Nez signs to Pulse Films in the UK
Nez, the director of acclaimed and award-winning music videos for Disclosure, Rudimental, Kid Cudi and many others, has signed to Pulse Films for commercial and music video representation in the UK.
Having emerged almost a decade ago with videos for the likes of M.I.A. and Kano, and progressing to make the videos for Lily Allen's The Fear and Paolo Nutini's Candy, Nez won the prestigious Young Director Award at Cannes after he directed the groundbreaking fashion film for Halston in 2009. He has divided his time between commercial and music projects ever since.
As a commercials director, his work includes ads for brands such as Fruit of the Loom and Smirnoff. But he has maintained a strong connection with music videos, with his acclaimed videos for Bruno Mars' The Lazy Song (featuring the late Leonard Nimoy) in 2011, Rudimental's Waiting All Night in 2013, and Ten Walls' Walking With Elephants in 2014. Last year the directed Rudimental's Never Let You Go.
“I wanted to join a production company that shared and understood my goals as a director," Nez has commented. "For me, Pulse is one of the few companies that truly understand the future of content. It was clear after our first meeting that this would be the perfect fit for me as a filmmaker and I'm excited to see the results of our collaboration."
James Sorton, Pulse's MD of commercials and music videos, has added: “Nez is an incredibly talented director with clear, distinctive tone of voice. I’ve always admired and have been inspired by the worlds he creates in his work. We are truly delighted that he’s joining the roster and cannot wait to see the amazing things we will create together."
