SALOMON LIGTHELM JOINS PRETTYBIRD
3 March 2021

Prettybird have signed acclaimed filmmaker Salomon Ligthelm to their roster for UK and US representation.

Ligthelm brings a global perspective to his work, having grown up with missionary parents who took him all over the world. This exploratory mindset informs his versatile filmmaking style, as does the ability to find the human connection between disparate people, places, and cultures.


These days, the self-taught director lends his cinematic style and talent for dramatic storytelling to commercials, short films, and music promos, with forays into long-form content and multiple screenplays currently in development. Ligthelm has a lot to say, in short, and Prettybird are excited to amplify that voice.


Whether in his music videos, commercials or narrative works, you can see Salomon’s unique signature as a storyteller across them all.

"Salomon is the ideal filmmaker for Prettybird," says Prettybird president Ali Brown. "We love filmmakers whose creative voice resonates clearly in their work no matter the final shape it takes. Whether in his music videos, commercials or narrative works, you can see Salomon’s unique signature as a storyteller across them all."


Ligthelm himself notes: "I have always loved the work that Prettybird has done over the years. Their excellence in a wide variety of mediums is astounding and I'm incredibly humbled to be able to co-create with them.

"But perhaps most exciting is working with such kind, generous and integrous partners, who have always championed a wide variety of voices, bringing the best out of each unique and individual creative ally."
