"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."
