Tatia Pilieva

Georgian-born Tatia Pilieva studied at the American Film Institute. Her short film 'First Kiss' was the most-viewed piece of branded content in 2014, gaining over 150 million views as well as a number of awards.

There is a stripped-bare honesty about her work, whether it's for a music video or for a TVC; and she has been described as making the “coolest, strangest and loveliest ads.”

"You're The Best Thing About Me"
It's such a shame that Tatia Pilieva's short film is a promo for U2, because it's so searingly poignant that it deserves better than this dialled-in track by Bono and co. To complement the song's theme about love, Pilieva created a mini-documentary about four couples - who are together in real life - facing a long-distance separation of uncertain length.
