- NEW YORK
Indie production studio Bindery has signed Selina Miles, an Australian director with experience in over 20 countries, for U.S. representation spanning commercials, branded content and music videos. This marks the first time she has been repped in the American ad market. She continues to be handled by Mindseye in the U.K., Art Bridge in France, and Exit Films in Australia and New Zealand.
A multi-faceted filmmaker, Miles began her career as an editor of online content before moving into directing commercials, and most recently working on her feature documentary, MARTHA, about iconic NYC photographer Martha Cooper, supported by Screen Australia and Submarine Entertainment.
Miles has worked with such brands as Pepsi, Red Bull, JD Sports and Ubisoft. She has created music videos for The Hilltop Hoods, Northlane and most recently for U.K. pop star Anne Marie. Her work on Carefree’s “Meet the Matriarchs” campaign via Exit Films in 2018 earned a Glass Spike Award for Change.
Miles has received praise for her Hilltop Hoods music video “Rattling the Keys to the Kingdom,” which was nominated for Music Video of the Year in Triple J’s J Awards. In 2013, she self-produced a range of hyper-lapse videos featuring artist Sofles. The second in this series, entitled “Limitless,” was released on YouTube in October 2013 and quickly gained over 12 million views.
“From feature films to commercial work, she’s the definition of a modern filmmaker. Balancing technical precision with artful nuance, Selina has a diverse range and a hugely collaborative spirit,” said Greg Beauchamp, founder and managing director of NYC-based Bindery.
Miles related, “2019 is set to be my most exciting year yet coming off completion of my first feature documentary MARTHA and a partnership with Bindery. We first worked together as Bindery provided vibrant and agile local production support on MARTHA, which proved invaluable to the success of the film. I’m honored to be joining their impressive roster and look forward to creating innovative films together.”
