Agile Films have announced two new signings to their music video directors' roster in London: Giraffe Studios and Brock Neal-Roberts.

Involved in all aspects of production, Giraffe Studios’ clients include JagJaguwar, Fender, Condé Nast, ATO, Epitaph/Anti, Fat Possum, and Domino Records. The sisters' also work together as professional clowns, and are currently working on a narrative film documenting Mime in America.
