Pulse Films have announced the signing of award-winning director Jonathan Van Tulleken to its roster of commercial directors.
Jonathan has helmed two series of E4’s BAFTA honoured show MISFITS and in 2013 directed the entire second series of Channel 4’s celebrated and multi-award winning drama TOP BOY.
Ryan Staake has created some intriguing imagery, with 360˚ views of various Californian landscapes transformed into pulsating, quasi-organic globes, for German electro duo Booka Shade's Crossing Borders.
Ross Cooper at One In Three made a welcome return to music videos at the end of last year with his video for Crystal Fighters' Wave, where he engaged a host of trapeze artists to create a unique human wave.

One of the UK's 'most sought-after unsigned bands' (NME) have inked a deal with Virgin Records and for their new single Stuck In My Teeth, teamed-up with Abbie Stephens for this simple and very effective one-shot promo.
