We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our newest team member, Richard Robinson — or Ricky as he’s known around the office — to Madison + Vine as our first Executive Producer. His main responsibilities will be growing our roster of directors and connecting them with opportunities to partner with top creative agencies.
Before Madison + Vine, Ricky was with L.A. production company D1STR1CT, where he served as Executive Producer and Managing Partner. During his time there, Ricky worked with an impressive collection of brands including Nike, P&G, Samsung, Fiat and Lexus.
Originally born and raised in Italy, Ricky set out for L.A. in 2006 and attended the Los Angeles Film School, where he began working on indie feature films as an assistant director. He later worked on more than 30 feature films, including the Oscar-winning movie, The Artist, for which he was part of the assistant directors’ support team under director Michel Hazanavicius. The Artist earned Hazanavicius and his team a DGA Award in 2012.
Eventually, Ricky decided to shift his focus to commercial production and began working with various production companies such as Epoch Films, Anonymous Content, Biscuit Filmworks and Caviar.
Welcome to Madison + Vine, Ricky!
