Today, The Mill announced it is bolstering its international directorial roster with the addition of two new hires.
Alan Bibby joins the US team as creative director. From a background in design, advertising and fine art, Alan directs commercials, fashion films and music videos, collaborating with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Arianna Grande and Rihanna, and global brands including Audi, Lexus and Google. With a focus on automotive, fashion and technology, his eye for design, storytelling and visual effects has created award-winning work exploring the intersections between art, music, advertising and culture.
Executive producer Zu Al Kadiri, says: “With the diverse range of creative opportunities expanding across The Mill, having someone with Alan’s singular vision and eclectic creative skill set will be a huge asset as we continue to meet the challenge of delivering impactful, great work.”
Gundeep Anand joins the UK team as a director, with a background in docu-style content and photography. Influenced by his background as an ex youth worker, coaching in communities, council estates and schools, Gundeep has a natural talent for capturing the truth in-camera and creating thought-provoking moments. His life changed when his passion for promoting social change for good and filmmaking collided, leading him to establish The Last Stand.
Through the power of football, music and fashion, he has created a platform that allows communities to come together and has changed the lives of the people involved.
The Mill’s executive director, Stephen Venning, comments: “Gundeep genuinely is a force of nature. If you meet him, he’s someone whose positive energy always leaves a lasting impression. We’re very lucky to have him join The Mill director roster as he has the world at his feet right now. Our plan is to help open more doors for Gundeep and introduce him to an even wider array of exciting briefs and connect him with brands that want to make work that matters and give him the direction opportunities his eclectic talents deserve.”
