The Pink Film Company, set up three months ago by the former Jennie
managing director, Karen Cunningham, and Redwing’s former head of
production, Bash Robertson, has hired the fashionable commercials
directing duo, the New Renaissance.
Their signing, from Paul Weiland Films, marks Cunningham’s second
attempt to procure their talents. She previously offered them a place on
Rose Hackney Barber’s roster, where she was head of production until
The New Renaissance brings an eclectic mix of distinctive fashion
design, art direction and film-makingc to the nascent production
The new team, Harvey Bertram-Brown and Carolyn Corben, went into
business six years ago. Their art directing talents have already been
used by Bartle Bogle Hegarty for a You magazine cover and in a Sprite
press ad through Lowe Howard-Spink.
The team justified their move to Pink after such a short time at
Weilands by citing the hands-on nature of the smaller company.
