Tony Kaye Films has signed two new directors to its roster as it
attempts to overhaul the company after the ousting of its previous
Eugenia Kaye, who took over the running of the company from David
Wardlaw, Graham Collis and Stephen Lepley, has signed Louis Ng and Tim
Brett Day, having parted company with two other directors - Mike
Lipscombe and Rupert Sanders - last month.
Ng, a former agency art director, founded his own production company,
the Film Factory, in Hong Kong. He has built up a reputation as one of
Asia’s best directors and will work only with a select few creatives in
Hong Kong. He directed Asia’s most award-winning ad of the year in 1996
(for the Hong Kong Bank through Bates Dorland) and works regularly on
big brands such as Hong Kong Telecom, Hang Seng, McDonald’s and Yellow
Pages. Ng was briefly represented in the UK by Challenge Productions in
1992, but has yet to break into the European market.
Brett Day is best known as a fashion and beauty photographer who works
for magazines and newspapers. He has recently begun directing pop promos
but hopes to move into commercials.
