FRIEND Signs Director Rafael Lopez to their Roster

Production company FRIEND have signed Rafael Lopez to their director roster. Rafael started out directing in his native Argentina, before moving to the UK.

Since then, he has gone on to create clever comedy and performance-driven work with agency powerhouses Mother, BBH and many more. He has worked with major brands such as Coca Cola, Nike, Lynx, Mentos and PG Tips.
Rafael is looking to strengthen his already formidable reputation as a member of FRIEND’s director team. A former aspiring actor, Rafa’s eye for casting and meticulous approach to casting shine through in his work.

Luke Jacobs, Managing Director/EP at Friend, says: “It’s not every day you find comedy directors of Rafa’s calibre. He combines effortless storytelling with a great eye for performance. He’s worked extensively in the UK and has quite the track record over here.”

Rafael said: “FRIEND feels like the right place for the next step in my career, and I’m excited to get cracking with them in London”
