Senior commercials director David Rittey departs Exit Films to join AIRBAG's roster of directors

AIRBAG has today announced the addition of senior commercials director David Rittey, formerly of Exit Films, to its roster.
 
Rittey is currently completing a campaign for Edith Cowan University via 303 MullenLowe Perth, and his reel includes work for some of the world's top brands, including AMP, Medibank, Dettol, Berri, Sanitarium, The Red Cross and Moccona. Rittey merges beautifully crafted cinematic imagery with documentary filmmaking techniques, and authentic performances from both actors and non-actors.


Rittey graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2000 where he managed to achieve every film student's dream - having his graduate piece selected for the Academy Awards as well as numerous other festivals on the international circuit. His short film 'Closer' also went on to achieve international success, nominated for the Palm d'Or at the 57th Cannes Film Festival.
 
His skills were honed in New Zealand, before returning to Australia in 2008 where he continued building on his impressive body of work.
 
Says Rittey: "I've always admired AIRBAG's energy and modern production model. It feels like a really positive next step for me and I'm looking forward to applying my interest in visually engaging storytelling to craft filmic TVCs, as well as some of the new mediums they're exploring."
 
Says Adrian Bosich, managing partner, AIRBAG: "David has a beautiful eye, elicits touching performances, and has enough ego to have a vision, without being a diva. We are extremely excited to have David, and his talent for storytelling, join us at AIRBAG."
