ALEX & LIANE JOIN RIFF RAFF

Directing duo Alex & Liane have become the latest talent to join the roster at Riff Raff.

Since meeting as idealistic teenagers, Alex Large and Liane Sommers have built their reputation on dynamic music videos as well making some deft moves into the world of commercials. Splitting their time between London and Berlin, Riff Raff are very pleased to become the duo's UK home.


You wouldn't forget those faces in a hurry. Don't worry, we're sure their eyes won't be quite as probing in real life.


Phew! Anyway, friends since their teenage years, you say? That's right. They met at the tender age of 16, so they know what makes each other tick. Luckily for Riff Raff, they also know a thing or two about creating punchy, eye-catching work. Check out this commercial for Nike:




We like music and making pictures for music. That's why we make music videos.

 ”


Cracking - they sure know how to make visuals work with a tune, eh? Well, they're bound to having worked on promos for the likes of Hercules and Love Affair, Scissor Sisters, and Kylie Minogue, no less. Alex & Liane themselves say: "We like music and making pictures for music. That's why we make music videos."




Straight to the point - I like that. We do too. It sounds like they'll fit in well with Riff Raff's ethos as well. Matthew Fone says on their website: "I don’t want to do just commercials and videos with people... it’s all about ideas and doing whatever is a good idea."

Looks like the signing of Alex & Liane is another light bulb moment.

For more of this twosome's knack for audio-visual spectaculars, check out Alex & Liane's showreel or give the stellar Barney Richard a ring on 07557 092 029.
