Academy announces the appointment of Maurizio Von Trapp to head its music division.
The team at Academy stated: “We are incredibly excited to have someone with Maurizio’s music production pedigree on board to help us grow and develop the department.”
As a music video producer, Maurizio has worked with some of the most recognisable artists in the world, including Stormzy, Jorja Smith, U2, Elton John, Rita Ora and DJ Shadow.
After a stint in fashion and television, he joined Pulse Films in 2017 to be a part of the award winning music video division, and was a key figure in the signing and development of new talent, nurturing them from emerging filmmakers to in-demand talent for commercials, film and TV. He was also instrumental in Pulse’s winning of Production Company of the Year at the UK Music Video Awards in 2017.
Maurizio comments: “I am excited and honoured to be leading the Music department at such a respected and recognisable company as Academy Films. It’s a privilege to represent such a heavy-hitting roster and to be working with such an incredible team. While I look to expand the Music department’s offering, I am also thrilled to look ahead to the future and excited about signing new talent in the UK and beyond. Diversity of voices will be a key element as we move forward and relaunch the department.”Academy Films, 6 months ago
