“We are thrilled to have Jessy joining our team at Endemol Shine Boomdog to develop his next big hits with us,” says Rincon. “We are working closely with him now on our upcoming series with Nicky Jam, ‘El Ganador,’ and we have a tremendous amount of respect and appreciation for his talent as both a director and producer.”
"I am very excited about the partnership between my company Cinema Giants and Endemol Shine Boomdog,” says Terrero. “Over the last couple of years, we have witnessed the global impact of Latin urban music in the mainstream and I look forward to developing content that resonates with that culture. As a music video director, my main objective has always been focused on raising the bar visually for Latinos and I believe Endemol Shine Boomdog is the perfect partner to help take my vision across multiple platforms".
Terrero is an established director, with over 20 years of experience in music videos, commercials and feature films. His most recent film, “Freelancers,” (LionsGate) stars Robert De Niro, Forest Whittaker and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.
Prior to his feature films, Terrero became one of the most sought-after music video directors in the U.S. and Latin markets. His inventive music videos have been nominated on numerous occasions throughout the years at both the MTV Video Music Awards and the Billboard Music Awards. Terrero’s work takes inspiration from his native Latin heritage and combines that perspective with what he learned from working in the general market. Terrero’s style has been described as a hybrid of American visuals blended with Latin sensibility.
Terrero's music videos have garnered over 2 billion views in 2016 alone. His most recent directorial work includes the music video for “El Amante,” Nicky Jam’s first single off his new album El Fenix and “Vente Pa’Ca” for Ricky Martin and Maluma, as well as other top Latin and world renown artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Farruko and Prince Royce.
In 2012, Terrero joined a group of partners to launch the Google-financed YouTube channel, 123UnoDosTres, catering to young Latinos. Through his production company, Terrero Digital, he acts as the creative director of the channel, in addition to supervising its production.
As a commercial director, Terrero has worked closely with brands like Pepsi, helping to create commercials and content that speaks to their audiences. Whether it’s a Kohl’s commercial with Jennifer Lopez or a Reebok spot for NBA superstar John Wall, Terrero’s creative style always shines through and compliments his brand partners.
