Who We Are

Double-Wide is a team of experienced and passionate storytellers. We promote entertainment in all forms, we produce commercials, we tell brand stories. Everything we do is informed by the simple principle that audiences – now inundated by messaging – aren’t content to simply watch and absorb those messages; they need a reason to feel engaged. This can only come from consistently fresh creative and powerful branding, so that’s how we roll.
 
At Double-Wide, we can take clients from soup to nuts on any project: creative services and consulting, productions big and small, multicultural marketing, strategic and media planning, editorial, art direction, and visual effects supervision.

gab Gab Taraboulsy
Director

To say Gab is all about food understates the artistry, craft and love he brings to his work. He puts the same passion into filmmaking that his master chefs put into their culinary creations. His work has earned a Best Documentary Series Webby Award, and has even been recognized by the James Beard Foundation. A Montreal native transplanted to California, Gab is crazy about baseball and now bleeds Dodger Blue.
rob Rob Zombie
Director

Rob Zombie grew up wanting to be “Alice Cooper, Steven Spielberg, Bela Lugosi, and Stan Lee,” so he’s doing okay in the wish fulfillment department. With a massive and intensely loyal fan base, Rob’s artistry and vision are instantly recognizable in both music and movies. He’s sold more than 17,000,000 albums, has seven Grammy nominations, and has written and directed some of the most memorable feature films of our time. When he’s not touring with his band, Zombie’s really a homebody, hanging out with his wife, Sheri, and their pug, Godzilla.
shawn Shawn Sundby
Director

Shawn started at the bottom, literally, grinding rust off the bottoms of grip trucks. That Shawn sees this as a positive place to start a career tells you a lot about him. As a DP with a strong visual sensibility, Shawn has shot for adidas, Nike, Levi’s, Proctor & Gamble, and more. Being a really nice, no nonsense guy – and a dad – helps him relate as a director to everyone from media savvy pro athletes to young, unseasoned kids. Even when he’s not working, Shawn is surrounded by gorgeous visuals, living in Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge.
Craig Craig Teper
Director

Craig is the director of the theatrical feature documentary “Vidal Sassoon, The Movie,” selected for SXSW and the Tribeca Film Festival.
