Pulse Films & Iconoclast Announce Strategic Partnership in UK & France
Following the recent success of their office launches in the US and Germany, Paris-based production company Iconoclast today announces its official launch in the UK with Pulse Films.
The new strategic partnership formed with production company and talent house, Pulse Films, will represent a selection of directors – across both companies - in the UK and in France. The partnership will see Iconoclast launch their own individual hero roster of award-winning directors into the UK market, and will be housed within Pulse’s headquarters in London.
Iconoclast’s expansion into the UK will begin with a project from 101 for GAME directed by SO ME.
“Iconoclast is extremely excited to be officially open to the UK market, and we are looking forward to working closely with some of the most creative agencies in the world. We feel that this is the right time for our directors to benefit from a standalone outfit and are pleased to have the support from such a forward thinking company as Pulse Films” – Nicolas Lhermitte and Mourad Belkeddar, Founders, Iconoclast.
Iconoclast will serve a selected roster of Pulse Films directors in France from their Paris HQ.
Candice Chubb has been appointed executive producer of UK operations, covered until January 2015 by EP Anna Smith. Candice will be responsible for representing Iconoclast’s roster in the UK across commercials and branded content.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with our friends at Iconoclast in a way that will expand the reach of our directors in France, and at the same time help build their presence here in the UK. Pulse shares a genuine affinity with Iconoclast and so working together in this way feels very natural, and tremendously exciting” – Marisa Clifford, Managing Director of Commercials & Music Videos, Pulse Films.
