Jane Fuller Associates has signed a deal with the music video

company, Oil Factory, to represent eight of its directors for

commercials work in the UK and Europe.



The list of directors is: Jamie Thraves, Dom & Nick, Wiz, Sophie Muller,

Jonas Akerlund, Thomas Napper, John Hillcoat and Karen Lamond.



Thraves was named as a Hotshot director by Campaign last year, and he

won a D&AD pencil for his pop video for Radiohead’s Just. He is the only

one of the directors with commercials experience, having made spots for

Heineken, Shellys Shoes and the Big Issue.



The new names have made videos for acts including Marilyn Manson, the

Manic Street Preachers, Jamiroquai (Wiz); Blur, No Doubt, Gary Barlow

(Muller); Prodigy (Akerlund); and Texas and Garbage (Lamond).



Oil Factory set up a commercials production arm, Oil Factory Films, in

July 1996, under Steve Dell. The venture will be superseded by the

Fuller deal.
