International Producer Finley Wise graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UC: Berkeley, where he double-majored in Spanish & Legal Studies, with a minor in Film and a year spent abroad at the Universitat de Barcelona. After a stint crunching numbers in San Francisco's financial sector, Finley began producing full-time, enchanted by the collaborative spirit of filmmaking.

    Finley’s earliest productions were short-form projects and music videos for UMG, Capitol Records, and EMI. His music video work quickly expanded into the commercial and narrative realms, and over the past decade, Finley has spearheaded some of the biggest videos on the Internet. Finley helmed shoots in locations as far-flung as England, Brazil, and Singapore. From YouTube’s epic Rewind series to campaigns for Oculus, Lenovo, Legendary, Microsoft, and Google, Finley has lead his casts and crews through rainstorms and heatwaves, Russian winters and Japanese summers, always putting a premium on creative, well-supported talent, safe sets, happy crews, and grateful partners.

    In addition to speaking Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese, Finley enjoys conversing in all things fútbol (¡Visca al Barça!), beach runs with his speedy whippet, Lola, good books, family, and 100% natural peanut butter. Finley currently works as a Film Producer in-house with Facebook.
