Caviar sign directing duo Norman Bates
Caviar have signed Belgian filmmakers Norman Bates for commercial & music video representation in Belgium, Holland, Spain and the UK.
Norman Bates are Inti Calfat and Dirk Verheye, who met at a scriptwriting course and decided to make films together. Combining a documentary background with a more classical art history education, the duo have shot global commercial campaigns for clients including Coca Cola, European Parliament, HTC, Mazda, Mercedes, Renault, Samsonite and Uniqlo. Their music video work includes promos for Milow, Roscoe and last year's intensely dramatic clip for Domino Gold's Wichita.
The duo have won various awards including Eurobest, Spikes Asia and The New York International Film Festival, and in 2017, they shot their first fiction series Over Water for Belgian Networks. The series has already picked up international distribution and they are currently developing a new fiction series and their first feature film.
“We are thrilled to welcome Inti and Dirk to the Caviar family," says Georgie MacEchern, head of sales at Caviar in London. "Having repped the guys when they first joined Stink, I am superexcited to be reunited with this talented pair and for us all to be working together again and get some cool projects off the ground.”
Norman Bates added: “We’ve closely followed Caviar, since they have this close connection to our home
market in Belgium. The work they do is cutting edge and they have an amazing network and team of people
that we are excited to start working with.”
