Spindle sign Mar del Corral
Promonews - 18th Jan 2024
Mar del Corral, director of acclaimed music videos, including the Ciclope-honoured video for Surma's For Hemma, and brand work for Adidas, Lancôme, Dove, Braun, Pantene and Freda, has joined the roster at Spindle for UK representation for commercial and music projects.
Born in the Caribbean, raised in Spain and graduating the London Metropolitan University with a degree in Fine Arts, del Corrall is a globetrotter with a love for visual imagery. She is also informed by her background as an actor, with a passion for honest storytelling and a desire to use her films as a platform for positive change. She champions inclusivity and empowerment, inspiring talent to boldly shine on screen through authentic, impactful performances.
Her latest work for Adidas x Common Goal is a charity-focused campaign that drives social change for underserved communities. It follows real children and highlights how important community programs are to empower girls in football. This project follows a previous Adidas global campaign for the UEFA Women’s Champions League, where she captured the real-life bond between football legend Alessandro del Piero and his daughter Dorothea.
Alongside various campaigns for beauty brands including Lancôme, Dove, Braun & Pantene, Mar del Corral has also created a powerful spot for Freda in support of Freda’s inclusive period range. In Cycle we meet three LGBTQ+ advocates, discussing how gender inclusive language can make a big impact for people feeling safe and accepted in the world. The film was recognised in the Shiny Awards winners list amongst other industry acclaim.
Her music videos are equally impactful. Most notably, Surma's For Hemma integrates dynamic camera work into electric choreography, resulting in an emotional, intense experience that received a Vimeo Staff Pick and Ciclope award.
"I am delighted to welcome Mar to the Spindle family," says Mayling Wong, Spindle Executive Producer. "What caught my eye with Mar’s unique ability to take us on a journey is her approach with talent, allowing them to flourish in their surroundings. Her sense of empathy combined with her level of care and attention to detail is what makes her visual language so relatable and inspiring. She delicately walks the line of ‘reality’ embedded in heightened elevation and
that (amongst many other things!) excites me for our future of filmmaking together."
On signing to Spindle, Mar del Corral adds: "Spindle is a production company that resonates deeply with my own values and aspirations. From the moment I encountered them, I was captivated by their visionary approach and the palpable passion that drives them. What truly sets Spindle apart is their steadfast commitment to moral values too, a principle that echoes my own approach to work and creativity. We share an ambitious spirit that seeks not just to create, but to grow and inspire. I look forward to contributing to Spindle's journey of creating exceptional work that not only entertains but also carries a significant message. I am eager to see the incredible things we will achieve together."
