Morgan Spurlock’s New York-based production company and Keith Calder’s Los Angeles-based production and financing entity have teamed up with commercial production veteran Shannon Lords to create the commercial production company.

The aim is for Warpaint to serve as a home for “innovative directors who are looking to expand their craft into more diverse and lucrative opportunities.” 

Warpaint completed its first project in January with Darren Aronofsky, who directed the upcoming campaign for Revlon featuring Emma Stone and Halle Barry. 

The company’s initial stable of directors includes Spurlock, Liz Garbus, Michael Tucker, Maggie Choo and Damien Toogood.
