Mark Stothert quits John S Clarke to run Infinity Productions

Mark Stothert, the producer who founded John S Clarke Productions

18 years ago, has left the production house to set up Infinity


Infinity opens its doors with three directors, Tom Hooper, Simon Hunter

and Larry Smith, who are now shooting nine commercials.

Stothert will develop the careers of the three directors and is looking

for other directors to complete Infinity's line-up.

Hooper, who directed the ITV drama Cold Feet and the BBC period drama

Love in a Cold Climate, has directed commercials including BT's

e-business campaign for M&C Saatchi and the Tunes 'Quasimodo' spot for

Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO. His first work for Infinity is the latest

McDonald's campaign starring John Fortune.

Hunter, who was selected for Saatchi & Saatchi's New Directors Showcase

at Cannes last year, has shot several ntl commercials through J. Walter

Thompson and a Post Bank commercial through BBDO. His feature film,

Lighthouse, is released this summer.

Smith, a director of photography who has worked on films including Eyes

Wide Shut, hopes to build his commercials output.

Stothert said: 'Tom is a young but very experienced director. He

concentrates on performance and light comedy. Simon Hunter is great with

special effects and at building pace and tension. Larry Smith is known

for his poetic, beautiful imagery.'
