25 June 2018

Directing duo Tu & Nick and filmmaker Thibaut Grevet are the latest to join Knucklehead's UK roster for commercial representation.

While New Zealanders Tu & Nick have made a name for themselves as globe-trotting documentary makers, Thibaut Grevet has established himself as a well-renowned director both in his native France and internationally.

Read on for more on Knucklehead's newest recruits…


1. Tu & Nick



In spite of the World Health Organisation's recent concerns, Tuataroa Neill and Nick Dwyer a.k.a. Tu & Nick are living proof that video games have their merits. The pair threw themselves into the world of video game music for Red Bull's ‘Diggin' in the Carts' - an online series profiling some of the medium's most influential composers.


The duo's exhaustive research and nimble shooting style allowed them to grill industry greats such as Hirokazu Tanaka (Tetris, Metroid) and Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy). Gaming scholars, music lovers, and square-eyed veterans alike latched onto the series, giving Tu & Nick the confidence to pursue more ambitious projects.


2. Thibaut Grevet



As for Thibaut Grevet, the Frenchman has already made waves on Knucklehead's US roster; now he's ready to do the same over here. Heavily inspired by BMX culture, motorsport, and other competitive pursuits, Grevet has shot of variety of TVCs and short films charting life in motion - including this profile of photographer and motorcyclist Dimitri Coste.


Grevet's refined aesthetic and intrepid attitude can be found throughout his reel, with brands increasingly keen to bring him on board. Naturally, Knucklehead are keen to match Grevet with UK advertisers seeking a more cultured outcome.
