PRETTYBIRD has signed writing and directing duo Geremy & Georgie for global representation for branded entertainment and music videos. The longtime filmmaking team—known largely for their stylish and surreal music videos, film and commercial work—will be rostered as separate directors.
“Kerstin [Emhoff] and her team are the equal parts professional and badass production partners I have always dreamed of having,” comments Georgie Greville. “Everyone says PRETTYBIRD stands for genre-defying creativity, and these guys actually do. Being on a roster with heroes like Melina Matsoukas, Daniels, Fleur [Fortuné], and Tim & Eric is a f**king dream come true. I feel like I'm coming home.”
Geremy Jasper hails from Hillside, New Jersey, while Greville boasts a varied background from Australia, Singapore, London, New York and Boston. Upon meeting at MTV, the duo bonded over their mutual love for innovative, non-traditional creative concepts. Together they founded LEGS, the award winning multimedia studio behind a variety of esteemed works including the VMA-nominated videos for Florence + The Machine’s 'Dog Days Are Over' and Selena Gomez’s 'Love You Like a Love Song'; Target’s Gold Cannes Lion winner 'Kaleidoscopic Fashion Spectacular'; British designer Gareth Pugh’s MADE Fashion Week showcase for Lexus Design Disrupted; and high energy, choreographed dance films for brands such as Rag & Bone and Evian, among many others. The powerhouse couple is now individually pursuing their own large-scale projects.
“I first met Georgie and Geremy in 2009 right after we started the company,” remarks PRETTYBIRD Co-Founder / President, Kerstin Emhoff. “I was so impressed by their ability to look outside traditional platforms and to expand on their creative ideas. It is really unbelievable what they have achieved together and as individuals, blazing trails in both traditional and non-traditional mediums. We have waited eight years to finally get to work with them and are so excited about our future together!"
Jasper’s first feature film, Patti Cake$, was a breakout hit at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival landing him on Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch list. The film recently played at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival Directors’ Fortnight and will be released theatrically by Fox Searchlight this summer. A lifelong music freak, Jasper also wrote all the movie’s original songs, which will be released as a soundtrack album on Republic Records.
Greville Co-Founded Milk Makeup, where she leads the brand's visual identity with an unprecedented multi-media presence. Under her supervision as Creative Director, the cosmetic brand embraces individuality and authenticity, in the process redefining conventional beauty standards.
“The transcendent creative culture Paul and Kerstin have created at PRETTYBIRD is something I feel a deep connection to,” Greville concurs. “They have championed diverse content since day one and have the vision to truly champion each Director's cocktail of unique weirdness.”
“If and when aliens land on Earth and want to understand the concept of ‘human creativity,’ I would just point them to the work of PRETTYBIRD,” adds Jasper. “They are the gold standard and I’m absolutely over the moon to be a member of this gang.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessPRETTYBIRD UK, Tue, 06 Jun 2017 14:59:17 GMT
