PRETTYBIRD Signs Director Tom Noakes for UK and US Representation
Adding to their fast-growing and increasingly impressive roster, PRETTYBIRD has signed multi award winning director Tom Noakes, who Executive Producer Juliette Larthe describes as “a breath of fresh air.” Best known for his broad comedy reel, Tom is ultimately charged by cinema and storytelling—A talent he hopes will be exploited and nurtured at PRETTYBIRD.
“PRETTYBIRD is sexy!” Says Tom. “Common in directors, but rare in companies is voice, and PRETTYBIRD’s got a choir. A reckless youthful energy and willingness to hit the nontraditional targets no one else can see. To grow wings in a nest that embraces and nurtures bold, unconventional work. To experiment with opportunities outside traditional advertising that afford greater creative freedom and conceptual elasticity. That’s wildly attractive to me!”
Hailing from a small coastal town in Australia, Tom’s formative film education was recording his “collective muse and closest friends” skateboarding, and then using the footage to experiment with VFX and editing. A hippy at heart, when Tom is not shooting commercials and music videos, or exploring film in all its guises, he continues to skate as much as he can. He fondly credits the environment and people he grew up with as inspiration for the artist he is today.
PRETTYBIRD UK Sales Representative Charlie Roberson says, “I’m excited to show off such a brilliant directing talent. Tom is funny. Very funny, but as a filmmaker he explores the depths of the human condition with a wry smile, and a laugh where it’s needed. British born and raised down under, he is full of energy and a perfect fit at PRETTYBIRD.” Roberson continued to describe Tom’s directing style as, “Cinematic, atmospheric and absurd. Film that draws experience; appealing to emotion over logic.”
