Pictures in Los Angeles to give its roster of directors greater

cross-Atlantic opportunities.



The deal will give Godman’s roster of ten directors full representation

in the US while Palomar’s directors will be represented in the UK by

Godman.



Palomar is a leading US production company with offices in LA and

representation in New York and the mid-West of America. Its roster of

directors includes Melodie McDaniel, Breck Eisner and Nicholas Brandt,

who have made commercials for clients including Budweiser, Coca-Cola,

Nike and Miller Genuine Draft.



It has also made music videos for artists including Michael Jackson,

Madonna, Tina Turner and Whitney Houston.



Palomar was set up in 1992 by Jonathon Ker, the former head of TV at

Bartle Bogle Hegarty. Ker runs the company alongside Joni Sighvatsson,

who joined Palomar last year from Propaganda Films.



Godman’s directors include Vaughan Arnell and Howard Greenhalgh, who

last year directed commercials for clients including Orange, Ikea, The

Sunday Times and Bacardi.



Godman’s managing director, Jo Godman, said: ’We have been in

discussions with numerous people in America over the past three years

but have never found the perfect relationship. We started talking with

Jonathon about six months ago and I know that we speak the same

language.’
