PARK VILLAGE WELCOME IAN DERRY AND GOSHDAMN.
22 September 2022

Intrepid filmmaker Ian Derry and directing duo GoshDamn have joined Park Village for UK and European work. Both have been on managing partner Adam Booth's radar for a while, so he leapt at the chance to double his pleasure.

Before they get stuck in at Park Village HQ, let's see what makes Ian Derry and GoshDamn stand out from the crowd...


1. GoshDamn



Josh Lawson and Dan Vallint-Riggs (aka GoshDamn) say Park Village "understand the work we want to do, and the way in which we want to make it". Everyone's in a good mood at PV headquarters as a result, with directors' representative Savannah Seymour at peak hype.

"I'm so pleased to welcome the creative force that is GoshDamn to the Park Village family," Seymour says. "I can’t wait to begin showing off their reel, with such diverse work it’s going to be awesome to fanfare their arrival. I'm chuffed to be able to play a part building on the current enthusiasm around them."



2. Ian Derry



Renowned outdoorsman Ian Derry joins both Park Village's film and photography rosters, and says "stepping through that huge front door made me feel I was really a part of something special". He also reckons his stills would look good on the company's walls.

Needless to say, Adam Booth likes what he sees: "Be it a stills campaign or TV commercial, we're so stoked to explore the opportunities with this inordinately talented human and enjoy his great company and generosity on set."
