    Dan Lindsay grew up in the comfort of the American Midwest. TJ Martin was raised by two punk-rock-playing parents in Seattle. After completing film school, the duo helmed the Oscar-winning documentary “Undefeated.” Their follow-up documentary, “LA92,” which garnered an Emmy in 2012, uses rarely-seen archival footage to examine the tumultuous days of the 1992 Los Angeles uprising in the days following the Rodney King verdict. 

    “The Truth is Worth It,” Martin + Lindsay’s groundbreaking six-part campaign for The New York Times with Droga5 NY, emphasized the importance of thorough and investigative reporting. The campaign earned two Grands Prix at the 2019 Cannes Lions, two Black Pencils at the D&AD, the Black Cube at the 2019 Art Directors Club, Best of Film at The One Show, and Best in Show and Best of Advertising at the AICP. The duo was also honored in AdWeek’s 2019 Creative 100 as one of 11 Commercial Directors Who Are Elevating the Craft of Storytelling. 

    The duo have helmed commercials for The New York Times, Comcast, Facebook, Gatorade, MET-Rx, and Prudential with agencies including, Droga5, 72andSunny, Wieden + Kennedy, Leo Burnett, and TBWA/Chiat/Day.

    TJ lives in Echo Park; Dan is still unsure how he ended up in The Valley.
