NEW DUO FOR MY ACCOMPLICE
11 December 2019

The eclectic roster of highly talented directors at My Accomplice has been further bolstered by the arrival of Dorothy Allen-Pickard and Rohan Blair-Mangat.

The duo are directors constantly working on a multitude of fascinating projects across various media and - because of that - you'll always see a refreshing differentness in their commercial work.


1. Dorothy Allen-Pickard



Dorothy Allen-Pickard is a director whose progress we've followed at DAVID REVIEWS since seeing her fantastic short film 'The Mess' at Homespun Yarns a few years ago. A Londoner, Allen Pickard recently completed an MA in Film at Goldsmiths University. Her career as a filmmaker began while she was studying French and Film at Warwick University, and she won the Guardian Documentary Award for her first film 'In the Name of Greatness'.

'The Mess' was awarded with Best UK Short at Open City Doc Fest, Young Director's Award, Vimeo Staff Pick and was shortlisted for Grierson Short Award.



Allen-Pickard's films have been shown at various festivals where her eye for visceral authenticity has caught the eye of many a jury.


2. Rohan Blair-Mangat



Rohan Blair-Mangat graduated from Central Saint Martins with a degree in Fine Art. His projects have led him to work with a cavalcade of celebrity talent including JAY-Z, Lionel Messi, Daisy Ridley, Alexander Wang and Lewis Hamilton.

Rohan recently directed 'Nasir - The Film', a visual album for Nas' 2018 self-titled release, and a Clio award-winning music video with 'Black Thought', to promote the documentary series 'Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story'. In 2017 he directed a short film to accompany 'Bam', from JAY-Z's album '4:44', which was nominated at both Camerimage and the UKMVAs.



Blair-Mangat has made music videos for artists like DVSN, Bryson Tiller, Takeoff, 6LACK and Pauli The PSM, along with several commercial projects for clients including Adidas, Beats By Dre, Vice, Apple Music, Dazed and Nike.

The film he created in collaboration with Wretch 32 was screened at the Tate Britain and selected by Lynne Ramsay for the series 'Electric Shorts'.
