CHARLIE ROBINS JOINS AGILE FILMS.
17 November 2021

Music video whizz Charlie Robins has joined the promos roster at Agile Films.

His calling card is a 2015 promo for Naughty Boy and Beyoncé that was shot underwater. Apparently there is only one place on earth which meets the requirements of light, temperature, and current necessary to achieve the results Robins was after - just off a small atoll in French Polynesia.

Fortunately, the crew's meticulous research paid off. No matter how hard you look, there's nothing that suggests the action could have possibly been crafted in post.


Such work—along with a handful of striking commercials—leads head of music Precious Mahaga to say: "We're really glad to have Charlie joining us at Agile. He has a great body of work and we look forward to working with him on some exciting projects."

Keep your eyes peeled for Robins's Agile debut. In the meantime, check out this hedonistic promo for Jasper Tygner that mainlines Nineties rave culture. The title may be 'That's Too Slow', but the South London director's visuals are anything but.



To chat all things Charlie Robins, give Agile's Lucy Spong a ring on 020 7000 2882 or email lucys@agilefilms.com.
