Richard Phillips has revamped his production company, RJ Phillips &

Co, by taking on three new directors - his first signings for more than

two years.



The new additions to Phillips’ roster are Metin Huseyin, Philippa

Lowthorpe and Richard Tindall. Marc Munden, who has been Phillips’ only

other director for the past two years, is at present filming Vanity Fair

for the BBC.



Phillips said: ’The expansion is part planning and part whim.’



Huseyin and Lowthorpe are both television directors, and were sought out

by Phillips after he saw their recent work. Huseyin directed the BBC’s

adaptation of Tom Jones and has also directed two Alexei Sayle series

and Diary of a Teenage Health Freak.



’I started working in animation, which got me used to telling a story

quickly, and comedy sketches also gave me experience in short formats,’

Huseyin said.



Lowthorpe recently wrote, produced and directed a television documentary

called Eight Hours from Crewe.



Tindall was nominated as best new director at the British Television

Advertising Craft Awards for a Club 18-30 spot which he directed through

And Howe. He started his career as a cameraman, working on films

including Cry Freedom and Gorillas in the Mist. ’Commercials lack cinema

- I want to apply a feature-film feel to ads,’ he said.
