PETER HARTON JOINS MOXIE PICTURES.
23 January 2022

Moxie Pictures have completed the signing of Danish director Peter Harton. One of Denmark's best exports besides bacon and Peter Schmeichel, Harton joins for both UK and US representation, bringing a loaded reel and bags of experience with him.

There's a superb brand of humour we've come to associate with Denmark over the years, and as you can see from this liver pâté commercial, it's something Harton can deliver in spades.


It's work like this which prompted managing director Dawn Laren to reveal: "I was immediately seduced by the brilliance of Peter's work, which is both laugh out loud hilarious and strikingly original in equal measure; the man himself is just as impressive. I can't wait to embark on our journey together".


The directors inspire me, the producers are very straightforward non-bullshitters and, on top of that, very kind too.

 ”

Man of the hour Harton is equally excited: "What can I say? I have been following Moxie for over a decade, and the work that comes from that place speaks for itself, whether it is fiction, documentary, or advertising."


The Dane also likes his new colleagues, which is always a good start: "The directors inspire me, and the producers are very straightforward non-bullshitters and, on top of that, very kind too. I am very proud and flattered that they have asked me to jump on board, and I hope this marks the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship."
