Chirolles Khalil, the director of critically acclaimed videos for Preditah ft WSTRN and Tokio Myers ft Akala, and the recently released video for Rudimental featuring Morgan and Tike, has joined the music video director's roster at FRIEND.

Khalil joins the London-based production company with a growing reputation for his strong narrative style, and sense of energy. Originally from Egypt, raised in Milan and now based in London, he jumped into directing after studying at Central Saint Martins.

"I’ve been talking to Chiro for over a year now, and am excited to finally say he’s a part of the FRIEND family," says Luke Tierney, head of music at FRIEND. "We were instantly impressed after seeing his Tokio Myers video and once I got to see him on set for Preditah, I knew he was a good fit for us and us for him."
