Director Justyna Obasi Joins Park Pictures For U.K. Representation In Spots, Branded Content
Park Pictures has signed director Justyna Obasi for commercials and branded content in the U.K. market. This marks her first representation in the U.K. She continues to be represented by Anorak in Germany.
To date, Obasi has created films for Ahoj Brause, Friedberg and Bioré. Both a visual artist and performance director by training, Obasi studied at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in Beaconsfield, U.K. Her vision combines a vivid display of color and texture with a sensitive eye for casting that results in unfiltered and authentic on-screen performances.
Obasi grew up in multiple countries around the world and now lives in Berlin where she is currently developing her feature film debut. Stephen Brierley, managing director of Park Pictures London, said of Obasi, “We were immediately struck by her level of talent the moment we saw her films. She has a great future ahead of her and we are privileged to be a part of it.”
Obasi shared, “Being represented by this extraordinary group of involved and sensitive people makes me extremely proud and excited. It allows me to embrace my vulnerability as a director which I feel is crucial to my work. As a woman of color, it’s important to me to work with people who understand my identity, my aspirations and provide strength and foundation to support me navigating the industry. I am genuinely happy to collaborate with Park Pictures in the U.K. which I believe will have an incredible impact on my growth as a filmmaker.”
