OB Management has announced its latest signing Skunk, who have officially opened their first London office with Kate Taylor as MD.
OB will be representing ten directors from the US roster, who between them boast over a billion views on YouTube and have made films for hundreds of the biggest brands ranging from BMW to Burger King to Geico to Nike. Furthermore, they have previously worked with talents such as Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, Macklemore, Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell and Ben Stiller on commercials, features, short films and music videos. Subsequently, Skunk have won some of the highest accolades in the industry awards, including several Cannes Lions Awards and two Academy Award nominations.
OB Founder Otis Bell says: "We've been on the hunt for a particular stable of experienced storytellers for a while. It's certainly not easy to find this calibre of refreshing talent with such exceptional film craft, so we jumped at the chance when Matt and Kate called us. Skunk's roster embodies an eclectic range of narrative directors perfectly suited to the progressive UK market. Not only is it going to be fun working with Kate and Matt, it will be a real pleasure to show the work!"
OB will be representing an exciting and eclectic roster of talented film-makers; Andrew Dominik, Brent Harris, Brian Lee Hughes, Glendyn Ivin, Jonathan Augustavo, Paul Minor, Raf Wathion, Rhys Thomas and Saman Kesh. Furthermore, award-winning director Jim Hosking has recently signed to Skunk's worldwide roster and is Skunk's first London based director.
As a team, OB Management, founder Matt Factor and newly recruited London MD Kate Taylor are looking forward to bringing British and European talent into the Skunk fold for stella exposure on both sides of the pond.
