DOMO welcomes Nico Bongio to its roster of multidisciplinary directors. Nico is known for his dynamic visual language and emotionally potent films, which he will bring to new audiences alongside the creative collaboration company.

Born and raised in Mexico, Nico’s storied career began in photography. As a director, he combines that refined appetite for lighting and framing with his drive to tell contemporary stories that evoke emotion. His use of inventive imagery brings an undeniable gravitas to his films, with his deft hand utilising colour and shadow to draw the audience closer. Nico plays with narrative structures, character development, rhythm, and tone to evoke a sense of heightened reality and elicit a swell of deep feelings upon watching his films.

Nico applies his innate ability to give a film its own distinct voice to commercial campaigns, helping brands craft a unique creative footprint. He’s expressed these directorial sensibilities in campaigns for popular international brands like Nissan, Delta, KFC, YouTube, Modelo, Samsung, Home Depot, and Nike, among many others. He’s also directed several short films, including “Spirit,” “Awake,” “Re-Birth,” “Love F.M.,” and the documentary “Fountain of Youth,” which focuses on humanity’s efforts to live an extended, healthy life.

“I believe in the power of art to bridge the cultural divide between the individual and the collective conscious, and the responsibility that influence comes with,” remarked Nico. He continues speaking of his new artistic home base, “DOMO is similarly forward-minded and radically attuned. They believe in the power of Co-Creation, the art of the craft, and the lasting impact a powerful film can have on the world. I could not be in better hands, and I’m thrilled to join the ranks of DOMO’s incredible roster."

Rani Melendez, managing partner and executive producer of DOMO, added, “Nico comes with every tool in his filmic toolbox at the ready. He’s ravenous for challenge and excited by opportunity, a quality unique to those with a deep love of directing and a commitment to artistic growth. His fearlessly crafted visual language and deep-seated passion for the human condition make for a breed of evocative storytelling all his own.”
