NEWS: Big TV quit Spots to join Tarsem at start-up

The directing duo, Big TV, have left Spots Films after 18 months to join the new production company venture, @radical.media (Campaign, last week).

The directing duo, Big TV, have left Spots Films after 18 months to join

the new production company venture, @radical.media (Campaign, last

week).



The move will reunite the pair with the commercials director, Tarsem and

Dominic Delaney, their former producer at Spots.



Delaney left Spots last week to start up the UK office of

@radical.media, the expanding US production company, with the other ex-

Spots producers, Adam Lyne and Tommy Turtle.



Before joining Spots, Big TV’s Andy Delaney, who is unrelated to

Dominic, and Monty Whitebloom worked out of Tony Kaye Films.



The pair launched their commercials careers with US ads for Nike through

Wieden and Kennedy, Levi’s through Foote Cone Belding, and Reebok

through Leo Burnett in Chicago.



But it was while they were at Spots that they proved their worth as

high-profile UK directors with recent films for the Financial Times

through Delaney Fletcher Bozell and First Direct through WCRS. The pair

were unable to talk to Campaign because they are currently filming in

Kenya.



Dominic Delaney commented: ‘We are all really pleased at @radical.media

that Big TV have decided to come and join us. I’ve worked very closely

with them over the last year and seen them create some outstanding

commercials. I look forward to this continuing at @radical.media.’



Although @radical.media’s headquarters are in the US, Big TV will only

be represented by the company in the UK.



The Spots Films founding director, Barry Myers, declined to comment on

the duo’s decision to leave.



Big TV are represented by the production company, Palomar, in the US.
