Jeremy Pinckert is an award-winning American director of commercials and branded content. He likes to engage audiences through eye-catching visuals and acting performances, and has the ability to successfully achieve a variety of narratives: from stylish interior lifestyle situations to gorgeous outdoor scenics; from dialogue-based comedy to product-based creative; from brand spokesperson to tabletop mixed with lifestyle.  He is known for his collaborative creativity and for encouraging friendly, relaxed shooting sets, while still maintaining efficiency in his results-focused work.

Jeremy graduated with a major in film production and a minor in cultural anthropology from Ball State University’s acclaimed communications program.  He cut his teeth directing Discovery Channel, History Channel, and ESPN Original Entertainment documentary and entertainment programming, winning an EMMY Award in the process. With the strategic plan to utilize those storytelling chops in shorter form mediums in the advertising world, he founded Explore, LLC in 2003. Since then, Pinckert has directed hundreds of commercials and branded content pieces, garnering over 65 industry awards in the process.  Under his guidance, Explore has grown to add a roster of Directors who produce commercials, digital and branded content throughout North America, and a full-service division with post production, fx and finishing capabilities.

Jeremy, his wife and three school-age children call the Midwest home, where he enjoys traveling, playing music, hiking, golfing, and getting outdoors with his family, exercise and yoga, and of course, screening movies.
