Motherland Signs Director Ben Reed

Motherland, the hybrid creative production company and true post facility, is proud to announce the addition of Welsh director Ben Reed to its roster. 

He has directed commercials for notable clients like T-Mobile, Pizza Hut and Ikea. His deadpan, absurdist humour is a hallmark of his work, which also features intricate builds and clean set design. Ben is also very comfortable in the visual effects world and blends VFX effortlessly with live action. 

Reed made a name for himself with his visually stunning music videos for top artists such as Blur, Michael Kiwanuka, and George Ezra. 

He has also recently made waves in the film industry with his debut documentary feature, Portrait of Kaye, which premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest in 2021 and won the Special Jury Award in the UK Competition. The film was later nominated for a BAFTA Cymru in 2022.

"We are thrilled to have Ben join our roster of talented directors," said Mags Levingstone, head of production at Motherland. "His unique style, quirkiness and attention to detail are a perfect fit for Motherland, and we look forward to collaborating with him on many exciting projects in the future."

Motherland is best known internationally for its emotive storytelling and award-winning commercials and films. In Ireland it has worked with the biggest agencies in the country. Motherland have recently produced the IFTA (Irish Film & Television Academy) nominated feature documentary, Love Yourself Today, which screened in theatres across the UK and Ireland last year. 

They also represent a host of international directing talent, such as Rachel Carey (‘Deadly Cuts’, The highest grossing Irish film of 2021), Kathryn Ferguson (‘Nothing Compares’), commercial directors Finn Keenan (Lionsgate, Just Eat, Discord and Nike) and POB (Sky, Allianz and Jameson) along with emerging talents like Sam McGrath, Hugh Mulhern, Ellius Grace and Tara O’Callaghan.
