- NEW YORK
Danish filmmaker Peter Harton has joined Moxie Pictures for exclusive commercial representation in the U.S. and U.K.
A wildly subversive storyteller and one of Denmark’s most celebrated comedy directors, Harton began his career working in the camera department for Danish films such as Lars Von Trier’s Cannes Palme d’Or-winning Dancer in the Dark before turning to directing.
Harton, who was previously handled for U.S. ad assignments by Great Guns, has directed global campaigns for the likes of Ikea, LEGO and Spotify, among others, and garnered awards including Cannes Grand Prix and Gold Lions, D&AD and Creative Circle Awards.
Robert Fernandez, CEO/partner of Moxie Pictures, said, “I was immediately drawn to Peter’s eclectic, unique and hilarious body of work. He finds the perfect balance between cinematic storytelling and hysterical humor.”
Harton added, “I have been following Moxie for over a decade, and the work that comes from that place speaks for itself, whether it is fiction, documentary, or advertising. The directors inspire me, and the producers are very straightforward non-bullshitters and, on top of that, very kind too. That is quite remarkable.”
