Director Martin Stirling Signs to Partizan
Partizan has announced today the signing of award-winning director Martin Stirling.
Martin Stirling emerged from the world of short films and commercials with works that are playful and provocative. His Save The Children spot reached over 25 million views in the first week alone and won a Cannes Gold Lion. Martin was also behind the controversial Mos Def force feeding viral which totalled more than 9 million views online.
His subversive storytelling continued with another viral hit LEGO: Everything is NOT Awesome which was banned in the first 24 hours - after accumulating 6 million views it made history by ending the 50 year relationship between LEGO and Shell. With a string of hits this year he has been selected as one of Shots' Best New Directors.
Martin blends his strong understanding of audiences and storytelling with emerging technologies and innovations. He has conceived and directed interactive, digital and TV campaigns for some of the worlds biggest brands.
As an artist Martin's work has been exhibited in the MoMa in NY, Detroit, Abbey Road and all over the UK. He is currently developing his debut feature.
