Ehsan B Signs to SKUNK
Ehsan B joins the expanding roster for representation both here and in the US. Ehsan’s work is distinguished by his edgy narrative ideas and sophisticated cinematography; whether for high-end luxury brands, glossy fashion films, fast-paced car commercials or experimental imagery through music videos.
“I wanted to find a long-term home with a team I admire and connect with professionally and personally…” says Ehsan B on how the relationship began, “Soon after entering the road-block SKUNK party in Cannes I met Kate and Matt and knew instantly I wanted to be part of their gang. They just got me. A week after signing we pitched and won our first spot together for Adidas - an auspicious start.”
Ehsan’s slick, stylised aesthetic has been commissioned by an array of premium brands such as Samsung, Hugo Boss, Adidas, Burberry and YSL. His unique understanding of, and personal obsession with cars is expertly displayed in his polished and dramatic spots for the likes of BMW, Porsche, Jaguar and Nissan.
Nominated for the YDA at Cannes Lions, La Jolla and the Music and Sound Awards and credited at other prestigious film making ceremonies such as Le Book, VOGUE NYFW Film Festival and Berlin Fashion Film Awards, Ehsan’s career has come a long way. Degrees in architecture and graphic design led to working as an agency creative and pitching multi-format TV treatments, shooting fashion films and setting up and running an international boutique creative agency - bridging the gap between fashion and luxury, film and digital. Ehsan B is supremely qualified and passionate about directing.
Kate Taylor, SKUNK London MD says “All of the Directors on our roster represent something unique and special. Matt and I immediately felt this about Ehsan. The slightly eclectic nature of his reel; high end fashion, next to forensic car work is unusual and implies a unique insight. It’s an exciting prospect, working with someone who is brimming over with ideas, energy and passion, Ehsan has all of those in spades.”
Otis Bell of OB Management who represent London’s full directorial roster, says "The addition of Ehsan to SKUNK’s roster is certainly reflective of their growing presence in the UK. Again, an inventive film maker but with a more abstract and stylized approach to storytelling. We love the immaculate attention to detail that he delivers in such a glorious, highly photographic approach”
When not shooting awesome commercials or developing film projects, Ehsan B can be found in his garage tinkering with classic cars, exploring the world with his funky old Fuji camera, trawling through vinyls to spin at one of his resident DJ spots and now in Soho at the SKUNK London HQ.
