A trio of vets from the advertising, production and immersive theater worlds have opened Captain, billed as a "modern entertainment studio." Creative Director Dan Morales, production veteran Douglas Howell and Immersive Theater Director Michael Counts have formed a company that under a single roof combines creative and strategy, tech, content, talent management, production, postproduction and experiential expertise.
While seemingly a tall order for a single shop, the partners have demonstrated such a skillset through their various backgrounds. Mr. Morales has nearly two decades of experience in advertising and previously worked at creative shops including Cliff Freeman & Partners, Mother, Leo Burnett, JWT and Y&R. He's also an MTV vet and previously opened his own agency Especial Worldwide. Mr. Howell founded multi-platform production company Rabbit Content, which has created work for brands including Powerade, Samsung, Aldi and Southern Comfort.
