Ghanaian-British director, writer, and executive producer Koby Adom has signed to the Ridley Scott Creative Group’s RSA Films for UK representation.
Best known for his work on Top Boy and Noughts + Crosses, Koby has worked extensively across TV and film. In 2019, Koby founded London-based DBK Studios to make film and TV content for untold stories, especially for black and diverse narratives. The studio has since partnered with Sky Studios for a series of short films aimed at developing the representation of the Black community, empowering up and coming creatives to tell their stories from an authentic perspective. The five-part series of standalone short films shared a common theme of hard-hitting yet relatable stories. They aired on Sky Arts and are currently streaming on Now TV.
After graduating with a master’s degree from the London Film School in 2017, Koby wrote and directed his breakthrough short film, Haircut. Haircut screened at the London Film Festival and was viewed over 900,000 times online, earning Koby a spot on the 2018 Screen Daily Stars of Tomorrow list and the Broadcast Hotshot list for 2019. By November 2018, Koby was in Cape Town preparing to shoot three episodes of BBC One drama Noughts + Crosses at the age of 28.
“Under the Ridley Scott Creative Group, we can facilitate Koby’s ambition in film, music video, commercial, branded, and documentary projects. Koby is such a special talent, there are so many exciting storytelling possibilities for us to explore together” Kai Hsiung, head of RSA Films.
"Every great story begins with a bold move, and I am thrilled to take the leap with RSA. I am incredibly excited to join them as a director for commercials and music videos, and to collaborate with some of the most talented minds in the industry. I look forward to crafting visually stunning and impactful stories that resonate with audiences and clients alike. Together, we will tell stories that inspire and ignite change, one frame at a time" Koby Adom.
Koby is set to shoot his debut feature film ‘Jimmy’s Clipz’ based on his breakthrough short Haircut as well as writing, directing, and executive producing all six episodes of an original horror thriller series ‘House Girls’ commissioned for Sky Atlantic set in Accra, Ghana.
