GEORGI BANKS-DAVIES JOINS ROGUE.
10 December 2019

Georgi Banks-Davies has renewed her highly productive connection with Kate Taylor by following the highly regarded industry figure from Skunk London to Rogue.

During their three years together at Skunk, Banks-Davies became one of the most sought-after directors in town and the duo are extremely pleased to continue a relationship which is even greater than the sum of its very impressive parts.

Over the last three years, Banks-Davies's career has gone from strength to strength with notable work for Lexus, CarWow, Audi, as well as the third instalment in the massive Sport England 'This Girl Can' campaign.

In addition, she has scored great success with two short films, the second of which – 'Garfield' – was screened at the Sundance Festival.

Kate Taylor is extremely effusive in her praise for Banks-Davies: "Working with Georgi has been one of the highlights of my career, so to have her back in the building with me is the dream. She is a unique talent with immense promise. A joy and an inspiration to work with, Georgi's top quality reel sits perfectly within the Rogue roster, standing out as unique and multifaceted whilst complementing the essence of what we do. I can't wait to see Georgi flourish further here at Rogue"

Banks-Davies returns the compliment: "YAY! Best sums up my excitement to officially being a Rogue, on a roster of so many directors I fan-girl over. I can't wait to jump back into ad-land, alongside my EP extraordinaire Kate."

Here - according to our user ratings - are Banks-Davies's best three films on DAVID REVIEWS, according to our audience:


1) Lexus - Sunrise to Sunrise (2019)

South Africa-based photographer Elsa Bleda is the focal point of this terrific commercial for Lexus. There's no sign that director Georgi Banks-Davies was daunted by the idea of building a film around someone famous for creating her own striking images... on the contrary she has risen to the challenge by furnishing this TVC with her own impressive photography.

2) carwow - Hunt (2018)

Carwow's advertising has had a considerable upgrade thanks to agency Creature and director Georgi Banks-Davies. The price comparison service allows its users to work out which car they want and then search for the best possible deal, and - having used it - DAVID can vouch for its effectiveness.

3) Sport England - Fit Got Real (2018)

Sport England's latest kick up the nation's collective backside comes courtesy of director Georgi Banks-Davies, and what follows is another sweaty, relatable rallying cry to women ready to bid the sofa adieu. Keen to make an extra song and dance about their 2018 fitness drive, Barbra Streisand's ‘Don't Rain On My Parade' accompanies a well-judged montage of activity.
