Vaughan Arnell moves to Blink in ads return

Vaughan Arnell has signed with Blink Productions for commercials representation, and signalled that he wants to move away from directing music promos.

He arrives from Pagan Films, where he focused on music videos, including a string of promos for Robbie Williams. His recent commercials credits include "everyday chic" for Clarks through St Luke's and the Williams-fronted "web 'n' walk" for T- Mobile through Saatchi & Saatchi. His long-time producer, Emily Morgan, joins with him.

Arnell was previously a director at the now defunct production company Godman, where he directed the award-winning "creek" for Levi's, and "red shoes" and "the good Samaritan" for Stella Artois with his former co-director Anthea Benton. He began his career as a runner at the Gordon Lewis Organisation, before moving to Chase Films.

Arnell said: "I want to get my nose down and do great commercials. Blink is a rock-steady commercials company and James is the best in town."

The Blink managing director, James Studholme, said: "The express goal is to move the focus of his work back to advertising and see him return to the form that saw him build his legendary status."

He added: "I am very excited about getting him the kind of work that I feel he should be doing."
