OBJECT & ANIMAL AND PHANTASM JOIN FORCES
19 January 2021

Production companies Object & Animal and Phantasm have joined forces to co-produce projects across the UK, US, and France.

The move reinforces their existing partnership, representing directors Amber Grace Johnson, Andrew Thomas Huang, Emmanuel Adjei, Jessy Moussallem, and FKA twigs across each territories. Adding joint productions into the mix only strengthens the teams' ongoing bond.


With similarly driven ambitions and a mutual commitment to facilitating an ethical and responsible production approach, the partnership intends to move as one in order to maximise their impact worldwide.

Phantasm's Gary Farkas praises relative newcomers Object & Animal as he explains: "We were excited and impressed by the Object & Animal project since day one, and their achievement in only two years is absolutely fantastic. Today, our business is challenged and we all need to rethink our production approach.

"More than ever, we needed a local creative partner we share the same vision with and trust fully in order to keep developing talents and producing daring content across borders. We're proud and delighted to officially team up with them today."


Dom Thomas, partner at Object & Animal, is equally excited about this new wave of music promos, commercials, and long form content: "The passion and enthusiasm Phantasm bring and environment they've built for creative talent is an inspiration.

"They share the same beliefs about good creative and business practice, and are equally committed to creating a platform for diverse voices to create outstanding work - we're proud to be developing this partnership with them."
