Andy McClean and Bruce Macrae are teaming up to launch a new

production company called Zed Films.



McClean has been a producer at the Paul Weiland Film Company for more

than ten years and is the former head of television at Lowe

International, while Macrae is the former head of television at D’Ar

cy.



Zed Films opens its doors with a six-strong roster of directors

including Daryl Goodrich, who directed the recent Southern Comfort

commercials for D’Arcy, David Anderson, who has worked on Eurostar and

the Terence Higgins Trust through Little Bird Productions and Agust

Balursson, responsible for the VW Bora commercial.



’We want to do great work but also have some fun doing it,’ McClean

said.



’Bruce and I have worked with a huge range of directors and I think

there is a very healthy atmosphere. The posture and arrogance has gone

out of production companies and you can now work with good guys in a

pleasant way.’



Macrae spent three years as head of television at D’Arcy but left in

October 1997 to join the top Irish production company, Little Bird.



However, he left the company last year when it decided to focus on films

rather than commercials. Macrae then joined McClean who had set up a

services company.
