Director Gemma Lee, known for her performance/dialogue work as well as for her visual sensibilities, has signed with Believe Media for representation in the U.S. as well as in the U.K. This marks her first U.K. representation. Earlier she had been handled in the U.S. by production house Madheart.
Hailing from the Isle of Mull in Scotland, Lee began her professional career in Australia after studying writing and directing at The Victoria College of the Arts’ film school in Melbourne. Her short film, The Wake, was voted Best of the Fest at the Palm Springs International ShortFest and screened at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2010 and again in 2013.
Since then, Lee has worked with such agencies as McCann, Ogilvy and George Patterson Y&R in Australia for clients including Hyundai, Powerbeats, Palmolive, and Tourism Tasmania. She was featured as a female director to watch on the Huffington Post in 2015.
Lee fortifies a directorial roster at Believe that already has strong representation of female talent. In the U.S., Believe is a certified woman-owned business.
Other recent Believe signings include renowned photographer/director Paola Kudacki, fashion film curator/director Kathryn Ferguson, and visual director Filip Tellander.
