Blink has welcomed London based director John Ogunmuyiwa and Jungle to its UK base roster. Both join for commercials and music videos.
John began directing whilst working as a creative at Havas making short films and below the line advertising films. Finally 'Mandem', his short film, garnered the attention he deserved - wining the LGBTQ+ BFI London film festival.
Paul Weston, blink md said: “when I saw john’s film 'Mandem' I was obsessed. he’s a really exciting young talent and destined for great things. john’s first piece of work with blink for adidas is a really promising sign of what’s to come and I can’t wait for what’s around the corner”.
Brazilian born, European based duo Jungle won the coveted best new director award at the British arrows 2020 and have since added to their impressive reel with spots for Nike and Uber along with a stunning short film for Nowness. Jungle’s work is filled with remarkable imagery and art direction often applying visual effects in a unique and naturalistic way.
Jungle said: “We are really proud to be among the team of some of our inspirations and such talented family!”
Paul Weston blink ep/md: "Jungle are a really distinctive exciting new talent and are more than ready for the world of advertising here in the UK, their reel really speaks for itself. we are beyond excited to get started”.
