Alex Southam, director of acclaimed music videos for Alt-J, Chase & Status, Laura Mvula, Tom Odell, Lianne Le Havas, and others, has joined Rogue Films in London for his music video and commercial work.

The director who has become one of the UK's most promising young directors working in music video in the past couple of years, first made an impact with his videos for Binary, Labrynth Ear and I Break Horses, and then directed the ambitious video for Alt-J's Tessellate - a hip-hop retelling of Raphael's painting The School Of Athens – which garnered a nomination at the UK Music Video Awards in 2012. 

Since then he has directed videos for Chase & Status, Tom Odell and his video for Laura Mvula's She was nominated for best pop video at this year's UK MVAs. 

Dom Gomez, head of content at Rogue, says: "It’s not every day that you meet a talent like Alex. His bold, story-driven ideas, alongside his eye for detail, makes him a really important part of our roster. He feels perfectly placed to broaden his career into content and commercials.”

Alex will continue to be represented by OBmanagement for music videos in the UK and the US.
