Strengthens Production Offer with New Head of Talent and Executive Producer
The award winning Bigballs Films is growing its international footprint with a new office in Berlin headed up by multi-platform producer Matthias Lorenz-Meyer. Development on the office’s first project, a brand-funded multi-platform entertainment series, is already underway. Bigballs is also further strengthening its production offer with Nicci Clark joining as Head of Talent and Ross Whittow-Williams promoted to Executive Producer.
Clark joins from award-winning commercial production company Minds Eye Media where she was an Executive Producer; and prior to that she was a Directors Rep at The Love Commercial Production Company. The early part of her career was spent in advertising at AMV/BBDO where she was an Assistant Producer for almost 6 years. Whittow-Williams joined Bigballs Films in 2009 and has produced multi-platform projects for Carling, the Welsh Tourist Board and a global campaign for Oakley.
Bigballs Films’ CEO, Tom Thirlwall commented on the developments, “For the past six years Bigballs Films has been working at the vanguard of new advertising models and convergence. As a hub for film and multimedia, Berlin offers massive opportunities for a company like us that’s working at the intersection between the worlds of film, games and technology. Matthias’ approach is perfectly aligned with our business and his credentials and experience of the German market made him the perfect partner.”
Bigballs Films was recently awarded a prestigious Gold Cannes Lions award in the new Branded Content and Entertainment category for its work with Nike on social football game I AM PLAYR. Blending the best of game, film and TV production, I AM PLAYR creates a unique digital branded content platform where brands such as Nike, Redbull, Betfred and Alfa Romeo can credibly engage and communicate with their target audience by connecting with them on their own terms.
