GUY MANWARING ARRIVES AT MERMAN.
1 November 2019

Merman are pleased to have landed director Guy Manwaring for both UK and US representation.

It's also a reunion as he joins forces with Siobhan Murphy who - like Manwaring - used to work at Therapy Films. Add newly appointed joint MD Spencer Dodd into the mix and it's clear to see Merman are on the front foot.

It's something Manwaring is glad to be part of: "The industry is changing so rapidly, and the range of output that Merman's producing is really impressive.

"It's unique to have a creative force like Sharon Horgan at the centre of a production company, and the opportunities that this attracts for the company and the directors on their roster is exciting."


With a commercial for adam&eveDDB already in the works, Manwaring is quickly repaying Siobhan Murphy's faith in him: "Guy has the ability and desire to work across all the platforms we offer as a company. He's just booked his first job… and I'm sure it will be the first of many."


Not only is Guy one of the nicest men you’re likely to meet, he’s super-talented with a proven track record at the highest level.

 ”

Spencer Dodd shares her confidence, saying: "I'm thrilled that Guy has decided to join Merman. He has an infectious enthusiasm and excitement that he brings to all his work from visual storytelling to comedy. Not only is he one of the nicest men you're likely to meet, he's super-talented with a proven track record at the highest level."
