Farrell came to R/GA from Havas, where he served as Global Chief Content officer. During his four-year tenure, Farrell built and lead an award-winning cross-office studio capability, leading projects like Bob Dylan’s Studio A Revisited for Sony Legacy, which went on to win awards at festivals including Cannes Lions, Clios, and One Show. Prior to joining Havas, Farrell ran the R/GA Digital Studio, serving as head of production and expanding the capability internationally, beginning with a studio in London. Before R/GA, Vin was Senior Director of Content and Integrated Marketing Production at Spiketv.com. Prior to that, Vin worked for Digitas as an Agency Producer, where he established the video production practice between the New York, Chicago, and Boston offices.
Farrell stays close to his professional roots as an independent film producer. Recent credits include 2012’s “Me @ the Zoo” and 2014’s “Banksy Does New York”, both distributed on HBO. Additionally, in 2015, he co-founded FlyNYON, an aerial experience brand that leverages social media and digital communication platforms to disrupt the traditional helicopter tourism business.
