Sam Miller, the lead director of the hit BBC2 series, This Life, has

left James Garrett Productions to join the Directory. Miller signed up

with Garretts in May 1997 but his only commercial to date, Standard

Life’s ’talking baby’ for the Leith Agency, was produced by the

Directory’s Scottish sister company, MTP.



Union Commercials has signed up Gareth Roberts from BFCS. His

commercials reel includes work for the Times and Sunday Times, Pioneer,

Foster’s and the Welsh Tourist Board. Mike Barker, a documentary and

features director, will also join Union Commercials from Rose Hackney

Barber.



BFCS has also lost Keith Rogerson, who has just shot a new Birds Custard

spot for Ogilvy & Mather. Rogerson joins TTO2 along with Patrick

Harkins, who is new to commercials but has worked extensively with Mike

Leigh.



Jamie Lane, who directed a Cherry Coke cinema ad through Publicis

featuring the new Chanel girl, Erin O’Connor, has left Partizan to join

Lambie-Nairn Directors. Lane said: ’I am lucky to have learnt my trade

watching Michel Gondry and David Mold.’



Will van der Vlugt Films has taken on two new Belgian directors:

Jean-Marc Vervoort, who was on the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors

Showcase last year, and Anne-Marie Vandeputte, who has done work for

McDonald’s, Lucky Strike and Winfield. Karen Cappetta, a director’s

representative, has also joined the company. She will concentrate on the
