After film school Georgi worked with the BBC making promos and then all around the world with CNN. She has directed campaigns for such brands as Coca Cola, Nike, O2, AT&T, Swiss Air and Tourism Ireland for which she has won awards at Creative Circle, Epica, Clios and the One Show. Her evocative short film Penny Collectors won at the Barcelona Film Festival and Theo, her compelling and filmic 3-minute documentary was nominated at the Promax UK awards.
Georgi is passionate about cars and cities and football and has been making films about them since she was a kid. She has worked all over the world and is now looking forward to focusing on the UK and US markets. Through her new partnership with Skunk, Georgi hopes to propel and nurture her career in advertising and film-making, build enduring relationships and create even more exciting work.
“As a Leicester fan I couldn't have asked for a better year…” says Georgi. “Won the league then landed a place on the roster of a dream company I massively admire. Excited for the next season!”
Kate Taylor, Skunk’s London MD says “I’m delighted to welcome Georgi to the roster. She is completely dedicated to her craft with a reel that displays an evolution of work that just keeps improving, especially with the latest addition of her exceptional LTH “Energy” film. She clearly has the makings of a truly great film-maker and is nuts about photography, which pleases me no end. I can’t wait to work with her.”
Otis Bell of OB Management says ‘We’ve been admirers of Georgi’s work for a while and now feels like the perfect time for her to collaborate with the emerging force that is Skunk London. Her cinematic and emotive film craft is in great company with Skunk’s stable of directors. I couldn’t think of a better home for her!”.
Georgi, along with Skunk London’s directorial roster, will be presented by OB Management for commercials and music videos.
