MEET THE FRESH FILM FOUR.
30 July 2021

Directors Fredgy NoŽl, Dennis Leupold, Good Boy Wolf, and Patricia Gloum have joined Fresh Film for commercial representation.

Founder and executive creative director Kim Griffin says: "It's the perfect time for these amazing new voices to join our family as we enter our next phase of development. These are really exciting times for us!"


1. Fredgy NoŽl



New York's Fredgy NoŽl cut her teeth at cable channels MTV, VH1, and Nickelodeon before advertising knocked on her door. She now has a tidy commercial reel driven by inclusivity and female-focused stories.

NoŽl is also a prolific screenwriter and documentary filmmaker, making her a regular on the film festival circuit. Boosted by access to new markets, this productive streak looks set to continue at Fresh Film.



2. Dennis Leupold



Dennis Leupold is a German director and photographer who swapped DŁsseldorf for New York City as a 22-year-old. As relocations go, one fashion capital for another is not too shabby.

He threw himself into beauty campaigns and photo shoots that won him the trust of fashion bigwigs worldwide. Meanwhile, a fruitful working relationship with Rihanna keeps Leupold busy between film projects.



3. Good Boy Wolf



Alzheimer's, boxing, and climate change are just some of the topics Good Boy Wolf has covered in his career so far, enthralling viewers with his assured take on documentary filmmaking.

Whether it's the plight of an elderly couple in the Scottish countryside or a trenchant reminder that excessive pollution can wreak havoc on our children's health, Good Boy Wolf's output is hard-hitting, thought-provoking fare.



4. Patricia Gloum



Boston-born, Paris-raised director Patricia Gloum likes to keep audiences on their toes. Thatís why a banana attached to a selfie stick can appear at any time in her colorful showreel.

Gloum's graphic design background explains her considered palette and visual nous. She'd rather direct than sit at a desk though, which suits clients like Vogue, Uniqlo, and MCM Worldwide down to the ground.
