UNIT9 AND KOBY ADOM UNITE.
15 May 2022

Noughts + Crosses and Top Boy director Koby Adom is ready to make his advertising debut with UNIT9. Adom only graduated from the London Film School in 2017, but he’s already a firm favourite of broadcasters, streaming services, and film festival attendees. Lucky for him, one of those attendees was UNIT9's Adam Dolman.

"We were fortunate enough to meet Koby on the short film circuit, having seen his brilliant short film 'Haircut'. It was immediately clear that he was a unique talent." So, what else convinced Dolman to recruit Adom?



"When he followed that up with Top Boy and Noughts + Crosses, we could see he was ready to make the step into commercials. He also has such a great perspective on life and is one of the most genuinely optimistic and positive people I have come across. We can't wait for him to get started."


It will be a dream... to create a new type of art form in the commercial world.

 ”

As the founder of his own production company, DBK Studios, Adom knows how important it is to back directors early in their careers. He gets that vibe from Dolman and UNIT9, as well as clear support for his advertising ambitions.



"I'm excited to join UNIT9 because of their intimate approach to film making and their cinematic outlook on commercials," Adom says. "It will be a dream to exercise my dramatic knowledge, with their great reputation, to create a new type of art form in the commercial world."
