 It's the work, stupid.

OB MANAGEMENT WELCOME BEN NEWMAN.
7 February 2018

Director Ben Newman has joined OB Management for UK representation. Newman has a proven track record when it comes to promos, TVCs, and short films - now Otis Bell's merry band of agents are keen to share Newman's talents in 2018 and beyond.


Got some work in mind? Let's start with this Android commercial as the operating system powers Peigh Asante's transformation from injured runner to dauntless swimmer.


Scored by Rag'n'Bone Man's 'Wolves', the film encourages other would-be swimmers to get their feet wet. Newman's assured direction keeps us engaged both in and out of the water.

He's become a popular choice for brands seeking a dynamic outcome. For instance, this Smart Car ad follows skateboarders Kilian Martin and Alfredo Urbon on a tandem skate session.



Rare is the car ad that puts another form of transport first. However, the marque's faith in Newman paid off with an arresting execution.

Global brands and artists continue to seek Newman's expertise. Now backed by OB Management, Newman can't wait to add yet more accomplished work to his reel.

You can view Ben Newman's reel here. For more information, ring OB Management on 020 7388 6031.
