Caviar have announced the signing of British filmmaker Rohan Blair-Mangat for commercial and music video representation in the UK (including Amsterdam), US, France & Spain.
Since graduating from Central Saint Martins with a degree in Fine Art, his varied projects have led him to work with talents such as JAY-Z, Lionel Messi, Daisy Ridley, Alexander Wang and Lewis Hamilton.
Last year Rohan directed a short film to accompany ‘Bam’, from JAY-Z’s album ‘4:44’, which was nominated at both Camerimage and the 2017 UKMVA’s. He has made music videos for artists such as Bryson Tiller, DVSN, PAULi and Sub Focus, along with commercial projects for clients including Adidas, Apple Music, Beats By Dre, BMW, Dazed, McDonalds, Nike and Vice. Jasper Thomlinson, Managing Partner at Caviar had this to say on the new addition: “We are very excited to have Rohan join the Caviar family. There’s a raw authenticity to his work that manages to punch through in a cinematic and rhythmic way. And this vision spans the gamut from his music videos, ad campaigns, to the film and TV projects he’s developing. It makes Rohan the perfect addition to the Caviar roster and makes us eager to get started making great work together.”
The young filmmaker has garnered much attention and numerous awards during his short career: His short film that was created in collaboration with Wretch 32 ‘When I See You, I See Me’, was screened at the Tate Britain and selected by Lynne Ramsay for the series ‘Electric Shorts’. His cinematic spot for Cocaine Unwrapped ‘Run For Your Life’ earnt him both a nomination for Best New Director at the prestigious BTAA Craft Awards and to get shortlisted for the CFP-E/Shots Young Director Award. His interactive work for Geox won four Cannes Lions, a One Show Gold Pencil and FWA Site of the Day.
Rohan had this to say on signing to Caviar; “I am really exciting to be joining Caviar. I’ve been following their work for a while and it’s great to be reunited with Georgie MacEchern who was my first ever commercial rep. I’m looking forward to the projects that come in 2018 and beyond!”
Rohan is currently developing a feature project and working on a documentary, which draws inspiration from Lyle Owerko’s book ‘The Boombox Project: The Machines, The Music, and The Urban Underground’. Caviar are super excited to announce the signing of British filmmaker Rohan Blair-Mangat for worldwide ( excluding Germany) commercial & music video representation.
