Director Dan French has won Shiny Awards' Best New Signings for Papaya Films. Dan, best known for his fresh edgy casting, and use of music has worked with Sports brands Nike, Champion and Adidas to name a few.
Shiny has awarded him the accolade on the back of his music video for Yola Recoba, 'Wicked Game'.
“It's great to be recognised by Shiny, and awesome feedback for such a challenging project that was created under such tough circumstances." commented Dan. "We were commissioned to make this music video when there was a full lockdown and so we weren't able to shoot, and instead had to work backwards using the NASA footage to create our narrative. It was really interesting working that way, finding the right footage that worked for us. I'm excited to see what projects we can create going forward with Papaya and it's been really great having that support network behind me.”
