Director Georgi Banks-Davies has signed with Joinery for U.S. representation. Her clients include Coca Cola, South African Airways, InterContinental Hotels, Shell, Ericcson, BMW and Credit Suisse.
Banks-Davies began directing commercials at the BBC after graduating from film school, quickly poached by CNN International soon after to direct content for the network’s global coverage of news, current affairs, politics and sports. That tenure allowed Banks-Davies to develop her unique, evocative style of storytelling that focuses on shared human emotions framed in a boldly cinematic style:
“Jamaica” for Coca Cola exemplifies this approach. It’s absorbing work shot on the Caribbean island that plays out as a fun, infectious ride full of atmosphere and character. “Soul” for AT&T through BBDO NY also features beautifully considered moments of family life.
Banks-Davies is currently in post wrapping projects for Kohler through O&M, India, plus work for T-Mobile through DDB, Hamburg that follows on from her previous successful World Cup campaign. Two online films for Nivea through AKQA, London will also be released in upcoming weeks. Prior to Joinery, Banks-Davies was with Mad Heart in the U.S.
