Riff Raff Films have announced that they are representing The Directors Bureau for UK commercials - the first time that the American production company has partnered with a London-based company for UK representation. 

Founded in 1994 by Mike Mills and Roman Coppola, The Directors Bureau boasts a stellar roster of directing talent including Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola, Melodie McDaniel, Nash Edgerton, Graydon Sheppard, as well as Mills and (Roman) Coppola.

Riff Raff, founded by Matthew Fone in 2011, already represent a couple of directors repped by The Directors Bureau in the US - Patrick Daughters and David Altobelli – for commercials and music videos, as well the likes of Megaforce, Jonas & Francois, Nez and Korner Union.  

"I've known The Bureau for a long time and always felt we had the same sensibilities to do creative, inspirational work," says Fone. "Now seemed the perfect time to help introduce the amazing talent of The Directors Bureau to the UK market."

Roman Coppola says: "I'm delighted that The Directors Bureau and Riff Raff will be teaming up. our companies share so many common interests, particularly making inventive, unexpected, creative work in all fields of advertising; commercials, digital, music videos, and working with directors that have diverse backgrounds."
