FURMANN + VASSO JOIN OB.
16 May 2023

Outré directors Furmann Ahmed and Vasso Vu (or Furmann + Vasso, for short) have joined OB to "forge moments that make an impact on culture". Those are bold words, indeed, but the Scottish-Serbian duo back themselves to the hilt.

They've already released promos for Ashnikko and Jess Glynne this month, and chances are their next project is well already underway. No wonder CEO Otis Bell has a skip in his step: "We feel incredibly fortunate to have this opportunity to collaborate with Furmann + Vasso. It's rare to find such exciting new talent that so immediately delivers stylistically strong and inspiring work. Proud to have such unique and refreshing talent on our roster."



Producer Marija Djikic shares his enthusiasm: "My relationship with Furmaan + Vasso started almost two years ago. At first, it seemed like a one-off relationship, whereby we helped them out when needed. It was our collective obsession with making the impossible happen, and unrelenting love for uncanny creatives that got us to this exciting point.

"What I find phenomenal is that they never forced the idea of becoming a duo. It happened very naturally and they compliment each other brilliantly. All a producer ever wants is to work with directors that excite them creatively. When you have this, and the directors happen to be fun, incredible people - you feel like you've reached the stars!"
