 It's the work, stupid.

TWO THROUGH THE DOOR AT MY ACCOMPLICE.
9 November 2018

My Accomplice have bolstered their commercial division with the additions of director-slash-photographer Harvey Pearson and filmmaker Michael Yanny.

As 2018 draws to a close, founder Jamie Clark and co. aim to fire on all cylinders in 2019, with the arrivals of up-and-comer Pearson and established talent Yanny providing fresh impetus to their roster.

Let's learn more about My Accomplice's new recruits individually...


1. Harvey Pearson



Like most of his contemporaries, Harvey Pearson shot and edited his early work single-handedly, graduating from lo-fi YouTube videos to promos for Lancastrian bands. Before long, Pearson was ready for more high-profile gigs.

Aligning himself with rising music acts such as Aquilo and Låpsley saw Pearson travel the world with his camera, while he continues to prosper in the promo realm with his latest video for singer-songwriter Ben Francis Leftwich underlining his progress.




2. Michael Yanny



As for Michael Yanny, he brings a wealth of commercial and television experience to the roster. Having initially started as an animator, Yanny decided live-action was a more suitable channel for his creativity and zest for collaboration.

The switch quickly paid off as Yanny enjoyed stints at E4 and the BBC before establishing himself as a prolific freelance director. Now he's on the books at My Accomplice, Yanny looks to develop his reel further while collaborating with yet more ambitious clients.
