Independent Films to sign Noam Murro to its director roster

The director Noam Murro, who recently won a gold Cannes Lion for his "sheet metal" ad for the US car brand Saturn through Goodby Silverstein & Partners, has been signed by Independent Films.

Independent Films will represent Murro in the UK and a number of selected European countries. Murro, who has also picked up a Cannes gold for Tango "helmet" for Clemmow Hornby Inge, was previously represented by MJZ London in the UK.

The US-based Murro formed Biscuit Filmworks in 2000 with the partner and producer Shawn Tessaro, who is set to join Murro for his UK projects.

"Noam and I are excited about working with Independent in London, their team is a strong marketing partner for us in Europe," Tessaro said.

Independent Films came into being last April when the production company Propaganda/Satellite Films changed its name in the UK to distance itself from its US parent, which folded in late 2001.
