Jeff Venable

Award-winning American Commercial & Music Video director Jeff Venable steers into the unexpected approach. Create the first ever Cheetos music video with Gold Medal Olympians & NFL superstars? Bring together 28 NCAA mascots for a football game? Road trip with a rockstar across the country in a 66 VW van? 

Jeff makes the stuff that people say “I can’t believe you did that.” whether in humor or heartstrings. 

He’s created ads for brands like Cheetos, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, MoonPie,  CollegeHumor/TRUTH, Mitsubuishi, Krispy Kreme, Hershey’s, Cracker Barrel, Lyft; directed the legendary intro for Monday Night Football in 2019 and videos for some of the top names in music like Demi Lovato, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Jake Owen & Martina McBride (the list goes on…). 

CBS Sports used “Country Nation” (Brad Paisley) as their year-long intro for college football and on the music side; and been nominated in every country music video awards show multiple times and including winning the 2019 ACM Video of the Year. He’s a Grammy member since 2015.

He played rugby for just as long as he did improv… that explains a lot. He lives in East Nashville with his wife Ally, dog Jack and step-cat Dexter.
