Biscuit Signs Directors Daniel Warwick & Laerke Herthoni https://www.adforum.com/production/6666938/press-releases/72439/biscuit-signs-directors-daniel-warwick-laerke-herthoni https://www.adforum.com/production/6666938/press-releases/72439/biscuit-signs-directors-daniel-warwick-laerke-herthoni Los Angeles, CA and London, UK (March 7, 2018) – Biscuit Filmworks today announced two new signings to its directorial roster: Daniel Warwick for representation in the U.S. and U.K., and Laerke Herthoni in the U.K.

“Daniel and Laerke are accomplished filmmakers and storytellers, each with a unique visual style, and we’re very happy to welcome them to Biscuit,” said Rupert Reynolds-MacLean, Managing Director, Biscuit UK. “Laerke is one of the most exciting young directors to emerge in the last few years; her mixture of car work and atmospheric narrative filmmaking is very impressive. Daniel is a perfect fit for Biscuit and feels like he should have always been with us. Over the last few years he has firmly established himself as one of Europe’s preeminent comedy directors – he’s also one of the funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Daniel Warwick is a bold director who deftly balances curated art direction with surreal comedy. Born in England and raised in the U.S. and Germany, his comfort across cultures gives him a unique insight and chameleon-like ability to craft memorable work for any market. His award-winning commercials include Smart “Yellow Car,” Mercedes-Benz “Chicken,” and Das Handwerk “The Way of the Master,” which collectively earned recognition from Cannes Lions, D&AD, Clio, Epica, and the Art Directors Club, among others. Daniel also possesses deep technical knowledge of his craft ranging from camera and lighting choices to art direction.

Laerke Herthoni is one Scandanavia’s top talents, twice named as Sweden’s best director by Roygalan and nominated as Europe’s best director at the Young Directors Awards. She is known for her strong narrative-driven spots, which blend intimacy with cinematic visuals for universally compelling stories. Her work such as Trygghansa “Don’t Drink and Dive,” Georg Jensen “You Can Never Be Too Much You,” and Volvo “A Peace of Little Mind” have earned multiple awards from top shows including Cannes Lions, The One Show, and the LIA Awards. Laerke was recently featured in HuffPost alongside Kathryn Bigelow, Ava DuVernay, and Susanne Bier as a barrier-breaking filmmaker.

Isaiah Seret – alt-J “Pleader” https://www.adforum.com/production/6666938/press-releases/70625/isaiah-seret-alt-j-pleader https://www.adforum.com/production/6666938/press-releases/70625/isaiah-seret-alt-j-pleader This is not your regular music video – it’s a six-minute, miniature epic inspired by “Pleader,” the closing cut on alt-J‘s album Relaxer.

The song itself is inspired by Richard Llewelyn’s book How Green Was My Valley, a story set in 19th century Wales in a small mining town, in part about a family that hopes its youngest son will find a better life. The song by alt-J is grand, too, recorded in a cathedral with an organ, a boys choir (alt-J keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton was a member of this choir as a child) and the London Metropolitan Orchestra.

alt-J say “When we set out to make a video for ‘Pleader’, we sent the following one-line brief to director, Isaiah Seret: ‘A Welsh mining love story; A tidal wave of earth.’ What Isaiah came back with was an epic short-film inspired both by the song’s source material and Tarkovsky’s The Sacrifice. A family must pit their desire to have a child against the knowledge that this would destroy their community. The hypnotic, hymnal quality of the song binds the video throughout, hinting at redemption while destruction takes place.”

Baz Luhrmann – ERDEMxHM “The Secret Life Of Flowers” https://www.adforum.com/production/6666938/press-releases/70375/baz-luhrmann-erdemxhm-the-secret-life-of-flowers https://www.adforum.com/production/6666938/press-releases/70375/baz-luhrmann-erdemxhm-the-secret-life-of-flowers ERDEMxHM directed by Baz Luhrmann, co-produced by Biscuit Filmworks.
The visionary film maker Baz Luhrmann has created a unique and spectacular cinematic short film exclusively for ERDEM x H&M. “The Secret Life of Flowers” is set in a grand country mansion with a full cast of actors and models. The film will also debut an exclusive new track by Years & Years, “Hypnotised”. Treating the short film like a full movie in itself, it has all of the passion, drama and vivacity that has made Baz one of the world’s greatest living film makers.
“I wanted the film to be like a whole movie. It’s a very modern love story, set in a country house that is full of its own secrets and it’s like a metaphor for our times – it’s harsh out there in the world, but in here, the things that really matter keep growing in an eternal spring,” says Baz Luhrmann.
Baz Luhrmann’s film for ERDEM x H&M is set in a mysterious country mansion where it is “always spring”. The house is like its own private world that is always filled with flowers, influenced by ERDEM’s celebrated floral prints. When young friends come to stay, a magnetic love triangle begins, in the film starring upcoming actors Tom Rhys Harries, Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Ruby Dagnall.
They are joined by acclaimed actress Harriet Walter, as well as super models Saskia de Brauw, Imaan Hammam, Grace Hartzel, Fernando Cabral, Neels Visser and Tony Ward. Throughout, Baz used pieces from the ERDEM x H&M collection to define the characters and propel the narrative, while the new track by Years & Years captures the mood of positivity, friendship and love.
Baz Luhrmann has created some of the best-loved films of our times. He has directed Moulin Rouge!, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, The Great Gatsby and Strictly Ballroom, and most recently created the TV show The Get Down.
The ERDEM x H&M collection will be available in selected H&M stores, as well as on hm.com, from November 2.
