Bullet, the film company launched five months ago by Pete Chambers,

an ex-partner at Partizan Midi-Minuit, has opened a commercials

production arm, headed by Fiona Campbell.



The project’s first new signing is Mike Lipscombe, the second director

to exit Tony Kaye Films this month. Lipscombe is best known for his

music videos, including work for Tori Amos, Babylon Zoo and this

summer’s ambitious promo for Jamiroquai’s Deeper Underground which

featured on the Godzilla film soundtrack.



His commercials work includes two 60-second spots for Euro RSCG Wnek

Gosper promoting the merger of Abbey National and National & Provincial

in 1996, and a Blockbuster ad through TBWA GGT Simons Palmer. They were

produced by Stark Films and the Artists Company respectively.



Campbell was head of television at Woollams Moira Gaskin O’Malley and

then Banks Hoggins O’Shea, which she left in February 1997 to go

freelance.



She said: ’I share Pete’s vision at Bullet. We don’t want to classify

ourselves as one type of company - we want to do commercials, promos,

television, short films and feature films. All the people here have a

great knowledge and enthusiasm for film.’



Lipscombe joins David Slade, Max & Dania, Jamie Morgan and Mark Humphrey

on Bullet’s commercials roster.
