Mike Maguire



Mike began his career at Kirshenbaum & Bond in NYC, where he simultaneously tried this hand in both the advertising and entertainment industries, writing taglines for several feature films including Boogie Nights, Happiness and The Avengers.

This 3-year period culminated just before leaving K&B when he (along with former creative partner Tom Kuntz) were featured in VARIETY Magazine's "Gotham 50" of 1998, which recognized the top fifty New Yorkers to watch in the entertainment industry in the coming year.

From there, Maguire went on to MTV to become writer/director where he produced hundreds of commercials for shows - most notably, the MTV Video Awards featuring Ben Stiller, The Wu-Tang Clan, Madonna, Marilyn Manson & Dave Grohl of The Foo Fighters, as well as the MTV Movie Awards featuring Samuel Jackson - which gained considerable national and international attention.

Based on the success of his work at MTV, Maguire decided to pursue directing full-time, joining Propaganda Films in 1999 and MJZ in 2001. To date, he has directed a number of well-known commercials for brands such as BUDWEISER, FOX SPORTS, NIKE and VOLKSWAGON, to name just a few.

He has also worked on music video projects, in particular; the acclaimed "Frontier Psychiatrist" video for The Avalanches, which was one of 3 finalists for BEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR at the CAD's (the U.K.'s premier video award show) and "DANGER! HIGH VOLTAGE!" video for Detroit's Electric Six, which features vocals from Jack White of the White Stripes. The song entered the UK charts at #2 and Tom Jones has been quoted as saying that it is his favorite video.

Maguire has received numerous awards for his work, including One Show, Cannes and British D&AD. He has also been featured in Archive Magazine, RES Magazine and Rolling Stone.
