A PAIR OF SIGNINGS AT BLINK
17 September 2021

Blink have announced a pair of new additions to their roster in the form of John Ogunmuyiwa and directing duo Jungle.

Up-and-coming talent Ogunmuyiwa has already won awards for his deep dives into complex character dynamics, while Brazilian-born Jungle have become known for their intriguing use of VFX to enhance kinetic narratives. Let's take a closer look at the new arrivals...


1. John Ogunmuyiwa



Originally persuading his parents to buy him a camera under the guise of playing family photographer, Ogunmuyiwa is a resourceful filmmaker whose ingenuity shines through his unique approach to storytelling. For example, his short film 'Mandem' challenges audience prejudices by portraying a pair of drug dealers in unexpected ways.

Nigerian-born Ogunmuyiwa has also made a name for himself in the commercial realm with considered work for the likes of Adidas and Campaign Against Living Miserably. His observational style suggests he'll fit right in with the squad at Blink.



2. Jungle



Jungle draw on their South American roots to create striking imagery, playfully using VFX and CG to draw small details and quirks to the audience's attention. They pull viewers into heightened realities like Alice down the rabbit hole, leading them into bold and richly rendered visual worlds.

A recent commercial for Uber, for instance, mashed up space travel with taxis and takeaway to make us feel like we really are living in a brave new world. We're intrigued to see what the exciting duo get up to next with Blink's backing.
