As an advertising creative Rodrigo Saavedra travelled the world working for agencies like Mother London, WK Amsterdam, Santo Buenos Aires and Africa São Paulo – before deciding to focus on directing in 2013.

A natural storyteller, Rodrigo has directed films for global brands such as Corona, Budweiser, Nissan, Chivas Regal, Mizuno and Volkswagen, which picked up a Silver at 2015’s Cannes Lions. His latest spot for Scrabble scored a bronze this year too, after it quickly went viral, with Time magazine describing it as “the perfect love story for word nerds”.
