U.S. and London-based production company Park Pictures has signed director Georgia Hudson for representation in the U.S., UK and Netherlands, for commercials, branded content and music videos. Georgia grew up in London and attended Camberwell Art School. Here she fell in love with the moving image, making 16mm performance art films. After graduating, she started working in fashion, art directing runway shows and making short fashion promos. Head-hunted by i-D magazine, she went on to write and make documentaries and art films for them.
Hudson’s films have a cinematic elegance that celebrates the human form, heightening our connection to her subjects’ stories through riveting movement and dynamic camera perspectives. Georgia’s soulful work embodies her passion for music and dance and its ability to express human emotion in ways words cannot.
Georgia has directed projects for brands such as Under Armour and Dick’s Sporting Goods with her unique visual intensity. She has made highly stylized videos for leading artists including P!nk, Loyle Carner and Glass Animals. These gained wins and nominations in multiple categories at MTV, Ibiza VMAs, Berlin MVA, UKMVA and MOBO awards. After the premiere of her P!nk music video “What About Us,” Hudson was nominated for Best Director by the 2017 UK MVAs.

Park Pictures Executive Producer Jackie Kelman Bisbee states, “Every once in a while, you see an emerging director’s work and know you’ve seen the next generation of exceptional talent. Georgia Hudson is that director for us. Her meticulous attention to choreography and camera movement creates powerful and dramatic films. She applies her bold and poetic style to everything she touches, whether it be music videos, commercials or short films. We are thrilled to have Georgia as part of the Park family.”
Adds Hudson, “Not only is Park Pictures owned and run by one of the most charismatic and motivated women that you could meet, they have an insanely good roster of directors who make authentic and soulful work that holds impact and gravity. It is absolutely wild to be able to join that tribe and be a part of the artistic diversity and freshness that, as a company, Park has always naturally sustained. More than anything, I love that Park Pictures has a long history of creating meaningful and conscientious moving image. This company shone out to me as the place to go to have your creativity protected and projected by a group of incredibly experienced EP’s, sales reps and individuals.”
London EP/ MD Stephen Brierley concludes, “Georgia’s background in art and fashion cuts into all her work, which is beautiful and aesthetically dynamic, creating a strong emotional connection with audiences. She has a great future ahead and we are delighted that she has chosen to join us at Park.
Hudson is currently directing the short film Temper, an arts documentary investigating youth culture and grief, slated for release in 2018.
