Peter Sluszka helms this fresh new campaign for MaraNatha, a new kind of nut butter. In these hilarious spots, conceived by Terri & Sandy, we do not focus on the product, but the heartbroken anti-hero... the loser in this battle of the hearts. This unconventional approach to the story is what first attracted Sluszka to the project, and is what makes the story so surprising and successful. Set to an awesome fake 80s ballad, comically overwrought but so authentic sounding that people will be convinced they remember it, these character driven films will pluck at all your emotions.



Peter Sluszka, winner of various awards and accolades, may be the most calm and patient director in the business. With strong roots in stop motion, it’s easy to understand why. It also helps that he's gleaned a thing or two from his time working alongside the legendary Michel Gondry.

Peter is a skilled mixed-media director, but above all, he is a clever designer and a fabrication whiz. It's not uncommon to find him fully immersed in a project and getting his hands dirty with set design, fabrication, or even animation.

Having directed original content animation, commercial productions, music videos, television series, and feature films, Peter's portfolio is brimming with live action, CG, and stop-motion feats. He’s manipulated everything from traditional foam latex puppets to meat, origami, snow, yarn and (literally) tons of clay.
