LA-based production company London Alley Entertainment has opened a new office in London, providing a new home production company base for Emil Nava, one the UK's biggest music video directors.

London Alley UK will be home to the prolific Nava – who this year has made hugely successful videos for Calvin Harris and Ed Sheeran (his video for Sing, above, won an MTV VMA in August) – and the entire LA-based LAE roster – including Colin Tilley (director of the Nicki Minaj Anaconda video, who has also previously worked with UK artists Cheryl Cole and Little Mix), Hannah Lux Davis, Mickey Finnegan, Benny Boom, Nathan Cox and Shane Drake. Additional UK-based signings are also in the pipeline.

The move follows Emil Nava's signing with LAE, one of the most successful music video production outfits in the US, earlier this year and starting to divide his time between London and LA. London Alley UK has now been launched by LAE, – founded by Luga Podesta in 2007 – with the support of Nava's long-time agent, OB Management, who will be representing the company in the UK.  

"Since our collaboration with London Alley earlier this year, we’ve seen Emil explode into the US market - it would be hard for Emil to have any more enthusiasm than he already has for music videos, but he has definitely found another level of inspiration and creativity," says Otis Bell, founder of OB Management. "We’re super excited to be working with London Alley in the UK. We feel there is a gap in the market for a high-end music video production company focusing on premium pop artists.  With the likes of Emil Nava and Colin Tilley on the roster, they’re primed for success."
