JUSTIN TYLER CLOSE JOINS OB MANAGEMENT.
4 December 2019

OB Management are pleased to now represent director, writer, artist, and photographer Justin Tyler Close in the UK.

The Canadian-born polymath is known for his thoughtful, experimental reel, as well as founding his own online culture magazine in 2010. These days, however, Close is rooted behind the camera.



Whether it's a documentary for Saucony running shoes that explores writer's block or capturing a base jumper in the Swiss Alps for Mastercard, Close is determined to bring more thought-provoking subject matter to viewers' attention.

His canvas only broadens as time goes on, as evidenced by his upcoming Fifty Eleven Project - a contemporary art exhibition comprised of eleven separate short films set to eleven accompanying musical compositions.

This ability to jump between commercial and artistic projects means it's always worth keeping an eye on Close's output… with OB Management keen to ensure he receives extra attention on these shores.



For more on Justin Tyler Close and OB Management's commercial roster, ring Jez Murrell (jez@obmanagement.co.uk) or Ellen Crane (ellen@obmanagement.co.uk) on 020 7388 6031.
