Mark Denton set to take up partnership with Therapy Films

Mark Denton, the director best known for his comedy commercials, has left Blink Productions to be a partner at Therapy Films.

Denton will have an undisclosed amount of equity in the company and will be one of three partners.

Daniel Todd, the managing director of Therapy Films, said: "I pursued Mark when he was at Godman, and have always admired his work and wanted to work with him. I hope his career continues to flourish at Therapy."

Denton's recent directorial credits have included the new COI Communications tax credit work by M&C Saatchi and a Publicis spot for Renault Clio. Last year, he directed a campaign for Clarks Shoes through St Luke's using the "new shoes?" strapline, as well as a Wrigley's Orbit commercial for Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO.

Denton began his career as a creative, meeting Chris Palmer, his partner and the future founder of Gorgeous Enterprises, at Bartle Bogle Hegarty. In 1986 they moved to Lowe Howard-Spink.

In 1988 Denton and Palmer became two of the founders of Simons Palmer Denton Clemmow & Johnson, before leaving under acrimonious circumstances in February 1994.

The two then joined Redwing Films, initially working as a duo under the alias Bert Sprote.

Denton joined Godman in 1997 and directed commercials for clients including Royal Mail and Thomas Cook before leaving to join Blink in January 1999.
