Martin and Alex both join for UK representation

Johnny Foreigner Adds Directors Martin Swift and Twinset

The original director’s agent has scooped top automotive and commercial filmmaker Martin Swift who has worked with iconic brands including Volvo, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Puma and Armani. He has also proudly worked on thought-provoking films for the third sector including drug addiction, AIDS and homelessness. Martin has a strong cinematic style and always strives for a beautiful aesthetic. His work takes him all over the world and you might be forgiven for thinking he hails from Scandinavia but in fact was born and raised in Wigan, home of Northern Soul and Pies.

“We are so thrilled to have Martin on board. His reel is a thing of beauty, and we are excited to be seeking out scripts which require the quality of aesthetic and polished cinematic style he delivers. He’s also a down to earth kind of guy who gets on with everyone.” Johnny Foreigner’s Olivia Hirschberg commented.

"Delighted and immensely proud to have Johnny Foreigner as my UK Agent. Thrilled and excited to be working with Olivia and her team, can't wait to see where this journey takes us. " Martin Swift
