Ira Rosensweig is an award-winning director known for his unique comic sensibility and deft touch with celebrity talent. Vacation Quarterback, a commercial starring Peyton Manning that he directed and edited for Universal Parks & Resorts, recently premiered during Superbowl LII. Rosensweig won Clios for Neighbors 3: Zombies Rising, a mashup of the Neighbors and Walking Dead franchises starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, and again for One Night Only, featuring Alec Baldwin playing George Washington as Donald Trump. Recent campaigns for Mike’s Harder Lemonade and Kia were honored by AdWeek as Ad Of The Day and Creativity as Editor's Picks.
Rosensweig started his career at MTV Networks as a true multihyphenate, writing, producing, directing, and editing full campaigns himself. The Spike Action Study, which he produced, directed, and edited for Spike TV, won Promax and Broadcast Design Awards for best short film or music video. Rosensweig was also honored with the Promax Rocket Award, which recognizes the best new producer in promotions worldwide.
He has since made a name for himself directing stars such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Seth Rogen, Kevin Hart, Alec Baldwin, Jack Black, Zac Efron, Peyton Manning, Blake Shelton, Tiffany Haddish, and many more. Rosensweig has directed commercials for brands including Toyota, Geico, Absolut Vodka, Gillette, Honda, NBA, Nerf, Ford, Taco Bell, and Nissan, and promos for networks including ABC, NBC, FOX, AMC, ESPN, TNT, Bravo, History Channel, TruTV, Paramount Network, and Nickelodeon.
Rosensweig is also very active in the film and TV space and recently directed three episodes of the second season of Go90's Mr. Student Body President, winner of multiple Streamy Awards. He produced, directed, and edited Mystery Now, starring John Lithgow, which serves as a prequel series to NBC's Trial & Error. Think Tank, a show Rosensweig co-created and directed, as well as executive produced with Chris Moore (Manchester By The Sea, Project Greenlight), became A&E’s first digital series. He has also been commissioned to write screenplays for the Farrelly Brothers and MGM.
Rosensweig is currently developing a number of film projects including Head Case, about a man with extreme OCD and a sex addict who end up on the run from the authorities and the mob after accidentally coming into possession of a high profile severed head, and Guidance, about a down-on-his-luck high school guidance counselor who uses any means necessary to give a slacker student the life he missed out on himself.
