The strikingly named director Virgil Ferragut has joined Common People Films for commercial representation.
A Central Saint Martins graduate, Ferragut has "always loved strong design in all its facets", and wants to "show beauty in all things". Even rampant consumerism becomes a spectacle in Ferragut's hands.
"Scriptwriting, casting, cinematography, styling, lighting, editing, color grading... it's all equally important to me in pursuit of a single goal: films that amaze and have a voice. I'm happy to be joining this kind of company that has a very forward-thinking outlook on directing and what filmmakers can do."
It's a creative, inspiring house... I can't wait to see what we cook up together!
Wise to Ferragut's potential is CMN PPL FLMS executive producer Emily Crofton-Atkins: "Virgil is a force - he makes sure that every script he sees gets to a calibre that is reel-worthy. He's going to be very successful here in the UK market and we're delighted to have him join our roster."
Ferragut shares Crofton-Atkins's optimism: "CMN PPL FLMs is a creative, inspiring house, working with people who have a hand in various parts of the industry. I can't wait to see what we cook up together!"
