72 Horas”.
Over the years, Terán has deliberately curated his creative vision and directing style through a global lens, taking advantage of the remote nature of the industry to expose himself to a dynamic cross-section of places, cultures and people.

Terán graduated from the Virginia Commonwealth University’s Brandcenter with a Masters in Mass Communication and an emphasis in Creative Writing. Following graduation, he continued to hone his craft, attending several Creative Writing courses in London’s Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
