Growing up in New Orleans, Charles was obsessed with all things cinema. Mom used to let him play hooky on Fridays for the new releases, ditching Jesuit for Goodfellas. Soon, he made his way to LA, working as a camera assistant while attending Cal Arts.
Growing up in LA, Angela is shock-proof. She danced Major Domo professionally and samba-ed on stage with Duran Duran. Later, she studied acting and design at Cal Arts. That’s where these two met. They’ve been working together since, carving out their reel while navigating “the business”.
Charles became an award-winning editor while Angela got savvy on the agency front as a broadcast/post-producer, then as head of production for design & animation studios. Hungry for action, they both traded in their desk chairs for director’s chairs.
After directing more music videos than he’d like to admit, “Chuck” made the move to commercials – eventually teaming up with “Gigi” on the directing front. Together, they tell stories – often times from concept through finish – for brands big and small, they pour their souls into each project.
Chuck & Gigi bring an authentic, energetic style that doesn’t feel like advertising. Residing in California with two kids and two cats, they live their work.
Dreamers, adventurers, problem-solvers – Chuck & Gigi are still on their first date, in love with the world and each other. They’re also fun at parties.
