Argentinian directing collective PANTERA is a versatile team of diverse creatives who bring a fresh energy and a bold vision to commercials, music videos and short films. Comprised of filmmaking trio Pato Martinez, Brian Kazez and Francisco Canton, PANTERA has directed projects for global brands including Nike, Reebok, Mercedes-Benz, Adidas, MTV, LG, Rolling Stone, Converse, and Uber.
Their latest projects include the cinematic music videos for Tshegue’s “Muanapoto” and the celebration of Bob Marley’s classic “Easy Skanking.”
Martinez, Kazez and Canton began working together five years ago, and eventually, their collaboration evolved into the Buenos Aires creative studio Pantera&Co, where alongside their own projects, they work with other directors, photographers and producers.
In 2017, they were awarded a Cannes Lions Bronze Lion for Film Craft: Direction and a Silver Young Director Award for their branded short film “Woza,” a modern, mystic tale of an African surfer, for surf company Mami Wata.
