BLACK LABEL SCORE A HAT-TRICK.

Black Label have signed three directorial talents to their roster: Kathryn Ferguson, Lisa Gunning, and Tell No One.

Having all previously plied their trade at Good Egg, many will be familiar with Black Label’s new additions and the quality of their work. This triple signing underlines Black Label’s ambitions for 2017 and beyond.

Read on for more details on this directing trinity…


1. Kathryn Ferguson



A director, scholar, and fashion film curator, Ferguson is known for her stylish and progressive reel. The Belfast-born filmmaker flits from commercial shoots to academic pursuits, all the while encouraging positive depictions of women on screen.

One example of Ferguson’s ethos is this Selfridges film. As part of the department store’s ‘Beauty Project’, her documentary approach gives her cast free rein while ensuring an attractive outcome.



2. Lisa Gunning



Having successfully transitioned from the editing booth to the director’s chair, Gunning’s skillset continues to grow. Having established herself as a promo specialist, she’s increasingly making her mark in the commercial realm.

Last year, Gunning delivered a serene trio of films for Mini. She eased each protagonist into their own private getaway, transporting this woman from a crowded pool to the open sea.



3. Tell No One



Tell No One are Remi Weekes and Luke White. The pair live up to their enigmatic moniker by crafting experimental films. After populating their website with all manner of visual curiosities, Tell No One are keen to push on.

Sure enough, their ambition is evident in this H&M film. Blending a first-person perspective and spy thriller stunt work, Weekes and White also ensured injury-prone striker Andy Carroll made it through in one piece.



You can find more from Kathryn Ferguson, Lisa Gunning, and Tell One More by visiting the Black Label directors page. To discuss availability, ring Nicci Clark on 020 7034 2650 or email her at nicci@blacklabelproductions.net.
