CHARLOTTE REGAN JOINS KNUCKLEHEAD
3 April 2018

Knucklehead have signed up-and-coming talent Charlotte Regan to their roster for UK representation.

Hackney-born Regan began shooting her first films at the age of fifteen, directing music promos for the emerging Grime scene. She also had her still photography documenting the London riots published by news outlets across the UK.

Like most of her contemporaries, Regan's shot and edited her early work single-handedly, making films which often explored the gritty side of London.

As her skills and ambition increased, so did the resources available to her and this was reflected by the sophistication of her first bona fide short 'Standby', which premiered at the Toronto International Film festival.

An exercise in restrained storytelling, the film focuses on the evolving relationship between a pair of coppers in the front seats of a patrol car. The film, both funny and poignant, won a slew of awards and was nominated for a BAFTA... not too shabby for a debut.



Right from the get-go, Regan has demonstrated an instinct for relaying human stories without relying on dialogue for exposition.

Her short film 'Fry-Up' offers an intimate portrayal of what could be a family's last morning together. With powerful performances and a stellar script which dances delicately around the issue at hand, the film offers a wonderfully quiet take on an emotionally fraught drama.



Most recently, Regan has turned her talents to the world of advertising. During World Autism Awareness week, she directed a compelling film to kick off the third year of the National Autistic Society's 'Too Much Information' campaign.

The intense ad sees a woman become slowly overwhelmed with various assaults on her senses while trying to use public transport - delayed schedules, crowded carriages, uncertain travelling conditions - until the cacophonous imagery is suddenly silenced. The film effectively highlights the struggles faced by people with sensory sensitivities, and - to judge by the evidence on social media - has been very well received.


Charlotte Regan's reel is now available at Knucklehead, so head on over and take a look. For more information, speak to Leonie Ellis on 020 7292 7950 or email her via leonie@knucklehead.co.uk.
