Darren O’Kelly and Neil Davies Launch Untold Studios in London


Former The Mill execs launch independent creative studio combining advertising, entertainment and tech

Darren O’Kelly and Neil Davies Launch Untold Studios in London

A new independent creative studio and community, Untold Studios, has launched this week in the creative hub of east London.

Untold Studios is headed by industry leaders Darren O’Kelly and Neil Davies, previously COO and Executive Creative Director respectively at The Mill. Alongside their co-founders they bring together an experienced and award-winning team, enabling entertainment and advertising commissioners to create and deliver brilliant content.

Opening with 20 award-winning artists, creators, producers and technologists, Untold Studios is on course to double its team by the end of this year. Based in a breath-taking 6,000ft² space in the White Collar Factory building on Silicon Roundabout in London, the company is a creative community for world-class visual artists, writers, designers, filmmakers, animators and sound designers.

CEO, Darren O’Kelly, said: “Untold Studios is built for the future. The worlds of advertising, entertainment and technology are intersecting like never before and we’re building a creative studio that enables commissioners to create world-class content.”

CCO, Neil Davies, said: “Creativity and people are at the heart of Untold Studios. We’re genuinely excited to create a collaborative culture where we support each other and share a common optimism for the future.”

Untold Studios hits the ground running with a number of projects already in development, including producing an original feature length documentary with the Sundance Award-winning team behind ‘The Summit’ and collaborating on high profile advertising agency campaigns and episodic TV series.

Untold Studios is thought to be the world’s first entirely cloud based studio underpinned by a next-generation technology digital infrastructure. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has built an Untold Studios laboratory at AWS and are providing hardware, processing and rendering capabilities in a highly secure and encrypted MPAA approved environment. This revolutionary approach is both flexible and scalable.

Dorfman Media Holdings, chaired by Sir Lloyd Dorfman CBE, founder of the Travelex Group, serial entrepreneur and philanthropist, has taken a significant minority interest in the company. Charles Dorfman, CEO of Dorfman Media Holdings, joins the board. In addition Pat Joseph, co-founder of The Mill, joins the board as non-executive director, bringing with him a wealth of industry experience.
