- BROOKLYN, NY
Director Angie Bird has signed with bicoastal production company Curfew for spot representation in the U.S. Bird was most recently repped by Chelsea Pictures.
Bird broke onto the scene in 2016, winning the Cannes Young Director Award for her work with the homeless advocacy non-profit Raising the Roof. More recently, she won several Cannes Lions for her Gillette “First Shave” campaign--out of Grey Canada-- depicting trans community members’ experiences with shaving.
Bird just released her first project with Curfew, a joyous national campaign for the YMCA featuring all real members. Throughout her career, she’s worked with numerous multinational brands including P&G, Dove, Kellogg’s, and Allstate. She is equally at home in the worlds of commercials, documentary and fiction.
“From our first conversations with Angie, we knew she would be a perfect fit at Curfew. She’s such a multifaceted artist, and her ability to tell engaging stories on film seems to have no limit, said Mark Smith, who founded Curfew with Spencer Dennis.
Bird said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to join the Curfew team. They collectively create beautiful work for interesting clients and I’m so excited to start creating alongside them.”
Launched in Brooklyn in 2015, Curfew has undergone recent expansion, including the addition of an office in Los Angeles in 2021. Its roster of directors includes Bird, Mike Lee Thomas, Madeline Kelly, Abraham Felix, Daniel Uribe, and Mark & Spencer. Curfew is represented on the East Coast by Jared Shapiro of Moustache, on the West Coast by Lauren Schuchman of Diplomat Reps, and in the Midwest by Doug Stephen of Doug Stephen & Partners. Kathryn Berk is Curfew’s executive producer.
