Stephanie Walton joins COMPULSORY
COMPULSORY has announced the appointment of Stephanie Walton in the role of Head of New Business & Development, to expand on the London-based production company's profile in the commercial industry.
Walton joins COMPULSORY from her previous role as head of marketing & PR at Somesuch, and her career across the film industry has included working at global film streaming platform WeAreColony - where she worked on online marketing campaigns for films such as Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster, and Crystal Moselle's The Wolfpack - and stints at the filmmakers network Shooting People and The Salt Company.
She will be working with partner and executive producer Kadri Mahmoud, aiming to bring the company's promising roster of directors - including Taz Tron Delix, Emmanuel Adjei, Joe Nankin and Filmawi - to her industry-wide network in both advertising and film. Since launching in 2013, COMPULSORY has grown in music videos and narrative film, winning two awards for Adjei's video for Sevdaliza's Shahmaran at last year's UKMVAs as well as a SHOTS Silver Award for Music Video of the Year. A number of short films are in the pipeline, some selected for top tier festivals including Sundance, Raindance, and SXSW.
"We welcome Stephanie into the family with open arms," says Mahmoud. "Her experience in both the commercial and narrative film world will be a huge asset to us, as these are the two fastest growing areas of our business. Her attitude represents exactly the type of person we respect and admire and I look forward to seeing our relationship grow into something special for COMPULSORY."
Stephanie Walton adds: “COMPULSORY's growth over the last few years has been a joy to watch and it's an even bigger joy for me to be a part of that team now, and see what we can achieve together. Their relevance and proximity to London's culture is apparent in absolutely everything they make. On top of that, their ability to keep uncovering new talent around each corner is something I really admire. I am passionate about nurturing young directors and COMPULSORY have proved their dedication to talent management in its short few years in the industry - particularly in commercials, which I will be focusing on.”
