BAFTA-winning comedy director Keri Collins has expanded Presence's offer by adding his name to their already impressive roster.
The Welshman brings an accomplished reel to his new home, and is keen to add commercials to his repertoire with the help of Presence founder and executive producer Danny Fleet.
Collins, whose credits include 2013 crime comedy 'Convenience' and mockumentary sitcom Soft Border Patrol, says: "I'm super excited to be joining the roster at Presence. I connected with Danny immediately, recognising him as someone who is as equally enthusiastic and proactive as I like to be in my own work.
Keri has a great eye for comedy performance... and we hope his talents will make for an easy transition into commercials.
"Having worked in film and television for over ten years, I have long held a desire to work in commercials and to create work that connects with audiences in a big way in a short time frame. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to do so with the team at Presence".
Naturally, Fleet wants domestic artists like Collins to flourish in the commercial realm: "Our ambition at Presence is to develop homegrown talent in the UK where we have access to such excellent writers and directors. Audiences and the ad industry need them right now.
"Keri has a great eye for comedy performance. He has already shown his mettle with the prestigious awards he has won and we hope his talents will make for an easy transition into commercials”.
