Park Village sign Nos
Cinematographer-turned-director Nos, who has shot award-winning C4 series Four To The Floor and the recent reboot of YO! MTV Raps, has signed to Park Village for music videos and commercials.
Nos has worked with some of the UK's most exciting music talent, such as Octavian, MS Banks, IAMDDB and Novelist, in his TV show work, conceiving and shooting innovative live music performance, documentary and short idents.
He also gained plaudits for the stirring and striking depiction of Black British identity in his video for Che Lingo's My Block (below) earlier this year. Furthermore his work on the C4 documentary Pirate Mentality displayed his passion for fusing live music into documentary storytelling, demonstrating his knack for making it authentic and exciting.
Nos also has a strong body of work for brands including Lacoste, Reebok, and Fred Perry, all of which combine his flair for diverse stories, mixed media, dynamic camera movement and potency, not just in their content, but their creative execution.
Isaac Tomiczek, head of new business at Park Village says: “I first met Nos at a BFI Future Film talk where he was a panellist. He was passionate, candid, insightful, inspirational, and as a result I quickly found myself getting excited about his filmmaking.
"I then saw him working, on the set of YO! MTV Raps where I was very impressed with his pleasant personality, poise, approach to a certain level of perfection, and his professionalism (in the face of challenges), all of which I believe are traits that single out some of the very best directors. Finally, when he visited our studios and talked us through some of his upcoming projects, I knew he was the real deal. I’m very excited to get him working and winning over the rest of the world with his wonderful (and occasionally wild) ideas”.
Nos says of his signing to Park Village: “Coming from quite an independent background, I've always been inclined to do a lot of aspects of creation myself. It's an exciting jump for me to feel like I have a team behind me supporting me to go further as a director.
"I'm truly looking forward to building on my aspirations of always pushing the boundaries of creativity, with a team so well versed in those worlds.”
