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
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.
