Pat Holden, an art director at Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe, has quit to

become a commercials director with Blink Productions. He will be

produced by Stephen Gash, the former executive producer at Lambie-Nairn.



Holden has already made an anti-boxing commercial for the British

Medical Association through DMB&B and is currently working on a project

for Saatchi and Saatchi.



During only nine months at Rainey Kelly, he and his partner, Gary

Monaghan, created campaigns for most of the agency’s clients, including

Virgin, VH-1, and Scottish Courage. Holden’s last work for the agency

was the launch campaign for Emap’s new magazine, Minx, which goes on air

next week (story, p7).



Saatchi and Saatchi included Holden in its new directors showcase last

year for a film called Ted was Easy to Beat up. His debut was a

documentary about the 1992 Berlin Love Parade, which he persuaded

Marlboro to fund. Other projects, called Madly in Love and Must be a

Good Dancer - both self-funded - were shown on ITV.



Holden started out as a paste-up artist before landing a job with TBWA

in 1988.



He said: ‘There was no better place to work than at Rainey Kelly while I

was deciding about my future, but I have always been involved in films

in my spare time, and I had to make the move.’
