DIRECTORS / VISUAL STORYTELLERS / DYNAMIC DUO / GAMERS / MILLENNIALS
justin (the Plummer) and martin (the Strauss) are directing partners that use classic cinematic techniques to create stylized imagery for films and branded content. They met studying film production at San Francisco State University, where they discovered their mutual interest in narrative visual storytelling and ultimately joined forces to become Plummer/Strauss.
The duo’s filmmaking career was officially launched when they were shortlisted for the Young Director Award and appeared in SHOOT Magazine’s New Director Showcase. Since then they have directed spots for Comcast, O2, Ralph Lauren, Ben & Jerry's, Jim Beam, Cisco, The United Nations, and Dell. In each, they blend captivating imagery and cinematic aesthetics to deliver playful, intense, seductive, intricate, and unexpected narratives. That’s the playground of Plummer/Strauss.
justin resides in the East Bay and martin in Los Angeles, where they enjoy playing Mario Kart 64 and hanging out with their friends.
