Sasha Nixon and Forever are "thrilled" to confirm the signing of Los Angeles-based director Danica Kleinknecht.
According to their press release, Forever’s new recruit “twists the lemon” with fresh looks at her home state. “Just when you thought every last drop of colour has been wrung out of California”, Forever say, “Danica offers up something that goes deeper, slower, and more romantic”.
This has made her popular with West Coast artists like Ethan Gruska, who favour wild, textured visuals. Needless to say, Kleinknecht’s 2019 promo for ‘Event Horizon’ hit the spot with its Wyoming setting and escapist overtones.
Kleinknecht has also struck up a fruitful relationship with US singer-songwriter Raveena Aurora, filming two of the rising artist’s recent promos. ‘Mama’, for instance, was shot on location in Queens, New York, and stars three generations of Raveena’s family.
The result is a grounded yet vibrant insight into her Sikh heritage, and demonstrates Kleinknecht’s ability to coax affecting performances from her cast. Naturally, Forever reckon it’s time her talent was shared with UK brands and artists.
