ACCLAIMED DIRECTOR WIZ JOINS MY ACCOMPLICE

Acclaimed director Wiz has joined the roster at My Accomplice where he will continue to ply his trade across all forms of film-making.

My Accomplice already has a relationship with the enigmatic director after working with him on two promos for Kasabian and they describe themselves as "delighted" at his decision to join them for representation.

They're right to do so as directors of WIZ's stature are few and far between and My Accomplice's Jamie Clark is understandably thrilled about this development: "To be able to attract a director of WIZ's status is a great validation of the standard of work we have achieved."



WIZ trained under legendary Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski before breaking through in his own right in 1992 with 'Weekender'. The short film - which was shown on Channel 4 - looked at club and drug culture through the prism of the band 'Flowered Up' and was acclaimed for its candid look at the hedonism of the era.


To be involved in a WIZ film means becoming fully immersed.

WIZ has an extraordinary ability to represent life's underbelly, often drawing gritty performances from cleverly cast performers underlined by stylised cinematography. He is a director who has operated at the forefront of youth culture throughout his career, always demonstrating an innate understanding of the Zeitgeist and reflecting it with immense skill.



WIZ' promo portfolio is a veritable who's who of talent both in terms of the artists he's worked with and the actors he's attracted to take part. These include Michael Fassbender, Rosario Dawson, Ben Whishaw, Stephen Graham, Noel Fielding and artists Alexander McQueen, David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Massive Attack, Oasis, Chemical Brothers, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Dizzee Rascal, Emeli Sandé, Disclosure, Richard Fearless, and Will Young.

My Accomplice's Jamie Clark is clearly in awe of his new director: "Wiz is such an extraordinary filmmaker, and it’s been a pleasure to meet him and start working with him. His experience and work legacy are phenomenal and his passion for ideas and for the film making process are infectious. To be involved in a WIZ film means becoming fully immersed."



WIZ took part in DAVID REVIEWS's CraftWorks event in June when he showcased two of his recent promos including this 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'-inspired film for Kasabian. His introspective approach to the session revealed a director who thinks long and hard about his craft and one who brings a quiet determination to ensure a brilliant outcome for every project.
