PARK PICTURES HAVE GEORGIA HUDSON ON THEIR MIND.
1 March 2018

Park Pictures' Jackie Kelman Bisbee describes Georgia Hudson - the company's latest signing - as one of those directors whose work is so exciting that "know you've seen the next generation of exceptional talent."

Hudson, who was one of the nominees for Best Director at last November's UK MVAs, will be represented by Park Pictures in the US, the UK and the Netherlands for commercials, branded content and music videos.

The Camberwell School of Art graduate grew up in London and brings something of the city's cultural eclecticism to her impressive reel. The bold camera moves in this beguiling 2017 film for Under Armour effectively reinforce an expression of female empowerment and despite being a US-made ad, it's full to the brim with London attitude.


While still a student at Camberwell, Hudson fell in love with the moving image, cutting her teeth with 16mm. She was offered the opportunity to work as an art director on fashion shows before she was head-hunted by i-D magazine where she wrote and directed documentaries and art films.


Her meticulous attention to choreography and camera movement creates powerful and dramatic films.

In addition to her TVC work, Hudson is highly sought-after in the world of promos. She has worked with a number of significant artists including P!nk.

This promo's inner city grit is beautifully offset by enchanting contemporary dance and it's little wonder that she was among the best Director nominees at the UK MVAs.


Park Pictures' Jackie Kelman Bisbee knows a star when she sees one and couldn't have been more effusive when describing her new signing:

"Every once in a while, you see an emerging director's work and know you've seen the next generation of exceptional talent. Georgia Hudson is that director for us. Her meticulous attention to choreography and camera movement creates powerful and dramatic films. She applies her bold and poetic style to everything she touches, whether it be music videos, commercials or short films. We are thrilled to have Georgia as part of the Park family."


Georgia Hudson returned the compliment: "Not only is Park Pictures owned and run by one of the most charismatic and motivated women that you could meet, they have an insanely good roster of directors who make authentic and soulful work that holds impact and gravity.

"It is absolutely wild to be able to join that tribe and be a part of the artistic diversity and freshness... this company shone out to me as the place to go to have your creativity protected and projected."
