Director Chad Ostrom Joins Lucky 21


Scrupulous preproduction is the hallmark of Chad’s process. “You can’t just show up and think you’ll capture magical, serendipitous moments. The planning stages are about placing yourself on the other side of the process.”

Lucky 21 has welcomed director Chad Ostrom to the roster. Ostrom adds over a decade’s worth of experience to the company, through the fashion and lifestyle markets. He has helmed work for agencies such as JWT, Laird + Partners, Roberts and Langer DDB, Saatchi & Saatchi and for brands including Dior, Kanon Vodka, Perry Ellis and Rembrandt.

“Chad knows what it takes to make everyone succeed and deliver on the creative promise,” says Lucky 21 Executive Producer John Gilliland. “He has a modern eye, and we are excited to cultivate his aesthetic and viewpoint for our clients.”

Ostrom earned a BA in Film, but ultimately found his path working with writer/director Kevin Willmott and director Douglas Keeve. From there, he went on to direct and produce branded content and commercial projects, seeking to infuse each with sense of unique, authentic beauty and the intensity of place.
