The Bear.
Bio  |  Show Reel   |            Share


The Bear is an Emmy award-winning directing collective based in Austin, TX. Founded by Berndt Mader and Ben Steinbauer, The Bear is known for its quick wit and love of specialty appetizers. This group of directors is equally at home in the wild or on a studio lot. With 10 years under their belt making crowd-pleasing feature films like Winnebago Man and Five Time Champion, short films including Vimeo Staff Picks Calls To Okies and Slow To Show (also a New York Times Op-Doc), campaigns for brands such as Nike, Whole Foods, Shiner, Alfa Romeo, Yeti and Crate and Barrel, you may say to yourself, “These guys are having all the fun.” And you may be right.
