Aggressive is a New York-based Grammy Award-winning music video directing team of Alex Topaller and Daniel Shapiro.

Aggressive has been described by Movie Creation Mag as “having a fascination with the wonderful, in the likes of the surrealist Rafal Olbinski” and “tenacious about pushing themselves and some overclocked hardware in order to create striking videos” by Video Static.[1]

To date, Aggressive has directed music videos for Michael Jackson, Stone Temple Pilots, Juanes, Megadeth, Bloc Party, The Click Five, Kerli, Susan Justice, Black Label Society, Hoobastank, Killswitch Engage, The Script, Alexis Jordan and Lil' Rob.

Aggressive has also directed commercials for brands such as Ford, Toyota, Bloomberg, Ralph Lauren, Anna Sui,[2] Marc Ecko, Penfolds (RED), D&B, MTV, Subway, AT&T, Kyocera, Cablevision, Topps, Caché and more.

Both coming up from VFX backgrounds, Topaller and Shapiro take a hands-on approach in all aspects of the process, from concept development, to shoot direction, all the way through post-production.[3]
