Barney Cokeliss in Home Corp signing

The commercials director Barney Cokeliss has joined Home Corp after the closure of his previous production company, Godman.

At Home Corp, he joins a roster of directors that includes Howard Greenhalgh, Lucy Blakstad, Jason Smith, Sara Dunlop and Sue Worthy.

Cokeliss' reel includes a number of visual spots for brands including Epson, Volkswagen Polo, Morrison's and NHS Scotland.

The Home Corp managing director, Emily Bliss, said: "Barney is a formidable talent. Not only is his work incredibly cinematic, but his story-telling abilities are exceptional. He complements our roster perfectly and his creative ambitions match ours."

Cokeliss added: "I'm really excited to be joining Home Corp. It's a young company with great energy and a really stimulating bunch of intelligent, young people."

Cokeliss began his career with two short films - Tea and Queen's Park Story - which were named Best of the Fest at the Edinburgh Film Festival in 1998 and 1999. He is currently working on a Lexus film for Dentsu Canada and an Adult Literacy campaign for The Bridge in Glasgow.

Home Corp was founded in May 2005, after Bliss and her joint managing director at Brave Films, Michelle Stapleton, parted company.

Godman closed in March after ten years, citing pressure on prices and margins.
