A FAMILIA SIGHT FOR NIALL COFFEY.
9 January 2024

FAMILIA have completed the signing of director and cinematographer Niall Coffey. The move follows the November 2023 release of 'The Taste Of A Job Well Done' for Ballantine's, who asked Coffey to show how whisky is stored and served the right way.

No offence to the barman who must work his arse off at this time of this year, but he has the easy job: pour some blended Scotch whisky into a glass with ice cubes. The real hard work takes place at Ballantine's headquarters, where staff lug around barrels made from American oak. Even so, Coffey does both the product and its handlers justice.


Such work leads FAMILIA partner and managing director Toby Walsham to say: "Niall has the ability to create high-end, cinematic visuals that exude the feeling of luxury absolutely effortlessly, no matter the product. We.ve hugely enjoyed our creative collaborations with him in the past.

"We are also are excited to welcome him to our roster at a pivotal point in our company’s evolution, as we embark on a year of significant growth both creatively and operationally. As we branch into new markets, we know Niall's creative approach will be a great benefit to our global clients."
