Rattling Stick has announced the arrival of French director, Loren Denis to their UK roster.
Loren joins the London based production company from Parisian outlet Les Fils De. She previously cut her teeth in New York’s fashion industry, both as a successful model and keen photographer.
Working with some of the best fashion photographers in the business, such as Tom Munro, Peter Beard, Satoshi Saikusa and Guy Aroch, Loren went on to discover a passion for film and specifically directing. Through her unique and immersive directing style, Loren gives her audience an intimate glimpse into the lives of her subjects, whilst retaining a compelling edginess. Her projects for Paris National Opera and Camille Tanoh, which she conceptualised and wrote with her long time creative partner Anthony Vibert, are great examples of her work.
She now has directing projects for Rayban, Eastpak, Camille Tanoh and the Paris National Opera under her belt and representation in LA through Superprime.
Loren comments: “Rattling stick is one of the best production companies in the UK and I have been following some of their directors for a while. The idea behind all my projects is to try and find new ways to film, and ultimately embark the viewer onto a sensory, organic and surprising trip. I find Rattling Stick’s roster fresh, impactful, with vision, and very often audacious in their choices. I actually can’t wait to start working on new projects alongside them!”
Rattling Stick’s First Lady, Katie Keith, adds: “We’re thrilled to have Loren join us and are very excited about the opportunities the UK market will offer her. Loren’s work is incredibly fresh yet original, effortless with its own unique energy. Whether dealing with photographic creative or more light-hearted performance, Loren brings her own strong signature look. Hugely talented and such a proactive and passionate director, she has already built up an impressive body of work. We see huge potential for Loren in the UK and she can’t wait to get started over here.”
The move for Loren also marks a more formal arrangement between the Rattling Stick and Les Fils De, with Daniel Kleinman, Ringan Ledwidge, Sara Dunlop and Pete Riski joining the company’s roster for representation in the French market.
Les Fils De co-founder Ben Duval says: “Nowadays Les Fils De is established as a high quality creative company in Paris, but ever since we launched 7 years ago, the company has continued to grow and we’ve always stayed focused on developing and representing amazing talents. It was a perfect time to start looking for a good partner in the UK and I couldn’t hope for a better partner than Rattling Stick!”
He adds: “Meeting Katie Keith was a terrific moment. We immediately felt that we have a cultural fit, similar DNA and a lot of shared common interests. We both have a family feel and both believe in a lean structure and taking care of the people we work with.”
