PRETTYBIRD SWOOP FOR JOSEPH WILSON
9 November 2021

London filmmaker Joseph Wilson has joined Prettybird UK for commercial representation.

The East End has been Wilson's beat for years, whether as a director, an activist, or a drag performer. In 2015, the Repton Boxing Club in Bethnal Green received a crash course in drag that typifies Wilson's bold approach.



Once Prettybird co-founder Juliette Larthe caught wind of the situation, Somerset House beckoned. "Each film I have seen has had such a progression in terms of narrative and beauty that I just couldn't wait another minute to showcase him", Larthe says. "I feel his passion in every frame."


I can't wait to start working with such a wonderful team of people and to push myself creatively in new and exciting ways.

 ”

Larthe adds: "Joseph is already a superstar to me, and an important filmmaker in our community as his recent awards have shown - I can't wait to see what our collaborations and strategy will bring. Joseph Wilson is so clearly talented with the right ambition, so it's a delight to have Joseph on our roster."



Meanwhile, Wilson is keen to explore new territory: "As an artist having worked independently for most of my career, I am beyond excited to be joining the roster at Prettybird. I can't wait to start working with such a wonderful team of people and to push myself creatively in new and exciting ways."
