Peter Harrison has signed four directors to his new production

company, Frontier, including a top director from his old company,

BFCS.



Grey Lipley, the special effects specialist, joins from BFCS where he

worked with clients including Domestos, Honda and Mazda. He was recently

appointed as design consultant to the Millennium Dome. The other

directors to join Frontier are Maxine Tabak, Philip Lihou and Michael

Abel.



Harrison said: ’The company has grown more rapidly than even I’d

expected since we first opened our doors, but that’s a reflection of the

kind of talent that has expressed an interest in joining us.’



Tabak joins after closing down her business, Darling Films. She launched

her career as a director ten years ago after working as a producer for

Howard Guard. She is best known for her work for Lanson Champagne and

The Independent.



Lihou and Abel join Frontier from Ferocious Films with their producer,

Caroline Von Luthje. Lihou began his career as an editor before moving

into directing, and has worked on the video for Aqua’s Turn Back Time

(the theme tune for Sliding Doors) and a commercial for Oxy skincare

products.



Abel began his career ten years ago at Lambie-Nairn before working

freelance for three years. He then joined the Moving Picture Company in

1994. He is best known for his Hamlet cigar ’hangman’ spot for CDP.



Harrison quit BFCS last September after disagreements with its

management.



He opened Frontier in January with five directors including Catherine

Ellis, who followed from BFCS.
