We are a small film and digital production company based in LA founded by Kyle Gass of Tenacious D, Bruce Winterton (formerly) of The Barbarian Group, and well...me, Ha!
Kyle is, of course, a rockstar and guitarist of the highest caliber. In addition to being one of two members (the other being Jack Black) of the self-proclaimed Greatest Band on Earth, Tenacious D, he is also a music producer, an actor, and a generally well-connected dude on the LA scene.
My father Bruce comes from the advertising business with a long line of successes including the Miller High Life Man, the Keep Walking campaign for Johnnie Walker, and HELLOMOTO. Most recently, he was partner and owner of The Barbarian Group, the preeminent digital creative company.
WinterGass has already produced an eclectic mix of projects: many viral campaigns, short films, commercials, animations, music videos, and a webseries. It has been a lot of fun.
