Pulse Films has signed director Sam Walker for global representation spanning commercials, branded content and music videos.
Recently Walker directed “Someday,” a film for On The Beach featuring the iconic Iggy Pop, a defiantly optimistic ode to a better future. Walker also directed the notable “Our Stories” film, an epic that brought together the U.K.’s terrestrial TV channels for the first time ever. Both films were produced by Pulse Films in collaboration with Uncommon, an agency where Walker served as executive creative director. After his positive experience on the two assignments, Walker officially joined the Pulse roster.
Walker’s agency background includes not only Uncommon but also such shops as Mother, Fallon and Karmarama. He thus brings to Pulse a unique first-hand insight on creative briefs and is able to craft and collaborate closely with agencies and creative teams to produce breakthrough work.
Walker--who was last represented as a director by Riff Raff--is richly experienced helming large scale set pieces, telling stories in original ways and brining defining ideas to life through a strong understanding of narrative, music and editing.
James Sorton, managing director of commercials at Pulse Films, shared, “I’ve long admired Sam’s work as both a Director and a Creative Director, and I knew the moment we started talking about film-making, that we should be working together. He brings a unique perspective to every project, never loses focus on the core idea, and has an incredible passion for creativity and craft in film. Having already collaborated together on a number of standout projects we’re thrilled to formally welcome Sam to Pulse Films.”
Citing Pulse’s accomplishments in commercials and long-form fare, Walker described the production company as “the perfect home for my style and ambitions as a filmmaker.”
