Wilsons Powerful New On Meaning Films Now On Upworthy
Bullitt has welcomed filmmaker Peyton Wilson to its growing and diverse roster of directing talent. The signing follows the recent release of two of Wilson’s short documentaries on Upworthy: “The Acid Survivor” and “The Inmate.” Presented by Bullitt Entertainment, the films explore how life-changing events define meaning for starkly different subjects. In advertising as in film, Wilson is known for eliciting emotion through a balance of wonder and relatable subjects, most recently the “First-Ever” campaign for Ford EcoSport, which captures pinnacle moments for people who have dreams of doing something extraordinary. She is a member of Free The Bid.
Renowned for documentary and docu-style explorations for all screens, her work includes a piece for Norton that brings attention to the effects of online bullying, and the “Reinvent My Story” campaign for HP (BBDO). Other noted commercial projects include “Louisa” as part of Dove’s “Amazing Moments” series (Ogilvy & Mather UK), a campaign for the U.S. Navy (Campbell-Ewald) featuring a reservist and chaplain whose poignant narratives unfold in authentically documented stories; and an integrated campaign for Nokia about TED Fellows (Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam).
A California native, Peyton has always punctuated a love for the great outdoors with a focus on writing and filmmaking. Her documentary films include the acclaimed fighter pilot feature Speed and Angels. Honored with festival awards, the film also screened at Smithsonian Air and Space Museum before being broadcast on Discovery Channel. Her documentary short The Bronzer enjoyed a successful festival run and rave reviews.
