LEMONADE REPS EMBRACE PROGRESS.
31 March 2021

Brighton and London-based The Progress Film Company are the latest talented outfit to join Lemonade Reps.

Founded by directors Matt Hopkins and Ben Lankester in 2010, Progress comprise a nine-strong directing roster (Progress X) and a full-service production studio (Progress S). Adding Lemonade to the mix pleases managing director/executive producer Andrew Porteous.

"The timing couldnít be better to have Lemonade as our repping company as we enter a new phase of our growth," Porteous says. "I've known Corin for a long time and implicitly trust his creative judgement, and that our companies share the same ethos."


Porteous adds: "We are poised to tackle all aspects of the advertising film market with our established Progress X roster and the emerging talent of Progress S. Myself, Antoinette [De Lisser] and Progress are excited about this new partnership with Lemonade as we look to build even greater momentum."


Progress have all the right sensibilities and foundations to become a well-loved and deeply resourceful production company.

 ”

That sort of talk excites Lemonade founder Corin West: "Like Lemonade, Progress have big plans and we're thrilled our partnership will help to realise them. Since Andrew Porteous and Antoinette De Lisser joined Progress, the industry has been closely watching what these guys are going to do next. They have all the right sensibilities and foundations to become a well-loved and deeply resourceful production company."
