Biscuit Filmworks Signs Director Ruairi Robinson
Biscuit Filmworks has signed director Ruairi Robinson to its roster for commercial representation. Originally from Ireland, Robinson is an Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and writer best known for his effects-savvy films and viral short, "The Leviathan."
Robinson began his career as a visual effects artist, later putting his skills to good use on his original shorts including Academy Award-nominated "Fifty Percent Gray," in addition to "Blinky" and "The Silent City." In 2013 he made his feature film debut at the Cannes Film Festival with "The Last Days On Mars," a sci-fi thriller starring Liev Schreiber. In March 2015 his proof-of-concept trailer "The Leviathan" quickly went viral, garnering over one million YouTube views and earning distinction as a Vimeo Staff Pick. "The Leviathan," a futuristic retelling of "Moby Dick," is currently in development as a feature at Twentieth Century Fox with Neill Blomkamp and Simon Kinberg producing. In addition to his film work, Robinson has worked with top brands to create visually striking commercials, including Cadillac, Kia, The Observer, and more.
"My job, my hobby, and my very occasional days off all involve telling stories and imaging new worlds," commented Robinson. "I'm really excited to be joining the talented roster of directors at Biscuit, and look forward to creating some new worlds, and occasionally blowing them up."
Robinson is also repped by Spy Films in Canada, Henry De Czar in France, and Russell Curran in Ireland.
