Colonel Blimp sign Ian Robertson
Ian Robertson, director of the acclaimed and hugely popular videos for Delta Heavy and Duke Dumont, has joined Colonel Blimp for music video representation.
Ian’s first stop motion music video Lyrical Spread won a BAFTA New Talent Award in 2011 and his music video commission for dubstep duo Delta Heavy’s Get By (top right) – involving stop motion animation that took a month to complete – racked up over two million views in one week (with over five million to date). That resulted in him winning a Young Director Award in Cannes, and the video being nominated for two UK MVAs in 2012.
Since then he has showed versatility with his highly entertaining live action video for Duke Dumont’s Need U (100%) – featuring a man with a beatbox growing in his stomach (above). That brought his talent for live-action direction to public attention – and over 4.5 million YouTube plays to date.
In their release announcing his signing to the company Colonel Blimp describe Ian as: “A bright young director and animator with captivating videos to his name. Ian has an eye for playful concepts, ambitious visuals and the patience to match. He’s the rare kind of director that is equally at home with capturing charming and comic performances in polished live action as he is creating beautiful and painstakingly handmade animation.”
