OLLY JENNINGS JOINS PARTIZAN

Partizan have signed up-and-coming UK director Olly Jennings to their roster.

Starting out as an audio-visual artist, Olly began developing his unconventional film aesthetic with live installations at various exhibitions, from the RHS Chelsea Flower show to the Edinburgh Festival. After bringing a film element into these installations, he began to move into directing.

Olly has a long-running interest in the UK's urban culture, and as a result his work often looks at the grittier, unseen elements of London life. This heightened documentary style means he's in high demand for music promos, particularly in the urban and hip-hop scenes.

His appropriately energetic promo for Avelino's 'Energy' (featuring grime greats Stormzy and Skepta) was shot all over London on 8mm, 16mm, and VHS. The different mediums give the promo a hard edge and grimy vibe, which perfectly suits both the track and Olly's distinct style.



Now he's joined Partizan, Olly is bringing his fresh outlook to the commercial world. His first commercial film for Converse features rap artist Yungen modelling their latest product, with Olly's trademark visual flair bringing an effortless sense of cool to the project.

The film offers a promising glimpse of things to come - Partizan and Olly's partnership should produce some very creative results.


Olly Jenning's reel is up at Partizan, so we highly recommend you head on over and take a look. For more information on him or anyone else on the roster, get in touch with Danielle Coles at danielle.coles@partizan.com or give them a ring on 0207 851 0200.
