PRETTYBIRD UK has signed 2021 UKMVA award-winning director Lucrecia Taormina. Her ascent as a director started in part when she earned the Best Pop Newcomer award at the 2019 UKMVA’s for her Tarantino-esque Ashnikko music video, making her the only female director to win an award that night. Taormina’s work has often gone viral, achieving public acclaim and garnering attention on the international awards circuit. She has won awards from the Kinsale Shark, Creative Circle, 1.4 and UKMVA competitions, as well as recognition at the Cannes Lions Young Directors Awards, and Ciclope Awards. Originally from Buenos Airies, Taormina moved to London’s Soho to study photography. Her studies led to a love of the moving image and enabled her to find her voice and aesthetic as a director. The recent work Taormina is most proud of is her music video for Ibeyi ft Jorja Smith--”Lavender & Red Roses”...
