Georgia Hudson signs to Park Pictures
Georgia Hudson has signed to Park Pictures for music videos and commercials.
The director, who has created acclaimed music videos for the likes of P!nk, Mø, Loyle Carner, Glass Animals, and, most recently, Tom Misch, has joined the US and London-based production company for representation in the US, UK and Netherlands, for commercials, branded content and music videos.
One of the leading music video directors working in London for the past five years, Hudson broke into the US market with her spectacular video for P!nk's smash hit What About Us in the summer of 2017. That was followed by her being nominated for Best Director for the first time at the UK Music Video Awards last October.
Having spent most of her career with Agile Films, now she joins Park Pictures, the company established in the late 90s by producer Jackie Kelman Bisbee and director/DoP Lance Acord, and now home to directors such as Vincent Haycock, AJ Rojas, Jon Watts, Andrea Arnold and OK Go's Damian Kulash.
“Every once in a while, you see an emerging director’s work and know you’ve seen the next generation of exceptional talent - Georgia Hudson is that director for us," says Park Pictures Executive Producer Jackie Kelman Bisbee. "Her meticulous attention to choreography and camera movement creates powerful and dramatic films. She applies her bold and poetic style to everything she touches, whether it be music videos, commercials or short films. We are thrilled to have Georgia as part of the Park family.”
London EP/ MD Stephen Brierley adds: “Georgia’s background in art and fashion cuts into all her work, which is beautiful and aesthetically dynamic, creating a strong emotional connection with audiences. She has a great future ahead and we are delighted that she has chosen to join us at Park."
Georgia grew up in London, attended Camberwell Art School, and started working in fashion, art directing runway shows and making short fashion promos after graduating. Headhunted by i-D magazine, she went on to write and make documentaries and art films for them, before breaking into music video directing.
In addition to her music vdieos, she has directed commercial projects for brands such as Under Armour and Dick’s Sporting Goods. She is currently working on the short film Temper, an arts documentary investigating youth culture and grief, slated for release later this year.

Hudson says: “Not only is Park Pictures owned and run by one of the most charismatic and motivated women that you could meet, they have an insanely good roster of directors who make authentic and soulful work that holds impact and gravity. It is absolutely wild to be able to join that tribe and be a part of the artistic diversity and freshness that, as a company, Park has always naturally sustained.
"More than anything, I love that Park Pictures has a long history of creating meaningful and conscientious moving image. This company shone out to me as the place to go to have your creativity protected and projected by a group of incredibly experienced EP’s, sales reps and individuals.”
