Production company Strange Loop Studios has announced the addition of Midwest-bred, commercial director, Mark Pallman. Known for infusing light, subtly absurd comedy into everyday routines and scenarios, Pallman has created campaigns for clients such as McDonald’s, US Bank, Esurance, Hefty and IL Tourism.

“We have been really impressed with Mark’s previous breadth of work and creative process,” says Strange Loop EP, Luca Valente. “His meticulous work ethic, ingenuity and client-friendly demeanor on our recent broadcast campaign for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas (airing this winter) further solidified a long-term collaboration.”

Pallman is a veteran of the Chicago production community, where he spent the better part of the last decade helming projects for One at Optimus. He has since continued working solo with top brands, infusing spunk, heart and compelling pictures into their branded content.

“I’m excited to be working with a company like Strange Loop who is above all else focused on delivering the highest quality content possible,” says Pallman. “Their client-focused approach to production, and the fact that they let me order whatever I want at dinner, really made this partnership possible.”

Pallman joins a roster of six directors cumulatively stationed across LA, Minneapolis and Chicago. Strange Loop is a full service production company represented by SG+Partners.
