IT'S MAREK PARTYS TIME FOR KODE.
28 February 2023

KODE's 2023 recruitment drive continues with the addition of Czech talent Marek Partys. With Meena Ayittey and Emily Freda Sharp not long through the door, what inspired executive producer Jack Goodwin to sign Partys?

"Marek's work is incredibly relevant, his positive energy is totally infectious, and his ability to span many genres means that his ads are eye-catching and eye-watering in equal parts," says Goodwin. "It's for these reasons, and many more, that I'm excited to be welcoming him to KODE."



"I'm truly inspired by human emotion and the extent of the complexity of our beings. I try to make films that evoke a strong emotional response, be that joy, sadness or anything in between—I'm looking forward to doing this with the team at KODE.

"The quality of their output and their attitude to production has made them one of the major players in the UK market. And I'm happy to be a part of the family. Not to mention that on the very first call together I felt like I'd known the Kode people for a long time. And this friendly atmosphere was another of the important aspects of why I decided to join."
