SPECIALIST FOOD AND DRINK DIVISION HUNGRYDORY OPENS IN LONDON
14 June 2022

Between them, John Doris and Pete Ryan of HunkyDory know a thing or two about food and drink advertising so they've decided to open a new division of the company dedicated to this area of the market.

HungryDory's roster of talent from the worlds of commercials, cookery television, and social media has been designed to cover every facet of food, drink and product-based content.

Agility is the watchword as HungryDory brings a 'no job too small' ethos into the world of tabletop, promising to provide the same level of expertise whether the project is a TVC planned for primetime TV or a humble Instagram story.

Pete Ryan is understandably thrilled about a new venture dear to his heart: "I’m so excited to be working with John and the team as the boundaries between food and performance often get blurred nowadays and having talent from either roster is a great advantage for me to exploit. The social aspect of eating and enjoying food and drink is as big in the UK as the close up beauty of it, and together we can offer both."

For his part, John Doris says: "We have outstanding table top directing talent at HungryDory who can work to any brief in their own right. Our table top directors can also work alongside our HunkyDory directors to deliver food craft and beauty within a comedy, documentary or any creative narrative or genre. So we can really be your one-stop table top shop, offering craft, continuity and value."

In addition to the rostered talent, HungryDory are promising to source specialist freelance directors for any project requiring them.

You can check out the talents on offer by visiting the HungryDory website, and then get on the blower to Pete Ryan by dialling 020 7267 5000 or you can email him using pete@hunkydoryfilms.co.uk.
