Production Company Anonymous Content has announced that directors Kate and Laura Mulleavy have joined its roster for commercial representation. The signing comes on the heels of the visionary sisters making their feature film debut with the hypnotic drama Woodshock, starring Kirsten Dunst; and just months after presenting their spring 2018 couture collection for their own fashion label, Rodarte, during Paris Haute Couture Week.
“Kate and Laura are exceptionally talented visual artists who’ve already mastered the world of fashion and blown us all away with their directing debut,” says Eric Stern, Anonymous Content’s Managing Director and Partner. “We’re excited to introduce their unique aesthetic eye to our clients.”
“From starting our fashion line to making our first feature, we’ve always carefully selected creative partners who will embrace our voice, while offering us the support and guidance to succeed,” say Kate and Laura Mulleavy. "That’s why we chose to work with Anonymous Content. We’re already fans of their directors and their work, and we’re excited to become collaborators as well.”
Celebrated for their ingenuity, hard work and dedicated artistic expression, Kate and Laura wrote and directed Woodshock, now available on VOD after being theatrically released by A24 in September. Set in Northern California’s Humboldt County, among the ancient and majestic redwood forests where the sisters grew up, Woodshock follows Theresa (Dunst who also executive produced), a haunted young woman spiralling in the wake of profound loss, as she is torn between her fractured emotional state and the reality-altering effects of a potent cannabinoid drug.
A hypnotic exploration of isolation, paranoia, and grief that exists in a dream-world all its own, Woodshock was born out of Kate and Laura’s desire to explore their lifelong connection to the redwoods. Immersive, spellbinding, and sublime, the film transcends genre to become a singularly thrilling cinematic experience and is a testament to the siblings shared vision.
Though their background is in fashion, the two are no strangers to film, having designed the ballet costumes for Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” for which they were nominated for a Broadcast Film Critics Award. Naturally, they also designed the costumes for the artistically divergent Woodshock.
In 2005, Kate and Laura founded the Rodarte, a conceptual and innovative luxury brand known for its artistic mixture of high couture, modern femininity and California influences. The designers have collaborated on special projects with Frank Gehry and Gustavo Dudamel for the LA Philharmonic and Benjamin Millepied on costumes for the New York City Ballet. In 2011, Rodarte first solo show opened at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and today, their works are featured in the permanent collections of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessAnonymous Content, Wed, 29 Nov 2017 19:51:39 GMT
