Park Village welcomes Joel Jay Blacker

Promonews - 5th Apr 2022

LA-based comedy director and writer Joel Jay Blacker has joined Park Village in the UK for commercial and music video representation.

Originally from the UK, Joel's work includes the the Facebook comedy series Airport Security Squad, starring Anwar Jibawi; Who You Are, which premiered at SXSW, and music videos for How It Goes and Dinner And A Movie, both for Keenan The First, that bridge genre-bending comedy with rap visuals.

"I’m delighted Joel and his award-winning talent for comedy has joined the Park Village roster," says Leonie Ellis, EP & Business Development at Park Village. "I first spotted his work judging the impeccably crafted and tonally strong How It Goes promo where he nailed blending comedy with bang on 50’s art direction and clever camera work to tell the story. His series work, commercial and long form directing skills fits perfectly with Park Village‘s multi media output and we can’t wait to get cracking with him."

Joel adds: "I’ve always been looking for a way back to England with my work and I’m excited to do that in partnership with Park Village. We share a mutual love for the weird and zany, and so it feels like coming home to open arms.

"I’ve not met producers who better understand my work and my voice as a director than those at Park Village. With their established history in the UK, I’m looking forward to riding their coattails and together we’ll have some fun... they also said I could crash in their studio which was awfully generous!"
