Merman have completed the signing of Czech director Martin Krejci for commercial representation in the UK.

The move precedes the release of Krejci's debut feature, 'The True Adventures of Wolfboy', in October 2020, with the Prague-born director impressed by Merman's "fusion of long-form media, branded content, and old-school commercials production".


"More than anything", Krejci explains, "what drew me to Merman was their authenticity and their relevance. Having met the people whose vision is genuine and without any burden of the past, I was compelled to sign".


We're thrilled that Martin has decided to join and can see the merits in what we’re building together here at Merman.

The well-travelled filmmaker (who's currently based in Prague) adds: "I found there is a very personal interest in the directors, which makes me feel comfortable and responsible - part of a team. That was a challenge I was eager to accomplish in my next move."


He's greeted by Merman's joint managing directors, Siobhan Murphy and Spencer Dodd, who say: "We're thrilled that Martin has decided to join and can the merits in what we're building here at Merman. He's a wonderfully talented director with an exceptional eye for detail and his body of work speaks for itself.

"His technical know-how is unrivalled but his ability to deal with casting, performance, and narrative is exceptional. Martin's always looking to challenge himself and we are incredibly excited about the opportunity of working with him".
