Pulse Films - the studio behind Beyonce's Peabody Award winning 'Lemonade' film and winner of four awards at the 2016 UKMVA’s including 'Best Director', just to scratch the surface - have announced the promotion of Rik Green and the appointment of Alli Maxwell as Executive Producers.
The pair will be heading up the studio's UK and US Music divisions, strengthening the already formidable roster of talent. Let's meet the latest additions to the team.
1. Rik Green
Rik Green has been with Pulse since 2012, when he first joined as a Music Video producer.
Since then he's gone on to work on some of the studio's most iconic videos, including award winners 'Genghis Khan' for Miike Snow (directed by Ninian Doff), and 'No Reason' for Bonobo (Oscar Hudson).
Most recently Rik worked on 'Process', Kahlil Joseph's epic film for Sampha which launched globally on Apple Music. Rik was recognised at the 2016 UKMVA's with a highly-deserved 'Best Producer' nomination.
Rik is now set to head Pulse's UK music division. He commented: "I'm looking forward to building on the incredible momentum we have created in our music division and inspiring the outstanding roster of talent we have so that our work continues to be ambitious, fearless and singular as it can be."
2. Alli Maxwell
New to the team is Alli Maxwell. Previously based in New York before relocating to LA, Alli is a multidisciplinary creative and executive producer who's worked in every medium from commercials and music promos to VR and feature films.
Alli is bringing her extensive experience to the table at Pulse, having lead on projects for artists including Kendrick Lamar and Madonna, along with brands such as Samsung and Netflix.
Her new role will see her spearhead the studio's US music division out of Pulse's Los Angeles office, building on their global capacity and drive to push the art of music promo to new levels.
Alli commented: "I am excited by Pulse - they are a team that sees opportunity where others see limitations. We live in exceedingly divisive times, but music and creative expression gives me hope. To paraphrase and reinterpret Thomas Jefferson: A little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the creative world as storms in the physical."
Final word goes to Marisa Clifford, CEO of Pulse Films: "Rik has produced some of Pulse's most acclaimed work to date, and will smash it as our new EP in the UK. I am also delighted to welcome Alli to our US team. With her background and experience, I look forward to seeing her lead and grow the US music division. It's a really exciting time for Pulse Films."
